The largest worldwide healthcare Software as a Service (SaaS) company, DICOM Health, that produces a digital cloud-based digital software suite for managing medical images, has changed its name to Ambra Health.

Ambra Health’s cloud-based SaaS medical image management solutions optimize patient care, reduce costs and facilitate sharing of medical images across the care cycle, and network, for patients, medical facilities, and care providers.

Ambra Health (Phoenix, Arizona, USA) enables image sharing between modalities and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), cloud storage in Vendor Neutral Archives (VNA), transfer of CD/DVD content, mobile viewing and dedicated portals, and worklist management for images and reports. The solution uses a patented technology to ensure secure communications.

Ambra has also launched an advisory series of events, beginning at the end of September 2016 and focused on innovation in medical imaging technology. The events are intended to help healthcare leaders define their own medical image management strategy taking into account new trends in digital health technology.

CEO of Ambra Health, Morris Panner, said, "Medical imaging is undergoing a transformation well beyond its beginnings in DICOM-based x-rays, CT, MRI and the like," said "Non-DICOM imaging and other large dataset of medical information are emerging at the same time that healthcare networks are expanding at a rapid pace, making what happens to a patient outside the hospital as important as what happens inside the hospital. Both these drivers call for innovation in medical data and image management and play a key part in our product vision, which is why we felt the time was right to change our name from DICOM Grid to Ambra Health as we help usher in your medical imaging cloud for the future of healthcare."
