Carestream Health’s MyVue patient portal equips patients with secure online access to their medical imaging exams and radiology reports. If patients choose to seek a second opinion, they can quickly and easily share these records with selected physicians or specialists.

The patient portal can be accessed from Web-enabled devices such as the iPad. It is also very easy to use, which is evidenced by the high engagement rate.

In addition to providing greater convenience for patients, being able to share imaging studies online also has the potential to reduce the need for duplicate imaging exams. The portal can also trim costs for healthcare providers by helping to eliminate the equipment, personnel and mailing costs related to both data output onto CD/DVDs and possibly reduce the need to input data from CDs/DVDs.

The MyVue portal is currently in trade trial and is scheduled to be available in February or March 2013.
