January 25, 2016 — lifeIMAGE announced that it was found to be the market leader in image exchange in a recent report from KLAS Enterprises Inc. The report, “Enterprise Imaging 2015: Strategies, Options and Vendor Performance,” was compiled through in-depth surveys with nearly 100 hospitals and health systems; 78 percent ranged in size from 200-1,000-plus beds, and 62 percent used electronic medical records from either Epic Systems Corp. or Cerner Corp.
Provider organizations of all sizes find that lifeIMAGE is able to meet their image exchange needs, wrote Monique Rasband, author of “Enterprise Imaging 2015.” According to one hospital executive quoted in the report, “lifeIMAGE is good for us ... because of their early installs and their experience with academic sites,” referencing the scalability of lifeIMAGE for small and large organizations.
The report also showed that health systems are using image sharing across many specialties. In commentary offered by health systems in the report, another provider remarked, “We really like lifeIMAGE . . . We are able to view an image of the stroke protocol from anywhere and determine if a patient needs to be treated right away.”
lifeIMAGE offers a comprehensive approach to enterprise image sharing: onsite image exchange network capabilities within a health system’s network integrated with vendor-neutral cloud capabilities for sharing globally. Image sharing is essential for diagnosis and treatment by all specialties, including cardiology, oncology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, radiology and burn care. At an increasing rate, large U.S. health systems are providing image sharing access to all clinicians and patients.
lifeIMAGE also makes it possible for patients to access exams by promoting standards-based personal health record (PHR) applications.
