Sending Patient Images to Michigan Medicine Using Secure Image Transfers

Michigan Medicine contracts with LifeIMAGE, a third-party image exchange network to transfer images electronically to Michigan Medicine. This system is both secure and HIPAA compliant. LifeIMAGE is able to receive standard DICOM image files, like those from Radiology and Cardiology PACS. Electronic image transfer saves time and can save lives.
