St. Joseph’s Imaging strives to offer our patients convenient, high-quality care. One of the ways we do this is by offering our patients online services through our secure website. Over the next few months, patients will have access to our Patient Web Portal. To protect your privacy, identity verification online is required.
The Patient Web Portal currently allows patients to:
· View your clinical history summary
· Link to educational information regarding their procedures
Patients have the ability to:
· Manage clinical histories
· Access to reports, 14 days of report approval
· Update personal profile
This technology enhances the quality, coordination, and safety of patient care while helping medical providers operate more efficiently and cost effectively.
An EHR makes it easier for you to take a more active, informed role in managing your own health-care needs, empowering you to better understand your medical conditions, treatments, and preventive regimes and ensure that all members of your healthcare team are fully informed about your medical history.
Who’s Reading my Exams
In 2014, St. Joseph’s Imaging and St. Joseph’ s Hospital entered into a joint venture for all radiology services provided by St. Joseph’s Imaging as well as the out- patient imaging services provided by St. Joseph’s Hospital. The radiologists of St. Joseph’s Imaging have been working at the hospital since 1976. In 1986, they opened their first Imaging Center in The North Medical Building. Today, St. Joseph’s Imaging operates out of nine Imaging Centers and one out-patient clinic.
St. Joseph’s Imaging was the first Radiology Center to move to a Picture Archival Communication System or PACS. This digital system benefited our patients in many ways. It allowed us to read exams on computer monitors, archive those exams on a computer server and read the images from multiple locations. The difference between film and digital images is much like the difference between your old camera and the newest digital one.
St. Joseph’s Imaging then invested in digital equipment capable of transferring data directly to our image server. The most important piece of digital equipment became the mammogram unit. Here, the radiologist was able to manipulate images allowing them to see calcifications and tumors more clearly.
Later, St. Joseph’s Imaging became certified by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Center of Excellence. We developed “The Program”. The purpose of The Program is to ensure that all women get equal access to the best medical care possible. Most women have an annual mammogram to make sure they are healthy. At St. Joseph’s Imaging we have many locations making it convenient for women to have a screening mammogram. If the mammogram is not normal, the patient meets with our Nurse Practitioner who is also a Certified Breast Health Navigator. The Navigator meets with the patient and literally holds her hand, answers questions and coordinates her care.
There are twenty three board certified radiologists at St. Joseph’s Imaging. There are several Nurse Practitioners or Physician Assistants. There are more than sixty registered and certified technologists, several nurses, a fully functioning Information Technology department and many more receptionists and schedulers. St. Joseph’s Imaging is a great place to work with a zero percent turn-over except for relocations. Please enjoy your experience with us and be sure to let us know how we are doing. You are important and our goal is to treat you with dignity, take the best images possible and make you happy.
