A cloud-based medical image management and exchange platform received a $6 million in funding from the Mayo Clinic and a host of others.
 
The Phoenix-based company promotes an image sharing, exchange, and storage product that operates in the cloud. It plans on using its latest funding to integrate with electronic health record (EHR) and radiology information system (RIS) providers. 
 
Joining Mayo in investing in DICOM Grid is Canaan Partners, CHL Medical Partners, and a few others. Thus far, the company has received more than $30 million in funding. The company has several prominent customers already including Mayo, Rush University Medical Center, Greater Houston Healthconnect, Baptist Health South Florida, Memorial Hermann Health System, and others. 
 
"Being able to electronically retrieve prior imaging will mean providers can make more informed treatment decisions and help to eliminate unnecessary duplicative tests, which are often not reimbursable. We believe this will save dollars and reduce radiation exposure for patients," Phil Beckett, Ph.D., Healthconnect’s Acting CEO and Chief Technology Officer, said in a statement.
