A new iOS app offers patients and healthcare providers an intuitive image viewing experience designed for mobile viewing.

The Ambra Health (New York, NY, USA) app offers healthcare providers a secure, intuitive image viewing experience, fully optimized for mobile viewing. Users can effortlessly view medical images from anywhere, scroll through a series, and utilize radiology tools such as zooming, pinching, and rotating, all from the palm of their hand. While not intended for diagnostic use, imaging can be securely shared directly from within the app to other physicians, administrators, and patients, providing enhanced communication and collaboration.

Users benefit from instantaneous access to current and prior images in study lists with zero loading time. The Ambra Health app supports all imaging types from any connected picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), computed radiography (CR), and ultrasound. More than 1,500 organizations currently use the Ambra Health image exchange network, and more than four billion images are managed through the platform. The Ambra Health app is available on the iTunes store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ambra/id1437945158?mt=8).

“Patient medical records are complex documents, and medical imaging is a particularly critical piece of the puzzle. The cloud has been a key technological innovation for the storage of large imaging sets and easy access for patients and providers alike,” said Morris Panner, CEO of Ambra Health. “The Ambra app offers a quick and intuitive way for physicians to access medical images anytime, anywhere, and also enables providers to image enable patient and referring physician digital health apps.”

“With the Ambra app, I'm able to view a patient's imaging and scroll through priors instantaneously. The app is really intuitive and as easy as viewing images in my office. I've also gained the capability to share imaging with other providers in a secure manner,” said Todd Lempert, MD, chief of interventional radiology and diagnostic neuroradiology at Mission Hospital (Laguna Beach, CA, USA). “I can provide context immediately without having to wait for the images to load on my computer or run back to the office.”
