Medical Imaging App for Patients Available on iPad, iPhone and iPod
June 7, 2011 – MIM Software Inc., a global provider of medical imaging software, announced the VueMe App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. This new app, designed specifically for patient use, allows patients to view diagnostic images sent to them from their doctors, and to share these images, if needed, with specialists. The launch of VueMe comes on the heels of Mobile MIM, MIM Software's original remote diagnostic imaging app for physicians.
Along with VueMe, MIM Software has also just released MIMcloud 2.0. MIMcloud is an Internet-based service that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of both VueMe and Mobile MIM users. When using MIMcloud, all data is transferred and stored using secure encryption to ensure complete patient privacy.
The combination of the VueMe App and MIMcloud provides a simple and inexpensive way for patients to control their medical images. Patients have the right to request copies of their X-rays and other scans on a CD. The DICOM files can then be easily uploaded and transmitted to an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch using the free MIMcloud software. The first three imaging study uploads are free, after which a MIMcloud account will be charged $1 for each additional study.
Data transfers are also possible without MIMcloud, thanks to VueMe’s Breeze feature. Patients can initiate secure and instant transfers of their image data directly to another iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, whether it’s to a physician with the Mobile MIM App, or to a family member also using the VueMe App.
The VueMe App is available for free from the App Store on the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore/
