Cloud-based image exchange services are the main driver behind image enabling HIEs. Only 2% of the roughly 300 HIEs that exist today support medical images. However, text based records only tell part of the story. The sharing of medical imaging data provides a whole new world of untapped potential in HIEs.
On a broad scale, image enabling an HIE refers to the electronic mobilization of imaging across organizations within a region, community, or hospital system. Providers must be able to electronically view and exchange diagnostic imaging data in real time. HIEs aim to change healthcare by providing a more efficient, cost effective, and patient friendly manner of health data exchange.
Our eBook, Image Enabling the Health Information Exchange, discusses 6 critical factors that have been proven to successfully drive image-enablement.
1) Establish Trust Among Stakeholders
2) Assign an Internal Champion
3) Build a Consistent Brand
4) Foster User Engagement
5) Stay Neutral
6) Deliver a Strong Return on Investment
