NEW YORK and MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Evidentia Health Inc. and DICOM Grid, makers of the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite, today announced a partnership that will allow the integration of medical images housed on the DICOM Grid platform into Evidentia Enhanced Diagnostic Reports.  Customers will have the capability to view diagnostic images, including large and complex files, in line with their report, with integrated patient education and provider communication tools, without any complicated software installations and will let patients and providers upload and download studies with ease. 

Dr. Jeremy Friese, Founder and Chairman of Evidentia Health Inc, said, " DICOM Grid's next generation image management suite has pioneered image exchange in the Cloud.  The flexibility and scalability of the solution makes them an ideal partner in this growing market. The integration of medical images and viewing tools from the DICOM Grid cloud into our interactive diagnostic reporting platform will allow for enhanced communication among physicians, referring providers, and patients alike."

"Providers today are seeking innovative technology solutions to share medical history and communicate with patients. We are now far past the "appointment reminder" solutions. Physicians want to safely share diagnostic imaging like CTs and MRIs and reporting," says Morris Panner, CEO of DICOM Grid.  Evidentia Reports provide a solution for sharing complex radiology reports with patients. In partnership with DICOM Grid, the platform will be able to incorporate diagnostic imaging allowing patients to have enhanced control over their own health."

Diagnostic imaging and the associated reports are even more important for patients managing complex conditions. Using tools like Evidentia Reports, patients with complex conditions can now more efficiently manage data and communications electronically, and clinicians can share information with far-flung patient care teams to ensure wider access to vital medical histories.
