Patient-centric, no-network medical image sharing platform PocketHealth announces the launch of Record Retrieval to solve challenges that hospitals and imaging centers face while requesting and retrieving prior imaging from patients, referring physicians, or healthcare sites.

Typically, hospitals and imaging centers are challenged with sourcing and retrieving prior imaging from multiple sources as part of the patient intake process, many of which are not secure, including CD-ROMs stored at a patient’s home, or mailed in from a provider site, VPNs or legacy image sharing networks. Waiting for the patient’s images to arrive, managing manual imports and cleaning incoming patient data leads to delays in treatment and adds costs, time and effort for administrative staff.

“Image sharing should be universal, and Record Retrieval accommodates every means for the provider to request patient imaging priors in a simple and effective way, without network and workflow limitations,” said Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO, PocketHealth.Involving the patient and keeping them informed in their healthcare journey is integral to PocketHealth as we build out our no-network solution that securely opens up provider and patient access to medical imaging.”

Nayyar will be speaking about Record Retrieval at the RSNA Annual Meeting on Tuesday, November 29th in the Innovation Theater (Booth 3316).

“Fast and convenient importing of imaging studies from outside hospitals is increasingly necessary for the timely delivery of excellent healthcare,” said Dr. Euan Zhang, Neuroradiologist at Hamilton Health Sciences. “PocketHealth Record Retrieval is significantly more efficient than what can be achieved by existing legacy systems and is now an indispensable part of my radiology practice.”

With Record Retrieval, imaging can be digitally requested and retrieved by email or fax and the provider or patient on the receiving end can upload them through a secure link in two simple steps.

PocketHealth will be exhibiting at the RSNA Annual Meeting this year in Booth 8012 (North Hall, Level 3). PocketHealth will also be participating in the IAIP Demo (AI Theater), showcasing its no-network and patient-centric solution in the diagnostic radiology workflow. To book a demo, visit
