Drchrono EHR Partners With Ambra Health for Medical Imaging Access

March 14, 2018 — drchrono Inc. announced a new partnership with Ambra Health to give physicians and radiologists direct access to medical imaging within their electronic health record (EHR) at the 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition, March 5-9 in Las Vegas.

drchrono’s integration with Ambra Health eliminates jumping between DICOM medical imaging software and electronic health records. Physicians and radiologists benefit from a more efficient workflow by placing a radiology request and then having the incoming medical images, including DICOM images, viewable in one destination within the drchrono EHR. Imaging is exported and uploaded directly from the device to the cloud, placing the images right into the patient's health record via the Ambra Health integration. Ambra’s cloud-based picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and image management platform integrated with drchrono can process all DICOM modalities including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), computed radiography (CR), ultrasound and mammography (MG). Non-DICOM imaging can be stored side-by-side with DICOM for a holistic view of all patient imaging.

“As a physician, it’s exciting to be able to merge a flexible, mobile EMR platform with a cloud-based imaging system and have your full practice and all relevant patient information and images at your fingertips wherever you are working, whether it’s on an iPad or desktop,” said Nicholas R. Beatty, DO, RMSK, of Regenerative Sportscare Institute. “I have already noticed improved efficiencies at our practice and can completely focus on patient care and education instead of wasting time juggling multiple systems to access information or wait for CDs to come in for a more complete view of my patient.”

The Ambra and drchrono integration offers significant efficiency and patient care improvement to both care providers and patients. Doctors can place imaging orders, receive and view the results directly in the patient chart, all from within the drchrono EHR on iPad, iPhone or computer anytime, anywhere. Patient images can also be accessed for measurement, annotation and comparison in the Ambra Diagnostic Viewer. In addition, patients can provide medical images on CD to admissions or check-in staff to easily upload prior imaging so they are available even before seeing the physician.
