Moving toward multimedia electronic health records: how do we get there?

By

This report, based on a workshop jointly sponsored by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Biomedical Engineering and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, examines the role and value of images as multimedia data in electronic health records (EHRs)…. The Mayo Clinic, a non-profit, large, integrated, multidisciplinary patient-focused group practice, initially implemented an EHR in 1995, and has had a fully functional, paperless EHR since 2004. Mayo's geographical distribution across five states and over 65 communities requires an EHR system that is capable of meeting varying levels and types of demand. Mayo handles a large volume of images: 775 000 images in total are processed each day, of which 444 000 are radiology images.
