Electronic Image Exchange with Other Medical Facilities

UW Health ImageShare is a free service designed to expedite image sharing between UW Health and partnering organizations for the purpose of coordinating patient care. A site-to-site VPN (virtual private network) is established that allows for fast and secure two-way exchange of DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) images. By expediting image transfers, this service facilitates more efficient patient care for both organizations.
