mRay connects Asklepios Clinics
Hospital group signs framework agreement with mbits
With 160 medical facilities in 14 German counties and more than two million patients treated, Asklepios is one of the leading hospital groups in Germany.
We are pleased that we could convince Asklepios of the advantages of mRay so that the hospital group would like to extend the use of our app to other clinics.
At the end of last year, the Asklepios clinics of the "Hamburg cluster" had already decided in favor of mRay. With 7 acute care clinics, including the Asklepios clinics Altona, Barmbek, Wandsbek, Harburg and Clinik Nord, the cluster uses mRay throughout the Hanseatic city for radiology and on-call service.
With the new framework agreement, the clinics in the south can also be connected via mRay for teleradiological reasons.
mbits at start-up consultation of the bvmd
CEO Ingmar Gergel answers questions asked by medical students
On 28.07.2020 the first digital start-up consultation of the Bundesvertretung der Medizinstudierenden in Deutschland - bvmd took place.
The digital meeting served to establish contact between start-ups and medical students.
45 students had the opportunity to interview industry representatives from the medical technology sector.
mbits CEO Dr. Gergel along with three other guests answered the students' questions.
Telemedicine, mobile applications and AI controlled algorithms are more and more significant. With mRay these topics are already realizable today and simplify flexible diagnosis, communication and documentation of radiological images in many clinics. A new edition of the consultation format is already planned.
New customers at home and abroad
Eppdata uses mRay
More and more clinics internationally are relying on mRay. The Huahin Hospital in Thailand has been using our application for some time now
as a communication app for the doctors working there.
In Germany, Eppdata has also opted for mRay. The subsidiary company of the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf trusts for "Faster Sampling And Analysis For Interventional Neuroradiolgoy" in cooperation with the UKE on our App. We would like to thank you for the trust you have placed in us.
mRay spreads in radiological practices
My Radiology Holding becomes partner of mbits
On August 1, 2020, mbits imaging GmbH will start a strategic partnership with Meine Radiologie Holding (MRH Group) - a large network of radiological practices throughout Germany that is constantly growing.
Meine Radiologie Holding offers successful owners of radiological, nuclear medicine or radiotherapy practices a professional succession solution by taking over practices, group practices and medical care centres, accompanying the handover process and helping the retiring owners to ensure the long-term preservation of their life's work.
Our mRay app will be rolled out to all MRH Group sites, so that all radiologists in the group can benefit from it without restriction. In a press release of the MRH Group it says: "Thanks to the innovative app we provide more flexibility in services for our physicians and enable faster transmission of findings to our cooperation partners and patients".
Land der Gesundheit reports on mRay
Our App as "Perspektive 21 - Time for Changes"
"Eight ideas from the time of the Corona crisis to push health forward", says
under the heading "Perspective 21". This includes our app mRay and our campaign, to offer the app for
the duration of the crisis free of charge.
The platform for health issues of the future, run by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, became aware of us through the coverage of "Germany Land of Ideas", who in the context of the initiative #beyondcirises already spoke of mRay as a crisis innovation.
Medical journal tests mRay
Our app comes off very well here
The Deutsche Ärzteblatt - a news portal for physicians - has taken a close look at our app.
The editorial team's assessments were published in a detailed article .
"With mRay the manufacturer offers a platform-independent application. The demo version of the app offers a first impression of the possibilities and the way it is used," it comes to a conclusion.
In addition, the portal also provides a much more detailed PDF by the Center for Telematics and Telemedicine, that lists the underlying "Test documents for the application 'mRay DICOM Viewer'".
"Germany - Land of Ideas" becomes aware of mbits
mRay is presented as a "Beyond Crisis Project"
The innovation platform "Germany Land of Ideas" was recently became aware to our app mRay
and is now presenting it as part of the initiative #beyondcrisis.
The aim of the initiative is to make good ideas and innovations visible that help in the Corona Crisis or arise from it and support them with a network.
"Germany - Land of Ideas" carried out the image campaign of the Federal Government and the German economy for the Football World Cup 2006, which was actually only planned for one year. Due to the positive response, the operators have since then been looking for good ideas and innovations and making them visible, to highlight the positive aspects of Germany and provide impetus for the future.
mRay 6.0 is there
With many new use cases and improvements
Since last week a new version of our app mRay is available via the appstores.
For the first time it is also available for Windows as a direct download from the Microsoft Store. The new major release offers numerous new features:
> A screen-sharing function allows you to view the image data live with colleagues with whom you can also communicate directly via voice transmission.
> From now on, you can create chat groups yourself or simply open a group for a specific study or case.
