Ambra Health Launches Mobile App for Instant Medical Image Access

November 9, 2018 — Ambra Health announced the launch of its first iOS mobile app for healthcare providers and patient access. Designed with accessibility and ease of viewing in mind, the new Ambra Health app offers healthcare providers an intuitive image viewing experience, fully optimized for mobile viewing, according to the company.

Once securely logged in to the app, users benefit from instantaneous access to current and prior images in study lists with zero loading time. Users can view imaging from anywhere, scroll through a series, and utilize radiology tooling like zooming, pinching and rotating all from the palm of their hand. The Ambra app supports all imaging types from any connected picture archiving and communication system (PACS), including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), computed radiography (CR), ultrasound (US) and mammography (MG). While not intended for diagnostic use, imaging can be securely shared directly from within the app to other physicians, administrators, and patients for enhanced communication and collaboration.  

The Ambra app, which was developed in close collaboration with providers, allows physicians to access imaging on the go and communicate securely with other physicians and even patients. "With the Ambra app, I'm able to view a patient's imaging and scroll through priors instantaneously. The app is really intuitive and as easy as viewing images in my office," said Todd Lempert, M.D., CEO, Coast Radiology and chief, interventional radiology and diagnostic neuroradiology, Mission Hospital, Laguna Beach, Calif. "I've also gained the capability to share imaging with other providers in a secure manner from anywhere. I can provide context immediately without having to wait for the images to load on my computer or run back to the office."

Providers can download the app by visiting the Apple App Store here.
