Chicago, IL, USA — At this year’s Radiology Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2018), patient-centric cloud solutions made meaningful strides towards equipping patient populations with more tools and control over their health journey than ever before. At the center of this movement was PocketHealth, a pioneer in embedding patient-centricity into the medical imaging workflow.
PocketHealth, with implementations in over 500 imaging sites across North America, debuted the latest patient-centric cloud technology and demonstrated how a patient-initiated and patient-funded image exchange was the solution to the medical imaging industry’s reliance on CD-burning and captive physician portals.
New Partnerships, New Ways to Share
At the conference venue PocketHealth debuted a number of key technologies and partnerships to its North American client base:
Google Partnership: PocketHealth announced that it had joined the Google Cloud Technology Partner Program with a goal of using Google Cloud technology to enhance the performance of its physician access and diagnostic experience.
Provider-to-Provider Sharing: The latest addition to PocketHealth’s industry-leading cloud platform: direct, seamless sharing between healthcare providers.
Fax-Sharing: The newest sharing option for patients: instant fax sharing of full, diagnostic-quality imaging access to any physician, anywhere in the world.
PocketHealth API: A robust, RESTful developer API aimed at enabling RIS/PACS developers to integrate a trusted patient access experience natively into their existing software offerings.
Through the demonstration of creative, patient-centric tools that help imaging data more more seamlessly to patients and to providers, PocketHealth hopes to continue towards its mission of building North America’s first truly patient-centric, responsible and accessible image sharing network.
PocketHealth is a patient-centric cloud platform that enables imaging providers across North America to share imaging records electronically with patients, instantly and securely. PocketHealth’s PACS-agnostic Gateway deploys with ease and has enabled over 500 hospitals, imaging clinics and mobile imaging sites across North America to modernize and secure their image release process. The company believes that by placing patients at the center of the record release process, data moves more ethically, easily and securely throughout the care journey. Learn more at www.pocket.health.
