Andrew is a 35-year-old male who was playing basketball and injured his ankle. The pain and swelling persisted for a week, so he visited his primary care provider who sent him to a local radiology center for a CT. The radiologist was able to see that he had sustained some ligament damage. It was also noted that he had had a prior complicated fracture which the radiologist was able to access and view in high-quality through Image Exchange.
The radiologist sent his findings to the primary care provider via Results Delivery. His primary office referred him to an orthopedist for follow-up care.
The primary care doctor was able to review his past history and gather a list of his medications.
The radiologist accessed images through the HIE and noted the prior ankle injury through Image Exchange.
They sent a Direct Mail to the orthopedist for a recommended treatment and follow-up care.