> An image orientation indicator (L R S A) simplifies orientation within the scans.
> You can send the medical images via link and thus make them available to your patients quickly and easily.
> Among other new features, improvements in the referral portal, the barcode scanner and the data exchange between server and client lead to increased user-friendliness and performance.
#Stay up to date
mbits receives MDR certificate
As one of the first medical device manufacturers
The original starting date for the scope of the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) EU 2017/745 was 26 May 2020. Due to the corona crisis, the new Medical Device Regulation was postponed by a whole year, as a changeover even under regular operation would have posed major challenges for many medical technology companies, which they were not to be burdened with during the exceptional situation caused by Covid-19.
mbits had already switched quality management to MDR before the Corona crisis. The just released new version of our app mRay 6.0 has already been developed according to MDR guidelines.
The changeover requires some fundamental adjustments to existing workflows - a major challenge. The Emergency Aid Program of the Health Industry BW develops group-specific content together with companies and makes it available.
At the ZDF you see mbits

With mRay, your doctor can send you a link, through which you can view your data in the web browser on your laptop or directly on your smartphone or tablet.
Talk to your doctor. The download of the mRay app via the App Store and the Google Play Store is free of charge for patients. Stay healthy and join us in bringing technological progress into our healthcare system!
What's going on at mbits?
At the beginning of this week we received unexpectedly pleasant visitors, but we do not want to reveal too much at this point. The best speculations are rewarded with prices. #StayUpToDate!
Press Review: Our Initiative in The Media, Part II
We keep on drawing circles, even on the radio
The german radio station Neue Welle requested an interview about our initiative in the fight against the corona virus.
As part of the series "good ideas against the further spread of the virus" the radio station broadcast the interview shortly afterwards.
Especially among doctors and in hospitals we want to offer a little help with our app mRay in these challenging times. For that reason in the past few days, the science platform Analytica, the Health & Care Management Magazine, the decision-maker factory and Bionity.com were reporting about us.
We would like to thank all media representatives for supporting our project and we wish our customers and clinic partners endurance. Of course we still offer mRay free of charge for the duration of the crisis - but at least for the next two months. Contact us by phone or mail or use the new chat function on our homepage. Our support team is prepared and can carry out installations at short notice and without bureaucracy.
Our initiative continues to have an effect
In the past few days, six more clinics have decided to use mRay
So that doctors can work on smartphones or tablets, or if necessary from homeoffice
the Kliniken Köln,
the University Hospital of Schleswig-Holstein
and the Radiologie Am Fleet count on mRay.
And our mobile DICOM-platform is also receiving further international acclaim. With the Hospital General Dr. Raymundo Abarca Alarcon in Mexico we can book our first installation overseas. We would like to thank all new mRay users for their confidence in our system and look forward to a long-term cooperation.
Of course we will continue to offer mRay free of charge for the duration of the crisis. Please contact us by phone or mail or use the new chat function on our homepage. Our support team is prepared and can carry out installations at short notice and without bureaucracy.
Shortly after the start of our initiative, we were able to report for the first time on how well mRay is accepted.
During the crisis, Germany's digitisation gap is taking its revenge
The opportunity of new technologies
Who is the driving force behind the hitherto completely sleepy digitalization - especially in the German health care system? The hospital IT? The doctors?
The managers? The answer is: Covid-19.
Suddenly measures are implemented that previously required years of planning or were directly appeased "because we have never done it like this before". Our initiative mRay free of charge for the duration of the crisis has kept mbits very busy the last two weeks and induced 14 houses to get use of our DICOM-platform, to rely on a software that enables secure and fast communication of medical image data on mobile. This kind of technology should actually have been state-of-the-art in medicine for a long time.
When talking about the "crisis as an opportunity", attention must be drawn to circumstances that should not have been an issue for a long time. mbits has been working for quite some time on cross-clinic networking for the treatment of stroke and here too it is clear - a fast networking in the fight against Covid-19 is essential. Any clinic that already uses mRay can network with any other clinic. Our server-client solution enables the connection two mRay servers with each other, which enables doctors to exchange information across clinics immediately.

The Radiology Magazine reports about our initiative in the fight against Covid-19
Interview with CEO Dr. Ingmar Gergel
The radilogy magazine reports online about our initiative,
to offer mRay free of charge for the duration of the crisis, but at least for the next two months, which means that all hospital departments are free to use
our mobile DICOM platform.
In the article, Dr. Ingmar Gergel, CEO of mbits, explains the offer. We hope that this will make a small contribution to relieving the health system and to help overcome the crisis.
When doctors are in quarantine
Mobile solutions are now indispensable!
