Hagersville, ON — April 17th, 2019
The West Haldimand General Hospital is a small rural community hospital in the town of Hagersville, which provides basic hospital and health care services to the people of Hagersville, Caledonia, Jarvis, Townsend, Cayuga, Fisherville, Selkirk, Nanticoke, the Six Nations of the Grand River Reserve and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations.
Starting today, WHGH patients can visit pocket.health/WHGH, enroll for online access and receive access to their diagnostic-quality imaging records within minutes.
Once patients receive access, their imaging history WHGH is stored permanently in their account for future access, alongside any other requested imaging records from PocketHealth-enabled clinics/hospitals across North America. If they wish to share with their specialist or another healthcare facility, they can share their diagnostic-quality (DICOM) imaging via email, fax, printing off a page with a secure link, or even burning their own CD directly from their account.
Meanwhile, their physicians can view the imaging shared with them using a powerful, Health Canada-certified viewer right from their web browser, without any software required.
WHGH joins over 500 other hospitals, clinics and mobile imaging sites across North America that have deployed the PocketHealth platform for their patients.
