Specialty teleradiology company finds ideal match for its business model
Greenville, S.C., November 27th, 2018 – Aligned Imaging Solutions (AIS), a teleradiology company focusing exclusively on X-rays, has selected eRAD PACS Evolution as a key part of its growth strategy.
eRAD is a subsidiary of RadNet, Inc., and a leading provider of workflow solutions for busy imaging centers, medical groups, hospital radiology departments, and teleradiology providers.
Jordan Halter, Vice President of Business Development for AIS, explained why the company selected eRAD after a careful evaluation of PACS vendors. “We wanted the right solution to support our new kind of teleradiology company. Our affiliated radiologists focus on one thing and one thing only, and that’s final reads of X-rays 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,” said Halter. “We needed a proven partner with expertise and experience in large-scale teleradiology solutions. eRAD’s PACS Evolution gives us the flexibility and scalability we need in a hosted solution.”
AIS set up its tools, workflows, and operating plan specifically to read X-rays efficiently. “Our affiliated radiologists are hyper-focused on high quality X-ray reads. We like having a solution that we can optimize for our unique needs and that enables us to treat X-ray like a specialty,” said Dr. Serge Sicular, Medical Director of AIS and Director of Emergency Imaging at Mount Sinai Health System. “eRAD is a key part of streamlining our workflow so our affiliated radiologists can focus solely on meeting the service and quality requirements of treating physicians and their patients.”
eRAD easily enables disparate data management at a level of granularity unparalleled in the teleradiology space. “All the things that normally slow down a radiologist covering disparate sites, such as display preferences and reporting templates, are handled automatically in our workflow, giving treating physicians and their patients the benefit of faster turnaround times,” said Halter.
“It’s another example of how the innovators—the real thought leaders—in imaging go with eRAD,” said Seth Koeppel, Senior VP of Sales at eRAD. “It’s because our platform is robust but very agile. It can flex to requirements that are on the leading edge. We don’t ask our customers to fit into some monolithic, hide-bound solution. We’re able to flex to what they need. We’re the ones that can keep up with the new ideas in imaging. We know we’re going to see great things from AIS, and we’re proud to be part of their contribution to the industry.”
