NEW YORK, May 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Ambra Health, makers of the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite, today announced its support of a campaign to eliminate the usage of CDs for medical image exchange throughout healthcare. The campaign called, #DitchTheDisk, highlights the high costs, wasted time, and negative impacts on patient care attributed to CDs.
Ambra’s support of the campaign includes a website and content to help healthcare leaders, administrators, and IT professionals understand the impact and the costs of CDs for both their bottom line and their patients’ outcomes. The site includes a CD cost calculator and new eBook which detail the reasons why CDs are a burden and how leading facilities across the country have eliminated them.
Ambra Health has seen healthcare organizations of all types switch to its cloud platform for image exchange and storage. From January of 2019 through today, Ambra has added 57 new customers, bringing its total to over 450 customers and 6 billion images under management.
“CDs are a dead mode of transfer in technology,” said Morris Panner, CEO of Ambra Health. “The healthcare system of today will ask a patient with broken ribs to drive and pick up their CD at the hospital and take it to their referring physician appointment. We must do better, and we can. The technology exists for secure image transfer in the cloud.”
Facilities can visit the #DitchTheDisk website to utilize these new resources on CD elimination. Those interested in learning more about Ambra Health’s imaging solutions can receive a live demo at Booth #507 during the upcoming SIIM 2019 conference. Ambra Health CEO, Morris Panner, will also be speaking on the panel, The Shift from Many PACS to One Enterprise PACS: Challenges on Wednesday, June 26 from 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm MDT in the Exhibit Hall Theater, Aurora Hall 2.
