Intelerad Medical Systems (Raleigh, NC, USA), a leading provider of medical image management solutions, has acquired Ambra Health (New York, NY, USA), maker of a leading cloud-based medical image management suite, to create a global industry leader in cloud PACS and enterprise imaging.

Unifying two KLAS Research category leaders, the combined platform will provide physicians, patients and researchers a superior cloud solution for reading, storing and sharing diagnostic imaging. Along with Intelerad’s award-winning PACS, Ambra brings a robust cloud VNA, image exchange functionality, and research and pathology capabilities to the Intelerad portfolio. The new partnership between Intelerad and Ambra significantly expands the combined company’s ability to enable distributed radiology reading, collaborative care solutions and advanced life science research in multiple markets to improve the health of populations.

Ambra powers some of the largest health systems to dramatically improve imaging and collaborative care workflows with its highly intuitive and interoperable cloud platform. Ambra’s cloud-based platform empowers radiologists and other providers to share and view images in real-time without a VPN or CD, improving patient engagement, continuity of care, and interoperability. Intelerad’s deal with Ambra marks its fourth acquisition in 2021 and is part of the company’s growth strategy to provide customers the most scalable imaging platform in the world. Intelerad’s customers are already benefiting from its expanded suite of solutions, unmatched flexibility, and increased support which will enable them to drive clinical efficiency and focus on providing enhanced patient care.

“The ultimate goal of healthcare is for human beings to live longer, healthier lives. Medical imaging and advanced technology is critical to this goal, and this acquisition positions Intelerad to enhance imaging accessibility and empower healthcare providers with the tools they need to deliver better patient outcomes,” said Mike Lipps, Intelerad Chief Executive Officer. “For healthcare providers, moving to the cloud is not a matter of if, but when. Partnering with Ambra is a significant milestone on our path to provide the most scalable and robust medical image management platform in the industry. And while many medical imaging vendors offer pieces of what providers need, Intelerad now offers the entire solution.”

“Ambra has been focused on ensuring large hospital systems, medical groups, imaging centers, clinical research organizations, and health information exchanges can rely on us to significantly improve processes and workflows in the circle of care,” said Morris Panner, CEO, Ambra. “This commitment is strengthened by joining Intelerad, and we look forward together to further enhance our products and services.”
