Saving patient’s lives…one server at a time!
Heartbeat™ was created by imaging IT professionals with the goal of making healthcare better. Having worked at dozens of the largest health systems in North America, we have designed, implemented and managed some of the largest enterprise imaging systems in use. During the routine management of these systems we found that the available monitoring tools didn’t come close to meeting our needs.
As IT professionals we wanted to know when our systems were slow or down BEFORE our physicians – and their patients – were impacted. Since we couldn’t source the tools we wanted, we decided to build them ourselves. Now we want to offer those same enterprise-level tools to other health systems to improve system availability and better patient care.
Intelligent Imaging LLC was founded in 2018 to bring Heartbeat™ to market.
We aspire to build a future where every patient receives the quality of care we want for our own family members. Every time a physician treats a patient, they should have access to the imaging studies. Medical imaging is a cornerstone of clinical care and when images are unavailable, patients are put at risk. With Heartbeat™, we make sure that doctors have the tools they need, when they need them, to provide the best patient care possible. We are proud to go to work each day knowing we are saving patient’s lives, one server at a time!
