Cloud storage and collaboration provider Box has acquired medical image viewing startup, MedXT for an undisclosed amount. Box is expected to close the MedXT acquisition in early November and MedXT’s two employees founders Reshma Khilnani and Cody Ebberson—will join Box’s engineering team.
Post acquisition, “MedXT’s core technologies, including its DICOM viewer, will be incorporated into the Box platform. The combination of MedXT’s PACS and cloud-based clinical image sharing tool alongside Box’s HIPAA compliant file sharing solution will improve interoperability, care coordination and basic data sharing in the industry,” MedXT wrote on its website.
“Together with MedXT, we will pursue the vision for a healthcare system where physicians have instant access to critical medical procedures and data from tablets; patients can obtain their personal medical records and information without friction; and institutions can share healthcare outcomes and data across organizations, securely,” added by Box chief executive Aaron Levie in a blog post.
