kathy ireland Worldwide expands health advocacy through partnership with tech startup mymedicalimages.com
Medical imaging technology startup mymedicalimages.com has partnered with kathy ireland Worldwide (kiWW) for a new, cutting-edge patient-centric medical image sharing platform.
mymedicalimages.com is a simple, cloud-based system for patients and their families to view, share, and manage a lifetime of HIPAA-secure medical images. An estimated $20 billion is needlessly spent annually in the U.S. on duplicate medical images, and the predominant image file transfer method is outmoded CD-ROM disks, which offer no security.
Kathy Ireland, Chair, CEO and Chief Designer of kiWW said: "mymedicalimages' system is truly a game-changer in patient care. Its benefits are powerful. From eliminating duplicate images, and thereby reducing unnecessary additional radiation exposure and additional costs to the patient, to avoiding delays in receiving second opinions and specialist evaluations. Your medical images and those of your family members are right there at your fingertips, and can be sent in a matter of seconds, eliminating the stressful waiting period patients and their families often face."
Dan Hodgeman, Founder & CEO of mymedicalimages.com said: "We have an amazing group of physician visionaries who help guide the company by providing feedback from their fields of expertise. On the patient side, we are thrilled to add Kathy Ireland and her incredible team at kiWW. As a leading health advocate and activist, which also includes serving as International Youth Chair for the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Kathy will help to bring awareness and critically-needed funding to NPCF, as well as awareness to families that need this technology in their fight against pediatric cancer. Medical images are an essential part of diagnosis and treatment, and we are introducing a new way to give patients and doctors immediate access."
