Established in 1999, NationalRad is one of the United States’ leading subspecialty diagnostic radiology practices. Based in south Florida, the organization’s staff comprises 25 highly qualified subspecialty radiologists, working mainly from home offices that are distributed across the country. Together, they provide over 100,000 subspecialty interpretations per year to approximately 125 clients.For NationalRad, being a distributed organization enables them to hire industry-leading radiologists, regardless of where they are located. It also enables them to provide a great deal of freedom to their team, who may have teaching obligations at universities, lecture at conferences around the country or simply prefer working at night.Given their distinct set-up, NationalRad has a unique IT architecture. As such, the organization has thrived since deploying IntelePACS in September 2013, experiencing a tremendous increase in productivity due to the solution’s ease of use, and the speed at which doctors can access studies and complete reports, from any location. “Since deploying IntelePACS across our organization, we’ve been able to increase our radiologists’ mobility, as they always have access to the same customized solution interfaces and viewer,” said Karen Jodat, chief operating officer at NationalRad.Using Intelerad’s InteleConnect Clinical Hub, NationalRad has also been able to improve their results distribution, as the solution allows them to push images and reports to referring physicians working in clinics, imaging centers or even a specific department within a hospital.Read More
