Medical Technology Helps Keep Traveling Wish Kids Safe

When Make-A-Wish patients travel to their wish destinations, they rarely bring their medical images with them, putting them at increased risk, exposing them to additional radiation, and making it harder for physicians to treat them. As a pediatric critical care physician working at an Orlando trauma hospital, I treat many wish children. We’re now using cloud-based medical image sharing to help families and their physicians coordinate safe trips and perpetuate the mission of Make-A-Wish.
