lifeIMAGE offers cloud-based software that facilitates transferring, indexing, and searching for digital medical images to help prevent redundant patient exams. In addition to saving time and money, this can also reduce radiation exposure for patients. Moreover, a cloud-based service can help providers securely and automatically share results of imaging exams in the cloud. lifeIMAGE products include open application software interfaces for healthcare information technology companies to use to facilitate data exchange between health care providers.
