Ambra Health Overview

What is Ambra Health?

Ambra is a medical data and image management suite with features for image storage, exchange, viewing, and EHR integration. The scalable and interoperable Ambra cloud platform is designed to serve healthcare providers, from large health systems to small private practices, as well as radiology practices, subspecialty practices and clinical research organizations to improve imaging and collaboration.

Ambra allows efficient image exchange among providers, departments and patients. Organizations are able to automate workflows and digitally route images for diagnostic viewing anywhere, anytime, along with contextual access to imaging and reporting data within EHR and RIS. The platform enables medical image uploads from a variety of sources. Admissions staff can use the one-click CD uploader, or automatically upload imaging directly from the EHR. The Ambra web uploader enables instant ad hoc transfers, and patients can upload prior imaging from home via the online patient portal.

Ambra’s secure cloud based storage allows users to keep all imaging within a single repository, and automatically purge data that has exceeded its legal retention period based on configurable retention rules. Users can store and retrieve various file formats including JPEG, TFF, DOC, and more. The universal viewer can be integrated with single sign-on and provides physicians with access to patient images from any PC, Mac, or tablet to make annotations, compare images, and more.

Ambra can be customized to fit specific trial needs by creating custom fields for the image upload process, and custom routing rules based on the demands of the trial. Downloadable detailed reports include important data such as when a new timepoint is updated, viewed, created, or shared with another organization for complete transparency. Ambra’s second opinion portal allows prospective patients to upload medical images and associated reports to instantly provide images for evaluation. Additional features are provided for trauma transfer, telestroke and radiology, and a patient aware network.

Awesome Ambra!


David H.

Amazing flexibilty and easy to use software

From the get-go, we were able to schedule calls and diagram what we wanted to do and they just hit the ground running. The project managers are very well versed in the application and were able to give us a great direction while implementing Ambra in our hospital. Whenever I do image exchange with another hospital, I recommend they change vendors.

Ambra Health User Review

There are other things I did not like, but I cannot think of at the moment, as they were problems that came about as I was sending. Different occurrences on different days. Also I am a new employee to my company and we only started using Ambra more recently. There is a lack of reference/guidance on processes, procedures, and trouble shooting. Seems like everything comes with a price. What happens if its not our fault that the other provider isn't receiving? We have to get charged every time just to resend. Healthcare should be about quality care and not revenue. How can we afford to provide the best care to our patients if we can't afford to keep using a program that will safeguard their rights and information? Ambra has the potential to be great, but user functionality and costs need improvement. Not a lot of other providers have software that are up to date with ambra and cannot use it.

SOFTWARE THAT PROVIDES MANY SOLUTIONS SUCCESSFULLY

Ambra (aka DICOM GRID) has always been very pleasant to work with over these past (close to) 10 years. They have not 'nickel and dimed' us for every improvement/request like many vendors (GE for example) do.

Awesome Ambra!

Pros

The features and functionality of the Ambra product is outstanding. We use the system in three distinct ways - 1) sharing images to, receiving images from, and bi-directional sharing with our partners, 2) providing online access to images and reports for our referring community and patients, and 3) supporting our business of providing radiology reads for family practice, urgent care, chiropratic and other imaging providers without a radiologist on staff. These three features, or capabilities, go well beyond the VNA aspect of the product. It's so powerful that the VNA is almost an afterthought to how you'll use it.

Cons

There is a learning curve to this vast product and some of the terminology is new or different from the imaging industry standard. Don't let that shy you away from engaging with Ambra. It's well worth the effort.

Whenever I do image exchange with another hospital, I recommend they change vendors.

Pros

Out of all the image exchange companies out there Ambra is by far the easiest to set up and use. Not only did we just give them a list of frequent customers that we exchange images with often and they took care of installing the software and creating bi-directional image exchange, but, they also were able to provide a solution for our teleradiology customers even building interfaces for HL7.

Cons

There isn't much I don't like. They are easy to reach for support and have a very knowledgeable support desk.

Pros

I like that the software is secure and we can attach pdf documents with the radiographs.

Cons

Some of the functionality, the steps that I have to take just to get to the radiographs that I want to send. The format or options that are available to us to send to recipients. I don't like how we can't track what was sent. I also don't think it's fair that there is a cost for every item that we send.

Pros

1. Aids patients/care givers in providing their exams with other institutions/care givers. 2. Patients are no longer dependent on CDs. 3. Patients take more control of their healthcare needs by being able to view, share and download their own exams

Cons

appears to be too dependent on bandwidth for image viewing. Increased/efficient compression algorithms would be nice to facilitate the speed of download and viewing.

Pros

The log in process is simple thanks to linkage with my company's log in process

Cons

ALL x rays should be readily reviewable when one is pulled up on the software. Currently, to look at old xrays, one has to back out of current study and then find older study with new search. VERY INCONVENIENT,