The current crisis is forcing clinics to take measures that would otherwise require months, if not years of preparation: home office - also known as remote work or mobile working.
Many clinics are now faced with the challenge of setting up sufficient home offices and providing access to the computers at the workplace via VPN connections. However, access to the clinic workstation alone will not be sufficient in the coming weeks. Doctors need to be able to exchange information quickly and on a case-by-case basis, they need access to the PACS and the ability to view, send or even view medical image data on mobile devices.
We provide our software free of charge for the duration of the crisis, but at least for the next two months. All departments can use our mobile DICOM platform mRay without restrictions to cover all these needs and to create measures to stabilize this emergency situation.
Our software has been in use in numerous renowned university hospitals for several years. We are currently working to make new installations possible quickly and without bureaucracy.
Contact us by mail or phone.

mRay in times of crisis
Five new customers using mRay for remote work
The Allee Radiology in Remscheid
has been one of the first radiology practices to opt for the mRay referral portal, which helps the referring physicians
to receive medical images of their patients digitally and immediately.
Taxi rides to transport CDs and DVDs are history here.
The Ruppiner Kliniken
have in turn been one of the first clinics to use the
mRay uploader portal, which enables external employees of the clinic to transmit medical images quickly and securely.
We are also pleased about the Klinikum Westmünsterland, which will use mRay in the future for the background service in radiology, and the Klinikum Esslingen, who are now using mRay-VEOcore for a fully automated perfusion analysis for better therapy decisions.
We are breaking new ground with the veterinary practice Konar Tartarelli, which with the help of mRay has become a pioneer in Italy in the field of Teleradiology in veterinary medicine.
We would like to thank all new mbits customers for their trust in our system and are looking forward to the future cooperation.
Covid 19: Immediate insights through rapid exchange
Using mRay for urgent research results in the fight against the coronavirus
Every day, authorities worldwide report further infections with the novel coronavirus. There is a high level of uncertainty among patients, physicians, medical and nursing staff in dealing with this acute situation. As a result, the burden on medical and nursing staff is increasing, which in turn can lead to absenteeism due to staff illnesses and thus further stress for other employees.
The mobile application mRay can relieve the burden especially in these times by providing personnel with a tool for the digital communication of image data, medical documents and other treatment-relevant information. Particularly with the threat of an emerging pandemic in a globalised and networked world, digital tools such as mRay are indispensable for effective action.
As already published, Covid-19 infection can be detected much earlier with computed tomography than with PCR. The integrated communication platform in mRay has the advantage of sharing complete series or individual image sections as key images with colleagues regionally, nationally or internationally at the push of a button. For the exchange of information and for the care of (potentially) infected or sick patients, communication is a simple and, above all, secure solution for all sides.
As part of the global crisis, we are making mRay available this month to interested clinics, practices or other organizations without installation costs. Please contact us promptly.
We made it among the Top 5 digitisation topics 2020
mbits convinces at the decision maker event
With our concept for "Seamless Digital Support In Stroke Care"
we were able to convince those entitled to vote at the decision-making event in Düsseldorf last Thursday.
At the event of the Entscheiderfabrik, 12 digitisation topics in the health care system were introduced. mbits presented together with clinic representative Prof. Dr. Marios-Nikos Psychogios an innovative solution for complete stroke care and thus made it among the top 5. During the following decision cycle we will present the progress of the project at the Summer Camp in Teltge and the final results at MEDICA in November.
We would like to thank all those who gave us their votes. We will keep you up to date.
mbits Research published in Journal
Tochless, Intra-operative Image Viewing Using Deep Learning
In cooperation with the Diakonissen Hospital Mannheim our work on the "Evaluating Usability of a Touchless Image Viewer
in the Operating Room" was published in the Journal of Applied Clinics Informatics.
A simple Neural Network is used to recognize different gestures of physicians to control mRay. The usability study proves its intuitive application. The simple integration into mRay resulted in a human-computer interaction, based on the simplest technology to digitalize and accelerate medical processes.
We would like to thank all participants for the excellent cooperation.
MDR is coming!
mbits has long since been prepared...
Our quality management is already certified according to MDR 2017/745
On May 26, 2020, the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) EU 2017/745 enter into force.
The new regulation on medical devices poses great challenges for many medical device companies.
mbits employees have been introduced to agile software development and the company's comprehensive quality management system from the very beginning. Through regular training and seminars the knowledge is always kept up to date.
These measures have led to the fact that mbits already received the certification recommendation according to the requirements of the new MDR 2017/745 within the scope of our "Diagnostic image viewer with image processing functions". at the beginning of December 2019 by the TÜV Süd.
Good luck and stay up to date!
