Novarad Catalyzes Global Adoption of its Simple, Secure Record Sharing Technology

Salt Lake City – Novarad announced today the release of CryptoChart Lite, a new web-only version of the CryptoChart™ medical image sharing system, which provides secure digital health records storage and transfer via encrypted QR code or web access code. The healthcare technology company is providing CryptoChart Lite at no cost, allowing providers and patients simple, streamlined, yet fully secure access to medical imaging--effectively removing accessibility challenges no matter the geographical distance or setting.

“One of the recurring frustrations by providers and patients alike is sharing information from different facilities while maintaining strict privacy.” said David GrandPre, Sr. Director Product, Novarad. “Being able to send large digital files like medical images quickly with a built-in viewer anywhere in the world helps simplify access, improve patient outcomes, and lower the cost of providing world-class care anywhere.”

CryptoChart Lite solves the challenge of siloed systems and allows the sharing of medical imaging and reports without CDs, usernames, passwords, or portals. The patient information, URL and a complex password are embedded into an optically readable, hyper-secure, shareable QR code. With no software to install, users simply drag and drop medical images onto the secure web client using their computer or mobile device. CryptoChart Lite can receive any DICOM image when uploaded. Once received, files are compressed, encrypted, and sent to the Novarad ObjectVault® cloud system. While the service is available worldwide, the data is securely stored in the United States and complies with HIPAA guidelines. To access the unique QR code, a doctor or patient can just point a mobile device or bar code scanner at the code, and access only the data that has been encrypted and shared.

“The CryptoChart Lite service is exactly the prescription needed for healthcare professionals frustrated by the barriers of accessing medical images. It’s like a medical Dropbox. Technology should make it easier to provide patient care, not get in our way,” said Dr. Wendell Gibby, Founder and CEO, Novarad. “The Lite version allows facilities globally to try out the CryptoChart platform. We've made it easy with no sign-up required. Just drag and drop the file.”

To access the free version of CryptoChart Lite, global healthcare providers and hospitals can visit:, or point your mobile or QR scanner at this code, and you can try it for yourself. Simple, hyper-secure and fast.
