enterprise image exchange for providers

Provider Exchange™

Enterprise Image Exchange is enabled by the Life Image Interoperability Suite. This set of vendor-agnostic apps connects to all radiology modalities, manufacturers, PACS, RIS, VNA and the EHR for image exchange between providers, patients and innovators. Our apps use common standards and don’t trap you into proprietary tech stacks.

Provider Exchange™ is a DICOM image exchange and image sharing solution that is highly configurable. That means you have the enterprise capability to meet complex workflows across all departments and locations to exchange with your referral sites and patients.

Life Image created the image exchange/image sharing category when we founded our company in 2008. We are dedicated to breaking down data silos and promoting greater interoperability in healthcare.


Our Apps & APIs are based on industry standards.


No proprietary language forcing you to program around it.
