Working toward patient control of information


I had a chance to speak with Dr. David Mendelson during the Radiological Society of North America show in Chicago this week… His talk included an update on a pilot project that his hospital and four other provider organizations are working on… to use standards-based messages to send encrypted radiological images and reports to a data clearinghouse, where they will be routed to patients' personal health records. Mt. Sinai went live with the system in August, Mendelson said, followed by medical centers affiliated with University of California-San Francisco, the University of Maryland and the Mayo Clinic, with a recent addition to the group, the University of Chicago, working to get launched.
