PocketHealth also plans to double its staff headcount within the next two years to support these objectives.

Founded in 2016 by brothers Harsh and Rishi Nayyar, PocketHealth is a patient-centric image exchange platform that currently supports more than 1.5 million patients across 775 healthcare provider sites in North America.

The platform aims to offer healthcare providers a secure, next-generation solution for exchanging diagnostic images with patients and external providers.

It allows images to be shared instantly across any network or the creation of a local network of PocketHealth Community Gateways for automated image exchange, eliminating the need for outdated methods such as CD-ROMs.

PocketHealth has secured contracts with health systems and outpatient imaging groups such as UofL Health, University Health Network and Radiology Partners.

Rishi Nayyar said: “We’ve proven that when patients gain access to diagnostic-quality imaging and our industry-leading AI helps them understand their records, they are empowered to advocate for their care.

“The end result is increased patient satisfaction, a faster image-sharing process for providers, and greater patient retention.

“Now, our goal is to make PocketHealth accessible to every patient at every provider across North America.”
