Rapidly growing teleradiology provider demonstrates safety and quality of care as company addresses global shortage of radiologists

Nano-X Imaging Ltd., an innovative medical imaging technology company, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, USARAD Holdings, Inc., one of the world’s leading teleradiology providers, has been re-certified with The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval.

December 20, 2021 — Nano-X Imaging Ltd., an innovative medical imaging technology company, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, USARAD Holdings, Inc., one of the world’s leading teleradiology providers, has been re-certified with The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval. The Joint Commission is the leading accrediting organization in the United States that certifies more than 22,000 health care organizations and programs based on the highest standards of patient safety and quality of care.

This prestigious designation recognizes an organization's commitment to providing high quality and safe patient care based on ongoing compliance with The Joint Commission’s stringent criteria. Following an unannounced inspection, USARAD passed in the Ambulatory Care category without any conditions, underscoring the company’s dedication to compliance and quality. USARAD was initially certified by The Joint Commission in 2009 and is considered among the longest continuously accredited telemedicine companies by The Joint Commission, in fact serving as an industry standard.

“We are extremely proud that our policies and procedures continue to safeguard patients and help ensure precise exam interpretation by meeting the quality standards of the most widely recognized medical credentialing program in the country,” said Michael Yuz, M.D., MBA, founder and CEO of USARAD. “As we have expanded rapidly over the years, USARAD has maintained the high standards that have been its hallmark since the company’s inception and that have propelled its rapid growth. Today, quality, on-demand outsourced imaging exam reading remains a vital service as healthcare faces a growing radiologist shortage worldwide.”

Following its recent acquisition by Nanox, USARAD will be leveraging its network of hundreds of board-certified teleradiologists combined with artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to help realize the shared vision of providing scanning-as-a-service and implementation of a worldwide end-to-end medical imaging solution leveraging the most advanced technologies and qualified talent, from exam acquisition through interpretation and results reporting. As the new relationship progresses, the partners plan to work with imaging facilities throughout the world, including approximately 6,000 freestanding imaging centers and more than 10,000 urgent care clinics in the U.S. alone to help fill the gap in radiologist services wherever needed and to democratize the delivery of imaging care.

USARAD is radiologist-run and operated company that interprets general and sub-specialty exams in all modalities. Through its unique Radiologist-On-Demand platform, USARAD provides timely and responsive image review 24/7 with highly qualified radiologists worldwide. Subspecialty interpretations are performed by fellowship-trained radiologists, often with additional certifications, including CAQs and subspecialty board diplomas.

The Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO) is a private, not-for-profit organization whose mission is “to continuously improve health care for the public, in collaboration with other stakeholders, by evaluating health care organizations and inspiring them to excel in providing safe and effective care of the highest quality and value.” To receive accreditation, a healthcare site must show that its current processes, policies and procedures are in compliance with all standards of The Joint Commission prior to a Commission survey and must document maintenance of these standards throughout its accreditation period.
