Trice Imaging, Inc. Announces Mobile ultrasound business sending images via mobile networks

Trice Imaging, Inc. announced today that Precision Ultrasound Imaging, Inc.,a provider of mobile ultrasound services has transitioned to Trice Imaging Inc. technology.

Trice Imaging, which offers a web-based, medical image routing platform that mobilizes DICOM information from medical imaging equipment to any mobile communication device such as cell phones and tablets within seconds, has revolutionized the way medical images are being converted, shared, and stored by medical professionals and patients across six global markets. The solution gives physicians the ability to share images with their patients and colleagues for fast and cost effective referrals and consultations.

Precision Ultrasound performs medical imaging services at elderly home facilities and prisons. The company visits facilities with their mobile clinic, equipped with portable x-rays and ultrasound equipment.. Prior to using Trice Imaging’s services, their reading physicians would receive hand delivered cardiac studies on CD to review. This process was both costly and time consuming. Trice enables their imaging systems to send data to their reading physicians through a MiFi connection from the mobile network, regardless of where the exam is being performed. By using the Tricefy™ service, Precision Ultrasound can provide better quality of care at a significantly lower cost.

“By using new technology I lower my cost and speed up my processes”, says Melissa Kelley, RT RDMS RVT,  founder and CEO of Precision Ultrasound Imaging. “I deliver images to multiple interpreting physicians and I see the ROI on gas savings alone. This provides instant access for referring physicians immediately. For me this opens up new business opportunities by providing fast diagnosis for patients that would not normaly get that access.” It also leads to cost savings the patient as well as Medicare, Medicaid, and insurance companies.

“We are very pleased to have Precision Ultrasound Imaging as our customer. They are a great show-case for what we believe in. Patients should have fast access to medical diagnostic expertise regardless of where the exam is performed.  We feel that our technolgogy can really be a game changer in the healthcare field.  Precision Ultrasound Imaging is proving that our technology is feasible with mobile networks and that remote diagnostic imaging can be performed in rural areas without access to traditional networks.  They are one example of our growing installed base of mobile imaging companies benefiting from our service.”, said Wilson Gottschild, VP of Sales Trice Imaging Inc.

Trice Imaging’s patented technology has won several prestigious industry awards, including a GSMA Global Mobile Award for “Best Mobile Health Innovation” in 2012, and is making huge strides in defining the future of mobile medical imaging.  Trice Imaging plans to continue its expansion into new markets in 2013.
