BOCA RATON, Fla. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specialty-specific health information technology leader, Modernizing Medicine, Inc., and Ambra Health, makers of the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite, today announced a collaboration to enhance the orthopedics specific electronic health record (EHR) system, EMA, with advanced PACS connectivity.
Orthopedic surgeons can gain direct connectivity between EMA and their images from almost any PACS system. By easily uploading and sharing images in real time and exchanging images with other providers through automated bi-directional routing, orthopedic surgeons can experience faster turnaround of studies, eliminate reliance on CDs or DVDs for image sharing, reduce manual effort and gain a better overall experience for patients.
Ambra’s cloud-based PACS and image management platform interfaced with EMA can handle all DICOM modalities including MR, CT, PET, CR, US, and MG. Non-DICOM imaging can be stored side-by-side with DICOM for a holistic view of patient imaging. And the Ambra zero-footprint, HTML5 Viewer can be used through the web— freeing practices to access images from almost anywhere.
“Modernizing Medicine and Ambra share the goal to provide easy to use healthcare technology to help physicians focus on patient care,” shares Jason Weisstein, MD, MPH, medical director of orthopedics at Modernizing Medicine. “As a practicing orthopedic surgeon and developer of an orthopedic-specific EHR system, I feel that the relationship between EMA and Ambra will enhance patient care, provider satisfaction with imaging capabilities, and save us time, especially facilitating work among offices, ASCs and hospitals.”
“Healthcare providers who utilize the Ambra platform can see new procedure revenue and increased patient flow to their centers of excellence,” added Andrew Duckworth, VP of Business Development at Ambra Health. “This helps solve two major pain points in the healthcare industry: improved patient access and lowering costs. EMA and Ambra can help providers to streamline processes and optimize staff time while improving their image management strategy.”
