Cobalt Imaging Center is a medical charity that provides state of the art imaging for a large population in Southwest England. The facility recently adopted Carestream’s MyVue patient portal to enable patients’ immediate, secure access to their medical images via the web. Peter Sharp and Roisin Dobbins-Stacey of Cobalt Imaging spoke with us at RSNA and emphasized the need for a patient portal over CDs–their current means of sharing patient images—which are costly and timely.

Patients want access to their images now and a patient portal allows them instant access at their fingertips to share with whoever they want whether it’s the referring physician, or friends and family. The facility will slowly roll out MyVue and get patients adapted to a timely, functional, and secure way of sharing medical images.
