vRad Ranks 49th on 2015 InformationWeek Elite 100

Company honored for leveraging data analytics, highlighted by Global Practice Information Report

May 4, 2015 — vRad (Virtual Radiologic) announced that it ranked No. 49 on 2015’s InformationWeek Elite 100, a list of top business-technology innovators in the United States. The company was ranked No. 9 amongst those winners in the Healthcare industry. vRad was recognized for leveraging data analytics, which InformationWeek views as a next-generation technology. Among its current data analytics offerings, vRad highlighted the GPI (Global Practice Information) Report, which provides clients with consolidated practice analytics, including facility and subspecialty-level volumetrics, referring physician utilization and findings-based benchmarks, as well as teleradiology metrics—automatically delivered monthly. The GPI Report helps clients identify trends, best practices and anomalies so they can improve quality, lower costs and identify areas for practice growth. 

vRad developed the GPI Report by compiling final radiology interpretation data from its patented workflow technology platform that serves 2,000+ facilities and manages over 5 million radiology studies annually. It also integrated its clinical benchmarking platform, findings-based RPC (Radiology Patient Care) Indices, natural language processing (NLP) technology, and patent-pending vCoder, vRad’s data normalization solution.

“Gone are the days when IT could run as an entity unto itself. If IT isn’t part of product development, or marketing, or customer service, your company risks falling behind in the era of digital business. At InformationWeek, we talk about this as ‘IT Without Borders,’ as we see the best IT leaders tearing down traditional borders to help every department leverage technologies such as data analytics, cloud and mobility. The 2015 InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights companies at which IT is not only inseparable from every department, it’s pivotal to every customer experience,” said InformationWeek Editor Chris Murphy.
