Reliable, well maintained scanners
Partners Imaging scanners (modalities) meets the American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation (www.acr.org) standards. The ACR imposes tougher accreditation standards each year and Partners Imaging Centers will meet all deadlines to ensure certification is made on time. This commitment to certification provides evidence that our equipment is serviced and maintained regularly and to the highest standards. Our goal is to provide the highest quality resolution scans so that our radiologists can provide the most accurate read for you.
Access to reports & key images
Reports are traditionally faxed to referring offices and is our default method of delivering reports, however, Partners Imaging Centers also have a web portal for referring physicians that not only provides patient reports, but also a set of images including any key images produced. Each physician / key member can have their own login credentials and a group can be setup so all physicians have access to their group’s patients.
The web portal address is www.picreports.com (please call for an alternative address if you use a Mac).
Access to high resolution images
For those offices that would like to see the patients scans in the highest quality resolution, we can provide access to our full image viewer at no charge. This will allow your physician to explore the images in great detail with the full tool-set available for use. Simply contact your local Partners Imaging center and our marketing representative will install as many copies as needed to your PC equipment. Included with the software, is the ability to access the patient reports at the same time.
Receiving reports directly into your EMR
Partners Imaging Centers can provide several options to send radiology reports electronically into a referring office’s EMR (electronic medical record) software. The result of this technology advance for referring offices will mean that there will be no need to scan faxed reports received and manually upload them to the EMR. The Partners Imaging reports will arrive within seconds of the report being signed and will be sent to the EMR server for final approval and uploading. These options meet the CMS Meaningful use Stage 2 requirement.
For those offices that are using the free cloud web based EMR software from Practice Fusion, an HL7 interface is already established to Partners radiology reports can be sent directly into the patients file within seconds of the report being signed by the Partners radiologist.
