PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 4, 2012-- PACSGEAR, the leading provider of imaging connectivity for electronic health records, today announced the PACSGEAR Image Exchange, a cloud-based solution designed to securely upload and share medical images and results between facilities.

"Customers want the option to share medical images electronically.

When we looked at our technology, we realized that our customers already had the critical components in place to enable image sharing.
