eHealth inks image exchange deal with Rochester RHIO
eHealth Global Technologies has signed an agreement with the Rochester Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO) to provide the eHealthConnect Image Exchange service for a two-year initial term.

The eHealthConnect Image Exchange service for Rochester RHIO of N.Y., allows automated access to radiology imaging across the Rochester community and provides a link for the Monroe County Department of Public Health to access imaging studies for its work in tuberculosis tracking and other public health issues, according to the Rochester, N.Y.-based company. A HEAL NY funded recipient, Rochester RHIO serves 1.2 million people in nine counties.

eHealth said its eHealthConnect Image Exchange service will integrate with the Rochester RHIO’s Axolotl’s Elysium health information exchange (HIE) system, and will connect to the PACS imaging systems at up to eight radiology providers in the Rochester, N.Y., area. The company said its eHealth Global’s eHealthViewer application will be used to view the radiology exams when a user selects these exams from within the web-based Elysium HIE system.
