Italian GPs to Receive X-Rays Online
Italy’s San Salvatore Hospital in the Abruzzo Region has announced the development and adoption of a new radiology information system module from Carestream Health.
The Italian-language module allows GPs to directly book digital x-ray examinations for their patients and receive feedback about the examination, together with the accompanying report and the images back on their PC. As well as providing faster tests and results for the patients, it cuts the number of trips they must make to the hospital.
The first project of its kind in Italy, a pilot study is currently underway involving 60 GPs with plans to have the system fully operational with 90 doctors by the middle of 2009.
