Radiologists have been working to reduce repeated medical imaging procedures in hopes of trimming clinical expenses that can negatively impact revenue cycle management. By synchronizing their PACS with electronic medical records, physicians can better track patients’ health histories.
According to DOTMed Healthcare Business News, the ability for radiologists to embed images into records can improve clinical reports. When EMRs and PACS can display information on the same patient simultaneously, physicians get a much bigger picture of his or her current medical condition. This allows radiologists and referring doctors to seamlessly share information for the continuum of care.
