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.
The employees are always nice and want to help but they have cannot solve all the issues. We like AMBRA but do not love AMBRA.
It is fairly easy to use. The software has a lot of tools are doctors appreciate and they are easy to use. The staff is friendly when we have an issue with the software.
There seems to be a lot of glitches. We seem to have issues with the images coming across in a timely fashion. The images will come across fine and then there is an issue with one or two studies. This frustrates the doctors. The doctors come back to x-ray and want to know the issue. When AMBRA is emailed about the issue, we get the an automated response that the issue is being looked into. Two or three hours later we get an email stating the images are now available. We are aware the images are on AMBRA - it is a little late. The doctor has already come back to x-ray to view the images on the x-ray computer. When we talk to someone the response we get from AMBRA is "we will get with the developers" or "we will get with the engineers."
We have been using Ambra almost from their beginning. They have been a great partner with excellent support. They helped Frederick Memorial Hospital become one of the first health care facilities in the country that allows patients to use a patient portal to access their images for viewing, sharing and downloading
Zero foot print viewer, easy to download dicom files. Easy to transfer to outside facilities once the gateway has been created (which Ambra does with minimum effort on our part) Or if no gateway we use email to send studies. Which requires little effort for our users
Sometimes we have to use different filters to find a patients study e.g. if you just put in the medical record number you may not find the exam you want so you'll have to use the name and visa versa-but this is rare. This is really a non-issue but I wish they kept their name of DICOM GRID...
I liked Ambra's customer service, and their willingness to set up shared screen sessions upon short notice. These were incredibly useful to assist research sites in their uploads, and troubleshoot issues that I would not have been able to identify otherwise.
I feel like it could be easier for users/more user friendly- some of the research sites consistently had issues during upload. Maybe an instructional video?
Calling the Ambra support number only connected you to surface-level assistance, while more of the issues that I experienced needed to be addressed by Ambra analysts.
This software is great for loading imaging files. You are able to create different sections in order to keep everything organized and the customer services is very responsive and helpful.
Sometimes files can be difficult to upload, especially if it is a large file. However, Ambra Health is very responsive in helping with uploads and have its own downloader in order to address the issue of large files.
Thank you so much for your review and feedback! I'm passing along your kind words to our entire team!
Let me know if there is anything we can do for you!
The interface is simple and modern, the layout of buttons and overall looks of the user interface is great.
Loading images and changing quality from SD to diagnostic had been an on going issue for our users, sometimes it takes a little bit too much time to clear the image into a diagnostic quality.
Also new users or external user who we share images with are not aware of the quality function and they think the image quality is bad, might be helpful to have a status indicator that the images are still loading and are not in a full diagnostic quality.
The other issue is when changing the window level is the change from diagnostic quality to SD which is very annoying as it is hard to tell what is the optimal window level to stop at.
Adding an option to export image into JPG or other simple format is important, the current way of exporting into PNG isn't very useful as you have to do one by one image plus you will have manually go to save each image.
Thank you for taking the time for the feedback. I'm passing along your enhancement requests to our product team. Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you!
