MIM software, the makers of the first FDA approved radiology viewing app for physicians, Mobile MIM, just released a medical imaging app aimed directly at patients, and a new cloud service called MIMCloud 2.0, enabling medical imaging to be readily stored and shared securely via a cloud service.
VueMe, the latest offering by MIM software, allows patients to store and share their medical images on the cloud, and interfaces with the physician centered FDA approved Mobile MIM app. The app uses MIMCloud 2.0, a cloud based service that stories all the radiology images — the MIMCloud 2.0 service facilitates exchange of the images from physicians to patients, and vice versa.
Patients can use VueMe and share their images with other physicians who use the MIMCloud 2.0. Instead of a patient having to take a manilla folder or CD with radiology results — they can use a cloud service to store their images, and beam them to other specialists who might not have immediate access to their medical imaging.
Imagine how much easier this will make things for us as patients. As a self-declared technophobe who doesn’t text and still has an “old fashioned” cell phone that is only really good for actually making phone calls, it does make me wonder if perhaps this “smart phone thingy” might be something I should consider…
