Patient-centric medical imaging sharing reduces repeat studies
PHOENIX, Nov. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DICOM Grid, today announced the release of AccessMyImages.com, a Personal Health Record (PHR) for medical imaging. This allows the patient to have control of their diagnostic images and reports through a secure web application and eliminates the time and costs associated with generating imaging CDs or film.
Patients who have to access resources at multiple healthcare facilities can easily participate in their care, without concerns over transporting CDs or film. This enables better continuity of care at a lower cost for hospitals and healthcare chains.
"AccessMyImages.com provides patients with direct access to their imaging studies and reports and utilizes the IHE open standards architecture. Patients can share their study information with physicians or healthcare providers as easily as sending an email," said Morris Panner, CEO, DICOM Grid.
DICOM Grid will be demonstrating image sharing and additional image management capabilities at the RSNA 2011 conference in booth 1838 Lakeside Building, November 27th through December 1st and also at the IHE Image Sharing Demonstration, Hall A Booth 2851.
