MIM Mobile is a remote diagnostic imaging tool for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Intended for medical professionals, it's the first app of its kind to receive FDA 510K clearance. It's available as a free download from the Apple App Store. Alternatively, a MIM workstation can be used at a facility to transmit the images to Mobile MIM. All protected health information is encrypted for transfer and storage (for HIPAA compliance). Mobile MIM is indicated for use only when the physician does not have access to a workstation.
