Overview

Seamless, secure image sharing with partner organizations

ImageShare is a complimentary service designed to quickly allow image sharing between UW Health and our partner organizations through secure network links. This fast and secure exchange of DICOM images eliminates patient care delays not only during routine appointments but in the event of a trauma/ER transfer, Telestroke case or urgent vascular surgery review.
