Image Exchange – With Anyone

The most common way of sharing patient data between stakeholders – be they healthcare systems, insurance providers, or the patients themselves – has historically been via physical media: first written notes, then faxes, and ultimately CDs. But these are awful from a security, efficiency, and usability perspective. As a result, my colleagues and I are moving to a digital image exchange portal (IEP), which allows us to share images quickly and securely. All National Health Service (NHS) hospitals in the UK have a proven, trusted, and ubiquitous IEP network connecting them, so enabling secure digital exchange and access for all stakeholders over this platform was the logical choice. For instance, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, where I work, shares the care of its patients with other hospitals, so enabling patients to quickly access their scans and X-rays using the IEP with Anyone extension will allow other clinicians to plan better care for them.
