Practice Fusion, one of the largest physician EHR providers has announced the launch of its Medical Imaging API to digitally connect imaging centers to physicians for seamless EHR integration. The API will help physicians meet the upcoming changes in the Meaningful Use federal EHR incentive program that require physicians to order and receive imaging results electronically.
Meeting the Meaningful Use requirements puts significant pressure on the $100 billion a year imaging industry to offer their services through an EHR, as pharmacies and labs have done in recent years. Practice Fusion’s API offers imaging centers the first single-interface solution capable of serving all their clients.
Imaging centers who connect with the API establish a single connection available to any provider who requests integration. This simple, cost-effective solution also gives hospital-based and independent imaging centers exposure to tens of thousands of referring providers looking for a digital imaging connection to fulfill Meaningful Use. Connection is free to providers and Practice Fusion’s implementation teams can rapidly integrate providers in a matter of days or weeks.
