We help physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare focused organizations understand their market and engage people about their health and direct them to the appropriate resource. Call us today to start a 30-day free trial.


Our Advantage
Helping you achieve the access you need for a better healthcare future

"By taking advantage of existing resources, we are able to efficiently provide accurate, near real-time medical images to healthcare providers globally, providing them with the information they need to make informed patient care decisions in a timely fashion."

Traditionally only large medical centers were able to benefit from Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) while incurring high upfront and ongoing costs associated with hardware, software, licensing fees, implementation and support. Using a robust intelligent cloud based platform that is already fully integrated, we offer a seamless automation solution that makes complete PACS and RIS, image archiving and communications through a full array of advanced visualization tools- accessible anywhere, anytime.

Today’s medical environment demands efficient and cost-effective workflow providing access to healthcare professionals enabling them to make more informed patient care choices. Next generation web-based diagnostic imaging iCloud WebPACS provides an innovative way for medical images to be delivered and exchanged streamlining healthcare.

Our Offering
Improving Patient Communication

In record breaking speed, medical Imaging iCloud WebPACS supports the display and sophisticated maneuvering of medical images in full diagnostic resolution on any Internet-enabled PC or mobile digital device. By drawing upon the supercomputing power of the cloud, data is processed remotely at server farms with high-speed processors enabling large amounts of information to be handled simultaneously making the system noticeably more powerful.

iCloud WebPACS
Medical Imaging Technology

A unique digital imaging turnkey solution for all modalities delivered as you need them

A full suite of image interpretations, management and billing tools that allow for fast and accurate diagnosis

A modest “per use” pay as you go fee structure providing fast access for users even in low bandwidth



Company E Mix


The Sender

Selects the exam and other desired documents to send from a worklist of electronically stored radiology files
Uploads the "package" to eMix
Selects a recipient from a list of authorized users (User authorization and authentication preserve privacy and confidentiality and strengthen compliance with HIPAA provisions)

The Recipient

Receives an email notification from eMix
Logs in
Clicks on the package link and chooses the desired action, such as previewing the images and reports or download and view the DICOM image exam and related reports using the free DICOM viewer.

How Healthcare Enterprises Benefit

Turn a cost center into revenues
Enhanced service to your healthcare community
Vendor neutral cloud-based solution, no IT management, no hardware cost, no software cost, and no custom interfaces
8-layer security and HIPAA compliance

Increased efficiency

eMix provides an easy method to exchange patient images and information with outside healthcare institutions and providers, and physicians. Users have the option to be automatically notified as soon as exam information is available. All uploaded and received patient exams can be accessed from a single portal in real time.
Vendor neutral solution

Our vendor neutral solution allows your users to view any DICOM-based exam information throughout your enterprise, regardless of its origin. eMix is 100% Web-based, eliminating the need to establish and maintain custom interfaces between facilities.

With eMix, there is no hardware or software to purchase, making it a cost-effective method to quickly receive your patients’ images and reports for viewing.
Lower costs while generating revenue

With no hardware or software to purchase, per exam distribution costs are substantially lower than conventional methods of burning CDs or printing film. Your facility can use eMix to generate revenue by collecting a fee from patients for exam distribution. eMix will refund a portion of the usage fee to your facility for each exam transmitted.


1. How long do the packages stay on the eMix server?

Currently, packages will stay on the eMix server available for download for 30 days.

2. What are the contents of the package?

You control the contents of the package. Any DICOM compatible image or printable document can be eMixed. Typically, a package will contain a single exam and the associated report. However, the package could contain additional documents related to the exam, or even multiple related exams and reports.

3. Are the images within the package compressed?

eMix does not apply compression or decompress images. Uncompressed images will be packaged as uncompressed. Compressed images will be packaged and transmitted at the compression level applied prior to upload.

4. Can I choose multiple recipients?

Currently eMix only allows a user to upload packages to one recipient at a time. This capability will be expanded in a later release of the eMix platform.

5. How many times am I billed if I send one package to multiple recipients?

As with traditional couriers such as UPS or FedEx, if you want to send a package to multiple recipients, you will be charged one transaction for each recipient.

6. How does the recipient without a PACS view the package contents?

The package contents can be viewed by the recipient with the eMix DICOM Viewer which is included in every package. The recipient has the option to download the package contents with or without the eMix Viewer

7. Who can request a patient’s exam?

A.) A patient may request his/her own exams be transmitted to themselves or to another healthcare institution/provider;

B.) A healthcare institution in the process of providing care to a patient and requiring anterior exams may request them for comparison purposes;

C.) A physician not affiliated with a healthcare institution may request a patient’s prior exams.

In each case a complete and duly executed patient consent form must be obtained from the patient, with the exception of cases when access to the patient’s prior exams are necessary in the course of providing care.

8. Can I download the package multiple times?

Yes, however the package will be purged after 30 days. If the package is needed beyond 30 days, the Sender will need to upload it again.

9. How is patient identification verified when a patient requests their exam?

Patient identification is verified at the time of the exam. If the patient desires to receive their exam images and results via eMix, they will sign appropriate release forms during the exam registration process and provide an email address where they want to receive the package.

10. How long does it take to send a package?

The recipient will be automatically notified via email when a package is available to download. Upload speed is dependent on the Sender’s network capability.

11. Are both uploads and downloads HTTPS?


Scenario 1
A patient recently examined at your healthcare institution has been admitted at an unaffiliated hospital out-of-state. The hospital is requesting the patient’s exam information. Your staff has to take the time to create and mail a CD of the exam to the hospital. Your institution absorbs the time and materials cost of creating and sending the CD. With eMix, the process of sending exam information is as simple and fast as sending an email, and at a much lower cost than the traditional method of distributing exams.

Scenario 2
A patient admitted into your hospital was recently examined at another healthcare institution. The institution is not a member of your hospital network, but the exam information is needed quickly for emergency care. If the exam information is not accessible, the medical imaging exams will need to be repeated. eMix eliminates the need to repeat scans by making exam images available at the speed and simplicity of email regardless of where they were acquired.
