Introducing ‘The Stork’, giving patients direct, online access to their obstetric ultrasound images
At Astra Radiology, we’re always looking at ways to provide our patients with the best possible service.
After significant customer feedback, we realized there was a need for a more user-friendly way for obstetric patients to access their images, so we signed on with a new cloud based obstetric imaging service, aptly named ‘The Stork’.
The Stork offers patients direct, online access to their ultrasound images from any device, while also maintaining their privacy.
Once a scan is completed, the patient is sent a link and an access code via email or SMS. They then simply follow the link, enter their code and view their images on their phone, tablet or computer.
Astra Radiology continues to store all the original ultrasound images and these are available for referrers to access at any time.
The Stork was officially launched at the end of June. To find out more, please go to www.thestork.co.nz
