WDMH introduces new way to share medical images and reports

Patients visiting WDMH for tests such as an x-ray, mammogram or CT Scan can now access their medical imaging and reports online. This new technology eliminates the need to use CD-ROMs to share medical imaging with patients or referring physicians. This is a free service offered through PocketHealth.

“Partnering with PocketHealth improves patient access to their records, allowing them to be active partners in their care. Plus, staff spend less time on administrative tasks, improving the overall healthcare experience,” explains WDMH CEO Cholly Boland.

“Instead of returning to the hospital for a CD every time they want their medical images to share or for their personal records, patients can enrol at www.pockethealth.com/WDMH,” adds Clinical Manager Kyle Jones. “Once the records are available for viewing, the patient will receive an email from PocketHealth with a secure link to access, store and share their images, all in one place.”

If you would like to provide comments or suggestions about hospital services, please contact Cholly Boland, President and CEO, Winchester District Memorial Hospital at 613.774.1049 or by email at cboland@wdmh.on.ca.
