Medicom automates manual processes for locating and accessing prior clinical information. Healthcare
providers rely on Medicom to reduce administrative overhead and improve physician satisfaction.
Clinics spend over $5,000 for skilled technical staff to establish HL7 interfaces every time they
want to connect with outside facilities.A VPN connection is required in most cases and
must be configured individually to establish the connections.
Whenever a new interface needs to be established, Medicom will upload a sample HL7 ORM and ORU
from the outside facility to our interface builder.
While an HL7 interface may be established, clinics frequently have troubles with the HL7 message
not returning images to the referring provider.Referring physicians are often left
looking for images on InteleConnect portal or loading on a CD to view images.
Through Imagex, referring physicians have access to images ordered, directly in their EMR.
Every state has different requirements for patient consent when it comes to image sharing with
outside facilities.A typical process for acquiring prior exams will include:
Providers need to manually locate prior studies/exams for patients
The use of VPNs, discs and cloud solutions can be nearly eliminated with Medicom’s solutions.
When priors are inaccessible, patients may be re-imaged/rescheduled or radiologists may perform a wet read.In the case of a wet read, once priors are received, radiologists will perform an addendum.
With Medicom, priors are accessible electronically so that radiologists have all of the patient information available to them when needed.
The VA’s current method for sending and receiving images with private sector facilities is labor intensive:
With Medicom’s Imagex solution any provider can connect to VA medical centers to exchange images and reports electronically.Read more about our VA integration efforts here.
