August 6, 2012 — PACSGear, a provider of imaging connectivity for electronic health records (EHR), announced an agreement with eMix, a cloud-based virtualized electronic medical information exchange, to participate in the Open Image Exchange, a cloud-based network designed to securely share medical images and information. PACSGear will incorporate the application programming interface (API) from eMix to upload images and reports for cloud-based sharing and storage.
“We are pleased to have eMix join the network,” said PACSGear CEO Eli Rapaich. “The success of the Open Image Exchange continues to be based on incorporating open APIs, which improves access to medical images and other health information.”
“Being part of the Open Image Exchange improves access between healthcare institutions, physicians and patients,” said Florent Saint-Clair, eMix general manager. “Our anytime, anywhere approach to securely sending patient information with eMix has now been adopted by over 450 customers. Open Image Exchange broadens our ability to connect with even great numbers of customers.”
