medical image exchange

What is Medicai for real-time medical image sharing?

The Medical Image Exchange cloud solution from Medicai allows physicians and healthcare professionals to exchange, store, and access medical images, including X-rays, MRI scans, and CT scans, in a centralized and organized manner. This software enables efficient collaboration and communication among healthcare providers, regardless of location, by securely sharing patient data and images with authorized parties in real-time. Designed to comply with healthcare data privacy and security regulations, such as HIPAA, it ensures the confidentiality and protection of patient information. Ultimately, our medical image-sharing software facilitates faster diagnosis, improves patient care, and enhances communication among healthcare professionals, all of which benefits patient care coordination.

Key features of Medicai's solution for real-time image sharing

Secure sharing:

The cloud platform has advanced network security protocols in place to protect patient medical information and ensure compliance with privacy regulations, such as HIPAA.

Easy access:

Our medical image sharing platform is intuitive and easy to use, with a simple interface that allows health care professionals to easily upload, view, and share medical images, eliminating the hassles of CDs or the need to use any other classical physical media.

Medical image interoperability:

The platform is able to integrate with other health care systems existing on the network, such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs), Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), Radiology Information Systems (RIS), or other medical imaging apps.

Imaging workflow:

The platform provides tools that enable health care professionals and clinicians working in a hospital, medical facility, or healthcare network to collaborate and communicate with each other, such as messaging and adding comments and annotations to medical imaging records.

Direct cloud access:

Our medical image sharing solution uses cloud-based storage, which allows for fast, secure, and scalable storage of large medical image files, which can also be easily viewed with our integrated DICOM viewer through secure image portals (for both doctors and patients).

Mobile accessibility:

Our platform, with its DICOM viewer, is accessible from any device, including mobile devices, to facilitate remote access to medical images and data.

Improved patient care:

Our medical image sharing platform allows health care providers and doctors to easily and securely share medical images and other diagnostic information with each other. This can improve collaboration and communication among providers, leading to more accurate diagnoses and better treatment plans for patients.

Increased efficiency:

Our medical image sharing platform allows providers to access and share medical images quickly and easily, regardless of their location. This saves time and improves the efficiency of patient care, as providers can quickly access and review images to make important treatment decisions.

Cost savings:

Sharing medical images electronically reduces the need for repeat imaging tests, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Additionally, by eliminating the need to physically transport images between providers, medical image sharing platforms can help reduce costs associated with printing, shipping, and handling images.

Improved patient outcomes:

By enabling providers to share medical images more easily and collaborate more effectively, medical image sharing platforms help improve patient outcomes. Providers can work together to develop more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans, leading to better outcomes for patients.

How does it work?

A healthcare provider uploads medical images like X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs to the platform. Other authorized providers can access the images securely stored on the platform's servers.

Healthcare providers can access the uploaded images through the platform with a secure login. Providers can view and download the images, as well as any accompanying reports or notes.

Providers can also share images with other authorized providers, both within and outside their own organization. The platform securely facilitates this, implementing controls to restrict image access to only authorized providers.

Our medical image sharing platform includes features that allow providers to collaborate on patient care. Providers can leave comments or notes on the images, share their own images or reports, and consult with other providers to develop treatment plans.

Our medical image sharing platform is designed to be secure and HIPAA-compliant, ensuring that patient data is protected at all times. This includes using encryption to protect data in transit, as well as implementing access controls and auditing to ensure that only authorized providers are accessing the images.

Connect & Retrieve

Our multi-enterprise solution enables modern specialized practices to automatically receive imaging from their own PACS and modalities.

Store & Manage

Medicai's interoperable imaging infrastructure scales reliably with your practice's needs. All the studies, together with complementary files (reports, images, and videos), are stored in a secure and compliant way (HIPAA, GDPR).

Access & Visualize

Imaging data stored with Medicai can be shared in real time with:

  • Doctors from within the organization
  • Doctors from outside the organization
  • Patients, via the Medicai Patient Portal

Doctors and patients can access and view the imaging files with Medicai's DICOM Viewer, directly in the web portal or mobile apps.

They can also share their data with ease.

"Over the last 26 years I have been working as a physician in United States and I had the opportunity of using several different medical software platforms. I certify first hand that Medicai’s platform is robust and user friendly. Over the last year I have been using it succesfully both for the counseling of patients and their treating physicians during telemedicine consults, and for organizing multidisciplinary tumor boards."

Can MRI images be emailed?

Although it is technically possible, we generally recommend against emailing MRI images due to their large file sizes and potential security risks. Instead, it is safer to use secure, encrypted medical image sharing platforms like Medicai that comply with healthcare data protection regulations to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the images.

Can someone read my MRI online?

Yes, your MRI can be read online by radiologists using teleradiology services that include DICOM readers. These services enable the electronic transmission of images to a radiologist for remote review and interpretation, resulting in an online report that you or your healthcare provider can access.

What are the 4 types of medical imaging?

The four main types of medical imaging techniques are X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound. They all generate medical imaging information that can be accessed later by physicians, patients, and other imaging stakeholders as needed in the health information exchange process. Each type uses different technologies to create images of the inside of the body for different image sharing use cases, like helping in diagnosis and treatment planning. All these equipments generate images following the same standard, DICOM, which means Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine.

How do I share a radiology image?

To share a radiology image, you can use any secure digital platform designed for medical data transmission (image exchange solutions), like Medicai. Typically, these platforms necessitate users uploading images into a secure system that adheres to healthcare regulations such as HIPAA, safeguarding patient confidentiality, and granting access to authorized healthcare providers. Medicai also has a patient portal component where patients can view their own medical records, which improves the overall patient experience.
