UMass Memorial Health Care Using Software as a Service for Physicians to Connect and Receive Clinical Results in Office Practice
Posted Oct 15 2009 10:01pm
More news on hospitals and physicians getting connected in Massachusetts. This will add even more value and less expense in potentially duplicating tests that have already been done for patients and for the physicians information from the hospital files. From the other side of the coin, the hospital will be able to receive direct orders from the physician, a win-win for both sides. There was no mention of which practice EMRs could participate and the exact process, but I’m sure there will be more information later on. BD
