Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI), an Indianapolis outpatient imaging provider, will participate in the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC), a health information exchange (HIE) and a statewide network focused on supporting optimal clinical care with up-to-date, secure, immediately accessible patient information.
“We are pleased to be the first medical imaging provider to join the INPC. Our organization understands the importance of having accurate patient data, including diagnostic imaging information, in the hands of our region's emergency room and primary care physicians, when and where they need it. Though integrating this information is challenging for any provider, our shared goal is better patient care via an exchange of critical information," said CDI Vice President Laura Stark.
"With CDI's participation in the INPC, imaging results will be securely available to a patient's provider when needed for care in more care settings, more efficiently, while at the same time improving the safety of the care they receive," said J. Marc Overhage, MD, PhD, director of medical informatics at Regenstrief Institute, an informatics and healthcare research organization in Indianapolis.
