The two worlds of EMS and hospital records generally speak two different languages – each based on their own national standards for documentation. However, achieving interoperability is faster and easier than you might imagine. Using technologies from ImageTrend and Kno2, Carilion Clinic, headquartered in Virginia, was able to get patients’ prehospital records into their Epic EMR electronically and realize several benefits. The transporting EMS agencies also benefitted in the process.
HIH Paired with ImageTrend’s leading technologies such as Hospital Hub™ and ImageTrend Elite™, emergency healthcare systems establish Truly Connected Health care Data.
