StL Diagnostic Imaging Eliminates CDs for Image Transfer by Implementing PocketHealth

STL diagnostic imaging eliminates CDs with PocketHealth

Burlington, ON July 21, 2021 — PocketHealth, developer of healthcare’s most unique digital image sharing technology, announced today that StL Diagnostic Imaging has expanded its use of the platform to share images with other healthcare providers.

StL Diagnostic Imaging provides clinic and mobile ultrasound and x-ray services throughout Ontario, with particular focus on the elderly population. As the premier mobile imaging service in Canada, StL prides itself on delivering essential diagnostic care to over 400 facilities including long term care, retirement and independent living facilities, mental health and rehabilitation facilities, private residences, correctional institutions, and hospitals.

PocketHealth gives healthcare providers the ability to share diagnostic images with other facilities, physicians and patients through an easy-to-use online experience. Used by over 500 healthcare facilities ranging from imaging clinics to community hospitals and 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.

As one of PocketHealth’s earliest adopters, StL implemented the platform to provide diagnostic images and reports directly to patients. The service delivered an exemplary patient experience and now StL will expand use of the platform to share imaging directly with its referring community, and completely eliminate the use of CDs. 

“StL Diagnostic Imaging’s mobile services eliminate the cost and stress of going to a hospital, and PocketHealth streamlines the process even further through digital transfer of images,” said Jean Costley of StL Diagnostic Imaging. “Since launching PocketHealth we have completely stopped burning CDs and no longer even stock them in our offices!” 

“StL Diagnostic Imaging provides unique mobile radiological services and we applaud their commitment to make the entire process seamless from start to finish,” said Rishi Nayyar, Co-Founder and CEO of PocketHealth. “StL is setting the standard for a truly digital healthcare experience that empowers patients, supports clinicians and improves operations.”
