El Paso, TX, May 19, 2021 — Developer of healthcare’s most unique electronic image sharing technology, PocketHealth announced today that Desert Imaging will deploy its platform to share diagnostic images between patients and physicians. PocketHealth will help Desert Imaging establish a modern digital healthcare strategy that streamlines workflow and improves the patient care experience.

PocketHealth is a diagnostic image sharing platform that gives healthcare providers the ability to share diagnostic images with patients, physicians and other healthcare organizations through an easy-to-use online experience. Used at over 500 healthcare facilities ranging from imaging centers and community hospitals to multi-site health systems, PocketHealth creates an infrastructure that enables healthcare providers to send and receive imaging records without the use of networks or CDs.
“We chose PocketHealth to help with our digital image sharing strategy because they understand the impact to both patients and physicians,” said Raul Arizpe, President of Desert Imaging. “The days of CDs are over, and we look forward to eliminating the tedious process of retrieving and burning images to disk followed by manual delivery processes. This will provide a faster, safer, and more convenient experience to our patients and our referring community.”
“It’s inspiring to work with organizations like Desert Imaging who recognize the need for updated, modern strategies,” said Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO of PocketHealth. “We’re excited to work with Desert Imaging to help them eliminate CDs from their image sharing workflow and become leaders in digital healthcare innovation.”
