Ambra Health and drchrono Partner Giving Physicians & Radiologists Instant Access to Patient Medical Images within EHR
Sunnyvale, CA and NEW YORK – March 5, 2018 — Ambra Health, makers of the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite and drchrono Inc., the company enabling the medical practice of the future today announced a new partnership to give physicians and radiologists direct access to medical imaging within their electronic health record (EHR).
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 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 PACS and image management platform integrated with drchrono can process all DICOM modalities including MR, CT, PET, CR, US, and 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 Dr. Nicholas R. Beatty 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.”
How it Works
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.
“As a mobile EHR focused on tech advancements for medical practices, we are committed to creating a seamless experience for both patients and doctors,” said Daniel Kivatinos, co-founder and COO of drchrono. “By integrating with Ambra Health, important patient images, such as X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans are now automatically included in the patient record, making it simpler for physicians to view everything in one place while treating their patient. This is an important step in giving both patients and doctors all of the relevant information they need right at their fingertips in one consolidated place.”
“Both drchrono and Ambra Health provide cloud-based platforms that make it simple and secure for healthcare providers to instantly access important patient information and history,” said Andrew Duckworth, VP of Business Development at Ambra Health. “By image-enabling the drchrono EHR through this partnership, physicians and radiologists can spend more time on what matters most: patient care. We are excited to begin rolling this integrated solution out to thousands of medical practices already using drchrono’s mobile EHR platform.”
