GaHIN has executed the contract with Ambra Health, a leader in medical data and image management, to provide our members with medical imaging exchange. Ambra’s cloud solution with its web-based interface will allow providers to store, exchange and transmit medical images.
The Ambra DICOM viewer is web-based, giving providers access to images from anywhere, using any web browser. The viewer includes tools for annotating imaging studies as well as a built-in meeting tool for real-time collaboration with other physicians.
Medical images are difficult to transmit electronically due to their large size. The traditional – and still current method – is to send a CD or give it to a patient to carry with them to the provider.
GaHIN is seeking members who would like to participate in the initial beta phase of the project, with full rollout to members expected by the end of the year.
