German hospital links teleradiology to Siemens EHR
Klinikum Chemnitz has linked its teleradiology service with the Soarian Integrated Care (Soarian IC) eHealth EHR solution from Siemens Healthcare.

Data obtained from a remote diagnosis can be stored in a shared health record and then used for information exchange between different facilities participating in the patient's treatment, according to Siemens.

Siemens supplied and implemented the overall technical solution including the software for the radiological image communication as well as Soarian IC.

The Chemnitz, Germany-based hospital said it plans to provide diagnostic resources and medical expertise to county hospitals, medical centers and practicing physicians in the fields of neurosurgery, traumatology, angiology and radiology.
