GI Endoscopy photos and reports

Improve the process for setting up direct uploading of GI Endoscopy photos and reports to Vista Imaging.

 

This responsibility was transferred from IRM to Biomed, but Biomed was not taught how to connect GI endoscopy equipment to Vista Imaging Capture and was not given the authority to order needed computer hardware, and software, or to connect the equipment to the VHA network.

 

Directly uploading GI Endoscopy photos and reports would:

1) Save money, by

a) Decreasing purchases of printer paper, and printer ribbons

b) Decreasing Health Information scanning

2) Improve the quality of care, by

a) Decreasing the time it takes to get GI Endoscopy photos and reports into the Vista Imaging medical record

b) Improve the quality of GI Endoscopy photos and reports
