Virtual Connections Bring Radiologists to Patients and Referring Providers Without Leaving The Reading Room

Posted by Chris McIntyre on Mon, Sep 17, 2018

Recent research has shown that direct communication with radiologists makes patients more satisfied and referring providers more educated. In a January 2018 survey, 96% of patients said that reviewing imaging studies with radiologists improved their understanding of both findings and recommendations. A 2016 study found that 45% of acute care surgeons revised their surgical plans after meeting face-to-face with radiologists. Since the digitization of imaging, however, the practice and workflow of radiology has tied radiologists to their PACS workstations severely limiting their ability to participate in face-to-face, and even phone- based, communications.

Access to Diagnostic Quality Images Enables "Massive Leap" in Pediatric Emergency Care for Australia’s New South Wales

Posted by Chris McIntyre on Tue, Aug 14, 2018

In New South Wales (NSW), Australia’s most populous state that is bigger than Texas, there are 254 hospitals to serve its population of nearly 8 million. However, among these hospitals only 10 have neonatal intensive care capacity and only three have pediatric intensive care capacity. To solve this care gap, in 1979 the state established the Newborn and pediatric Emergency Transport Service (NETS) to provide 24/7 emergency transport of emergency pediatric cases to Sydney Children’s Hospital or other locations.
