Direct Radiology (DR) Posts Significant Increases in Clients And Caseload for 2015 And Provides Profit Sharing Distribution To Its Radiologists
Direct Radiology was founded on two guiding principles:
- Teleradiology is best provided by a dedicated group of physicians working as partners with your group, and,
- Direct access to the medical leadership of your teleradiology provider working hand-in-hand with a highly responsive, and professional management team are the key to providing the highest level of patient care.
We strive to provide the kind of patient care that we would want our families to receive. We do that by providing the kind of work environment where radiologists and staff thrive and perform at their best.
Our 2015 year-to-date performance has proven that the radiology community continues to embrace our philosophy as well. Year to date in 2015, Direct Radiology has added 41 new sites. We now offer services to over 180 hospitals, imaging centers, doctor’s office, and mobile imaging companies nationwide.
Our Model Is Working:
Our 3rd quarter year-over-year case volumes have increased 66%. As a result, this year we have added 7 new full time radiologists and advanced several others from part-time to full-time status, and due to continued strong growth we are actively seeking additional highly qualified radiologists.
Also, as a result of our growth and strong revenue production, Direct Radiology announced its first distribution within the profit sharing program to our radiologists.
Direct Radiology has also added additional non-radiologist staff in 2015, including a new Marketing Director and eight new Billing, Credentialing, and Radiologist Support personnel.
We are making investments in new IT projects including an enhanced voice-recognition-dictation platform and new automated ICD-10 auditing software at the radiologist report level to ensure correct coding and billing as we move forward in the new ICD-10 era.
At Direct Radiology our goals for the future are simple:
- Provide teleradiology reports that are of the highest quality and accuracy from the best radiologists in the country,
- Deliver the best possible service to our clients with the most responsive and knowledgeable business professionals available, and,
- Continue to innovate and lead the field of teleradiology through investments in our people and technology.
We firmly believe that with our expanded team of radiologists and staff, coupled with our new IT initiatives, we will continue to lead the teleradiology industry in the pursuit of excellence.
This past year has been a time of strong growth for Direct Radiology, and we could not be more excited to see what the next 12 months hold.
About Direct Radiology
As a physician led organization, the founders and senior physicians believe our radiologists are our most important asset and how we lead reflects not only on our company but our commitment to building a strong organization and a physician group.
We “Un-corporate” teleradiology.
We are a true partnership, owned and operated by our full-time radiologists and physician leadership. Our goal is to build a long-term, fulfilling teleradiology practice for our physicians while providing outstanding patient care and exceptional service to our clients.
We work in collaboration with our clients, as an extension of the group. The strength and stability of our client relationships are more important to us than growth.
We are non-predatory. We do not displace or undercut existing radiology groups.
Cost-Effective Teleradiology Solutions
By eliminating executive salaries, private equity profits, and other corporate expenses, we are able to be highly cost-competitive while delivering superior quality and consistency. Strong physician relationships make for better patient care. In our experience, teleradiology works best when clinicians are familiar with and comfortable with the radiologist on the other end of the phone. Our clients are covered by small teams of dedicated radiologists who build trust with referring clinicians through frequent direct physician-to-physician communication.
