HEALTHeLINK today announced that Western New York MRI, LLP and its affiliates (WNYMRI) is the latest independent radiology practice to join Western New York’s clinical information exchange as a data source. With authorized patient consent, the nearly 3,000 physicians who are participating in HEALTHeLINK now have access to radiology reports and diagnostic quality images from WNYMRI.
“More than 85% of the radiology reports generated in Western New York hospitals and independent radiology practices like WNYMRI are now available through HEALTHeLINK,” said Dan Porreca, HEALTHeLINK’s executive director. “By accessing this information via HEALTHeLINK, treating physicians can improve the quality of care they provide by having recent radiology and other test results right at their fingertips. In addition, providers will reduce the number of unnecessary duplicate radiology tests being ordered reducing the amount of radiation exposure for their patients.”
