Interest and comfort in the usability of teleradiology continues to rapidly grow as inquiries from new customers and demand from our existing clients to expand services is at an all-time high. Technological innovation in image processing & transmission encourage the implementation of teleradiology solutions in hospitals, specialty diagnostic firms, and emergency clinics, not only for emergencies and consultation, but as a standard channel of practice. While the need for radiology support across the healthcare market continues to grow at a rapid rate due to unprecedented levels of radiologist turnover and burnout, Direct Radiology continues to work diligently to support growing interest from existing and new customers.
As global healthcare providers and other industry stakeholders strive to progress telehealth solutions and achieve the promise of more personalized, effective clinical care through precision medicine, teleradiology has emerged as an offering that can help hospitals and health systems further both goals. This perfectly exemplifies how Philips and Direct Radiology came to recognize the value in partnering together to expand the future evolution and growth of teleradiology. By optimizing Philips’ innovative AI, cutting-edge analytics, new & interactive technology, and support services to enhance operational workflows, we have been able to advance overall efficiencies, customer support capabilities, and drive connected, comprehensive care for our customers.
Recently, this shared strategic vision and the growing need for implementing teleradiology as a practice was discussed in a Q&A article with Chip Truwit, Philips Chief Medical Officer, published by Becker’s Hospital Review entitled, “Teleradiology’s role in operational efficiency, precision diagnosis and accessible care: 5 Qs with Philips CMO Dr. Chip Truwit.” To learn more about the growing teleradiology market, the role of virtual care in reducing burnout, the clinical use of artificial intelligence in teleradiology, and the role that both Philips and Direct Radiology play, click here to read the Becker’s Hospital Review article.
