Life Image, a global network for sharing clinical and imaging data, announced a new partnership with Dicom Systems, a provider of enterprise imaging interoperability, and workflows, to accelerate interoperability within and across provider organizations and health systems.
Benefits of Partnership
This new engagement between the two imaging companies is a rarity in the healthcare industry, which does not typically see close alliances in shared solution categories. The collaboration will combine the companies’ proven interoperability expertise to meet the healthcare industry’s growing demand for a comprehensive network that facilitates accessing, sharing, and storing all clinical data across a patient’s journey.
As part of the agreement, Life Image will offer Unifer as part of the Life Image Interoperability Suite to its growing network of academic medical centers and other leading hospitals across the country. In this new engagement, Dicom Systems and Life Image will apply their combined deep interoperability expertise to meet the industry’s growing demand for a comprehensive network that facilitates accessing, sharing, and storing all clinical data across a patient’s journey.
Life Image’s Interoperability Suite, which integrates into existing workflows, orchestrates the flow of more than 10 million clinical encounters per month, connecting 1,500 U.S. facilities, 8,000 affiliated sites, 150,000 U.S. providers, and 58,000 global clinics with a broader ecosystem of patients, life sciences, medical device companies, and telehealth companies.
“Dicom Systems and Life Image share a longstanding commitment to achieving seamless interoperability in an industry plagued by technical and institutional barriers to the free flow of compatible data,” said Dmitriy Tochilnik, President and CTO, Dicom Systems. “Together with Life Image, we will be able to address internal and external compatibility within a single healthcare organization, and fast, accurate, and secure information-sharing across organizations. This allows deeper and wider connections throughout the ecosystem to accelerate the development of the broadest network for medical information access.
