OXOS MedicalⓇ (OXOS) of Atlanta, Georgia, and Emergent Connect LLC, of Lakeland, Texas, have partnered to deliver a ground-breaking new solution for the urgent care market. OXOS manufactures the Micro CⓇ, the world’s first handheld x-ray system specifically designed for advancing safe and accurate x-ray at the point of care in facilities without a radiology suite. Emergent Connect provides cloud-native radiology software that connects healthcare facilities to teleradiology firms nationwide. Together, OXOS and Emergent Connect deliver an all-in-one solution to urgent care facilities that includes a handheld x-ray machine, cloud-based radiology software, and seamless access to Rapid Radiology, one of the largest independent teleradiology firms in the United States.
According to Evan Ruff, CEO of OXOS: “This partnership extends a facility’s imaging capabilities and seamlessly enables clinicians to access radiologist insight at the click of the button. It’s like a ‘radiology department in a box’ for facilities that want to offer x-ray diagnostics but do not have the radiologist staff or equipment.”
Mike Spears, EVP, and co-founder of Emergent Connect, states: “We are extremely proud to be first to market with this transformative solution. As a leader in cloud-based solutions to support facilities that rely on radiology, this solution cost-effectively opens a new outlet for safe and secure x-ray diagnostics.”

This turnkey, HIPAA-compliant radiology system incorporates equipment, cloud-based software, and diagnostic radiology reporting, which is inclusive of all billing, integration, and study routing. The combined solution solves many challenges that both patients and urgent care facilities face, such as providing radiology services at the point of care so patients no longer need to leave the facility for an x-ray, instant access to Joint Commission Accredited radiologists, and fast image diagnosis and study reports, all without the need for legacy hardware and IT requirements.
