Miami, FL – January 31st, 2018
South Florida-based Unique Imaging, a leading specialty imaging provider with clinic locations in Miami and Aventura, has partnered with PocketHealth to provide patients with instant, online access to their medical imaging exams.
Since the platform’s launch in October 2018, Unique Imaging patients have been able to securely provide signed consent for record release, verify their identity and access their diagnostic imaging entirely electronically, saving time after the appointment typically spent by patients waiting for a CD to take to their physician.
Once patients receive access, their imaging history from all Unique Imaging locations is stored permanently in their account for future access. If they wish to share with their specialist or another healthcare facility, they can share their diagnostic-quality (DICOM) imaging via email, fax, printing off a page with a secure link, or even burning their own CD directly from their account.
Meanwhile, their physicians can view the imaging shared with them using a powerful, FDA-certified viewer right from their web browser, without any software required.
Cathy Fara, CEO of Unique Imaging, says the partnership was truly about delivering better patient care: “As one of South Florida’s leading imaging centers, we are always looking to improve the patient experience, while streamlining our own internal workflow. PocketHealth helps patients gain access to their diagnostic imaging and results without waiting for a CD after their appointment, and helps our specialist community more easily access their patients’ records.”
Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO of PocketHealth, added: “We’re thrilled about the opportunity to enable the Unique Imaging team to remove CDs from their workflow, improve the flow of data to their referring physician community and help patients gain more meaningful control over their health records. We look forward to continuing to work with their dedicated team and growing our partnership over time.”
Unique Imaging joins over 500 other hospitals, clinics and mobile imaging sites across North America that have deployed the PocketHealth platform for their patients.
