Convenient Mammograms For employees
Women due for annual breast screening exams may now walk in at any of Radiology's locations and request an exam; there is no need to schedule an appointment. If staff are busy seeing patients, they will take a phone number to call you when exam slots open. The policy is in effect at the Lee Bell Breast Imaging Center, Ambulatory Care Center at 850 Boylston and the Health Care Center in Foxborough. Annual screening mammograms are offered to women age 40 and older with no history of a breast condition.

ICD-10 Update about Delay
As a result of the ICD-10 delay until at least Oct. 1, 2015, BWHC ICD-10 workgroups will review and revise current project timelines to improve communications, enhance education plans for provider and non-provider training and provide better coordination with Partners eCare teams on BWHC Epic rollout and training. These two projects, which now overlap, will allow for a robust education and operations strategy. Learn more at BWHPikeNotes.org. Contact BWHCICD10@partners.org with questions.
