Managing transitions of care continues to be one of the most disconnected and wasteful aspects of healthcare today. Consider that:

• About 30% of patients forget the CD
• It costs > $10 to create an imaging CD
• 22% of CD’s don’t work
• Up to one-third of CT exams are unnecessary
• 10% of today’s healthcare dollars go to medical imaging procedures
• 1-2% of cancer deaths may be due to a cancer caused by a CT scan

It seems obvious that streamlining the sharing of historical medical image exams should receive significant attention. What is needed to solve these issues and ensure that a patient’s historical medical images can be promptly accessed by all caregivers, is a solution architecture that anticipates and supports the need for images to be available along with the rest of the patient’s required medical history.
