Manager of Information Technology
Jesse Wakley began working for Direct Radiology in 2016 before joining Philips Telediagnostic Management Solutions, providing management services for Direct Radiology PLLC this year. In his current role, Jesse is responsible for leading the overall technology strategy and execution of: implementation efforts, HL7 integrations, software development, automated intelligence, and overall IT operations.
Jesse was a registered technician before he transitioned to a PACS administrator career. He started by using his talents and knowledge of the PACS systems for local radiology groups. After a couple years in the industry, he discovered inconsistencies in radiologists and hospital workflows, leading to his involvement with software development in the healthcare arena to help improve these inconsistencies. He has built dashboards and analytical tools between radiologists and companies to enhance the ability for teleradiology groups to read in their local area.
As a Software Developer, PACS/CPACS Administrator, RIS/CVIS Administrator, HL7 Analyst and RRT, Jesse has a thorough understanding of all aspects of the healthcare industry. Jesse brings this experience to Direct Radiology to provide comprehensive solutions for Direct Radiology clients by improving efficiency and security, and embracing effective and efficient use of technology.
