Image Exchange is an online image-sharing service that allows CRISP users to view patient diagnostic images in one central location.
Currently, 50 hospitals and 9 outpatient groups across Maryland and DC are contributing images to the Image Exchange service. These images are then made available to CRISP users through our portals to facilitate greater collaboration and efficiency among healthcare providers, ultimately leading to higher quality patient care.
The diagnostic images are securely stored on servers located within each connected hospital’s local environment. Images taken within the last 90 days are made available to all authorized CRISP users within seconds of collection, while deeper archives of images older than 90 days are available within minutes.
CRISP offers two ways of viewing patient clinical data and images. The first option is to directly log on to the CRISP Portal, using specific user credentials. The second option is to access images via the HIE InContext platform within each respective EMR.
In addition to the image access provided through Health Records and Imaging Worklist, Image Exchange participants can also request access to the following features: Transfer-to-PACS and Emergent.
