For Your Practice

Whether it’s through the latest medical technology or a simple human touch, Detroit Medical Center (DMC) is committed to developing mutually beneficial partnerships with physicians. We understand the needs of both primary care and specialty physicians and are dedicated to providing excellence in physician service and support. The DMC has created a physician network that includes a seamless continuum of services, supports collaborative practice and improves overall health. We offer several innovative programs and services for physicians, including:


The Citrix Desktop provides physicians with access to patient reports (electronic records), including orders, laboratory results, images and transcribed reports online from any desktop - 24/7. This comprehensive desktop also features:

  • FirstNet, an emergency services application that facilitates rapid movement of patient throughout the emergency department
  • PACS, a Web viewer for radiology images; and
  • PowerChart Office, an office process, schedulingand patient room tracking tool.

The electronic signing, modifying or rejecting of medical record documents virtually, and the use of diagnostic resources and clinic schedules is also available. Patients’ records can be viewed no matter what DMC facility they were treated. Citrix also offers the SUSPEND option, which saves records and information for up to four hours regardless of the computer’s location. Another asset of Citrix is the DMC Portal, which opens in a single “browser” window. The portal homepage (which can be customized) includes everything from access to the DMC Formulary to medical practice guidelines and literature (journal briefs, medical journals) to clinical tools.
