WATERLOO, Ontario, Nov. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Client Outlook, a leading provider of FDA Class II enterprise diagnostic and clinical image viewing solutions, announced today its partnership with PocketHealth to give patients online access to their medical imaging records.
PocketHealth is leading a revolution that empowers patients to become active participants in their healthcare journey. Today’s medical ecosystem often necessitates patient referrals to multiple, unconnected healthcare providers. Sharing diagnostic imaging records is a key component of the referral process, however lack of interoperability between providers presents challenges. Images are often inaccessible, imposing the need to be transferred via cumbersome CDs. Physicians face the prospect of making decisions with imperfect information, or subjecting patients to additional tests and repeat radiation. PocketHealth solves this problem by giving patients the tools to easily access their own records themselves, so they can share directly with physicians.
The PocketHealth platform is used by hundreds of hospitals and imaging clinics across North America to give patients instant, secure access to their own records anywhere, on any device. PocketHealth uses a cloud-based infrastructure that deploys on top of any PACS to move medical records from imaging providers to patients. There is no need for customized IT integration or app installation, making it highly affordable and easy to implement.
eUnity, healthcare’s first Smartviewer, enabled PocketHealth to deliver a powerful image viewing experience. With a highly adaptable zero-footprint software platform that combines advanced imaging and integration functionality, eUnity meets the performance demands for clinical and diagnostic use. Advanced capabilities include MIP/MPR/3D, PET/CT fusion and mammography. eUnity requires no specialized hardware and needs only minimal resources to deploy, making it an ideal solution for a cloud platform like PocketHealth.
“Our core belief is that when patients control the flow of their health data, the operational benefit for imaging providers is massive. But, true autonomy for the patient relies completely on a seamless, powerful viewing experience for the physicians they share with,” said Rishi Nayyar, Co-founder and CEO, PocketHealth. “eUnity is the only solution that had the capability to integrate so tightly with our platform and provide that experience. The speed and viewing performance are undeniably powerful which deepens our connection with physicians and reinforces the value of our platform.” Nayyar added, “We are also delighted to work with a fellow Canadian imaging partner as we continue to expand PocketHealth globally.”
“PocketHealth represents a unique patient-centered approach that meshes with our vision to lead the evolution of image viewing from hospital department to healthcare enterprise – and now this includes the patient,” said Brenda Rankin, COO and Co-founder, Client Outlook. “We are extremely impressed by PocketHealth’s technology as well as their insight and vision to develop a new standard for record sharing.” Rankin added: “We are equally excited to cooperate with a local Canadian company to present our capabilities and further both our missions on a global scale.”
