NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today from HIMSS17, Ambra Health, makers of the leading cloud-based, medical image management suite, announced the launch of Ambra for Developers, a cloud development platform for medical imaging. Built around modern, RESTful web-services, this is the first cloud development platform designed specifically for medical imaging.
With these new APIs, IT departments at health systems and hospitals can easily extend imaging and imaging data into other applications such as population health or reporting tools. In addition, third-party developers can rapidly incorporate Ambra imaging technologies as part of a wide variety of healthcare applications, providing users with new capabilities for better patient care. The Ambra Solution Directory showcases 15 of these next-generation solutions for easy evaluation by providers, including Elsevier STATdx®, Realize Ai, USARAD, Blackford Analysis and READS for RADS.
Memorial Hermann, the largest integrated delivery network (IDN) in Texas with over 250 regional locations, is just one example of an innovative health system utilizing the Ambra development platform to customize and extend imaging data across other applications. The Ambra developer tools and APIs are helping Memorial Hermann image-enable their Allscripts, eClinicalWorks and Cerner Electronic Health Record (EHR) applications, allowing users to access imaging data natively in these solutions with Ambra serving as a universal viewer. Custom data extractions are also automated for Memorial Hermann using the Ambra development platform, allowing for detailed analytics on all aspects of their imaging data, which grows by 80-100 terabytes each year.
"The Ambra cloud development platform is a natural next step in the evolution of Ambra imaging services," said Morris Panner, CEO of Ambra Health. "Imaging doesn't live in a silo and needs to be closely coupled with other applications in the care continuum. Now, providers and other third parties can build from our best-in-class, open system, to create new solutions that provide better, more efficient patient care," he added.
Many forward-thinking partners are leveraging Ambra's cloud development platform to facilitate solutions around deep learning, diagnostic decision support, teleradiology, specialized image analysis and second opinion portals. Ambra for Developers enables partners to seamlessly incorporate Ambra's award-winning image management solutions into their application architecture faster. Some examples include:
The complete list of companies highlighted in the Ambra Solution Directory at launch include: Blackford Analysis, DiaCardio, Elsevier, Health Companion, MR Innovations, Olea Medical, Precision Image Analysis, Predible, READS for RADS, Realize, SemanticMD, TOMTEC, USARAD Holdings and Virtual Scalpel.
The launch of Ambra for Developers and the Ambra Solution Directory are part of the company's continued rapid product development and accelerated growth. Ambra Health was recently named the leader for medical image exchange solutions by KLAS for the third year in a row. More than 750 healthcare providers share images using the Ambra network today, resulting in over 750,000 user logins per month from across more than 50 countries worldwide, an astounding growth of 500% year-over-year.
