Benefits of the ImageShare Program

UW Health ImageShare is a complimentary service designed to expedite image sharing between UW Heath and partnering organizations.

 

Benefits of Electronic Image Sharing

  • Patients benefit by receiving streamlined care with less hassle
  • Physicians receive same day image review/consultation
  • The time and cost associated with disc and film transfer are eliminated
  • Data transfer is secure
  • Images can be transferred to UW Health 24/7

Applications When Image Share Might Be Used

  • Continuing Care - Images are available to the provider before the patient arrives for an appointment.
  • Trauma/ ER Transfer - The images can arrive at UW Health before the patient does.
  • Telestroke
  • Urgent Surgical Review
    • Urgent Surgical Review is a free service that is provided by the UW Vascular Surgery Department.
    • Once the images have been received, the UW Health Access Center will page the requested or on-call UW Vascular Surgeon and relay patient and study information.
