On Tuesday, Philips, who we are collaborating with to deliver the future of teleradiology, today, released an exciting press release that shares the key findings of their Radiology Staff in Focus study. This new research identifies and discusses the pain points that exist specifically for radiology technologists and imaging directors working in the U.S., France, Germany and the U.K., and identifies areas where technology and informatics can deliver meaningful improvements to workflow, imaging results, and patient and staff satisfaction. “As we develop imaging solutions that advance radiology through improved workflow and efficiency, data integration and AI, it’s important that we support radiology staff to provide the best of care to each patient,” said Kees Wesdorp, General Manager, Diagnostic Imaging at Philips.
Though the Philips study focuses specifically on radiology technologists and administration, we believe that radiologists are experiencing most of the same stresses. Understanding the overwhelming need for technological advancements within the practice of radiology, our working with Philips comes at a critical time to offer key support to radiology staff, globally – a perfect symbiosis of smart medical leadership allied with a world-renowned healthtech company, striving to optimize cutting-edge analytics, innovative AI, new and interactive technology, and support services to strengthen, empower, and expedite the operational workflow for radiologists through the advancing practice of teleradiology.
No longer just a preliminary service, teleradiology has expanded beyond after-hours support and is now an essential part of reading services across the globe. We recognize the challenges that today’s radiologist encounter: hours in traffic to and from the office, no worklist prioritization, little insight into performance analytics, and no ability or bandwidth to truly personalize his or her own practice. At RSNA this year, we’ll be sharing our combined vision of how we’re using technological advancements to enable personalization and work-life balance, allowing radiologists to drive and define their own schedule and how they practice. We encourage you to join us and attend our presentation on The Radiologist of the Future at the Philips booth on Tuesday, December 3rd at 10:45am CST to learn in more detail how we’re delivering the future of teleradiology…today.
