Bringing Video Imaging to the Community Health Record

Bringing Video Imaging to the Community Health Record

Through the Delaware Health Information Network’s latest collaboration, DHIN enrolled healthcare professionals can now view patient echocardiograms in ProAccess (CHR) from St. Francis Hospital.

This video technology shows the echo in action, giving a patient’s healthcare team a view of the blood flowing through the heart. This dynamic technology marks an improvement from the static image usually available in the patient record.

St. Francis is the first data center in Delaware with this capability, and we look forward to rolling this functionality out to additional centers.

  • “The Medication History service offered through DHIN is valuable to us for tracking medication adherence.  As a pharmacist for the CCHS Kidney Transplant Program, it is sometimes difficult to get quantifiable medication adherence data.  DHIN's medication history showed us actual prescription fill history from a national database, which gives us a snapshot into patient compliance especially after a kidney transplant.  It saves me a lot of time vs. trying to call individual pharmacies to get this information.  I can just log onto the DHIN portal and retrieve medication history on the patient.”

  • “The information on DHIN is so helpful to our practice.  We have patients come into the office that can't remember where they had lab or radiology work done.  Utilizing the DHIN system, we log onto DHIN, type in the patient's name and we can see where the patient had reports done.  It really does help us from having to call around and track down that information.”

  • “I wish we would have been on DHIN from the beginning! It’s really simplified things – before, we would be on and off the phone all day with the hospitals trying to get results, and we had so much trouble getting all the information we needed.  Being the nurse manager, I get so tied up during the day, so DHIN has made my life so much easier.”

  • “We totally love DHIN! It is such a time saver and I can get ACCURATE information, as opposed to getting a nurse at the hospital who may not have the time for me.  Sometimes it even saves me from going to the hospital to see the patient, and it saves the resident from getting unnecessary labs if they have already had them done in the hospital. We LOVE DHIN!!! Use it almost daily!”

  •  “Using DHIN is easier than having to call around to different doctors and practices for results. We go through our patient list every day to see if we “DHIN’ed” everyone before they come in for a visit. I don’t know what we would do without DHIN.”

    Sharon Royston, Practice Administrator
    Delaware Cardiovascular Associates,

  • “In primary care, we are overloaded with faxes and paperwork.  I am a solo internist and since I started using DHIN recently I feel that I am better organized and have more time to spend with patients, having their labs and test results at my fingertips.  The technical support that I have received from DHIN so far has been exceptional and my office staff training went smoothly. The DHIN website is user friendly and we were up and running in no time. So I’m telling my colleagues, “Let’s DHIN” and be done with paper!”’

    Dr. Darius Sypek, PA

  • “DHIN has been a great partner in our on-going fight against cancer.  The information on DHIN supports the collective effort for finding better ways to diagnose and treat the various cancers, thus improving survival outcomes. DHIN has helped fill in the diagnostic, treatment, and follow up gaps in order to present a complete picture of the patients’ clinical cancer journeys, which in turn, furthers the war on cancer.”

  • “Using the DHIN, I can now search easily for missing discharge summaries, hospital admission notes, labs and x-rays without picking up the phone.  I find it so much easier to get information that used to take so much effort and time to retrieve.  This was too long coming.”

    Dr. Marc Grobman
    Private Practice

  • “Delaware patients and providers are lucky to have DHIN.  The operational efficiencies created by the Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN) are truly unparalleled.  Where else can you go for one stop shopping for all of your patient’s test results and reports?  DHIN is a must have for managers looking to create operational efficiency in private practice.”
