What is Northwest ImageShare?
Northwest ImageShare provides all physicians in the area fast centralized access to patient images and reports, regardless of where the image was acquired. The result is improved, overall care.
Northwest ImageShare is a cloud-based regional imaging management solution run in collaboration between Harrison Medical Center, Advanced Medical Imaging, Harrison Health Partners, The Doctors Clinic, and Olympic Radiology to overcome the technical challenges of accessing patient images and information from various offices. Historically, patients were required to visit provider offices to pick up CD’s of their imaging studies if they visited a new physician. Now with Northwest ImageShare, one data center supplies all necessary patient information – when requested – regardless of which provider did the study.
