VRad (Virtual Radiologic), is a MEDNAX company and the nation’s leading teleradiology services and telemedicine company. With more than 500 U.S. board-certified and eligible physicians, 70 percent of whom are subspecialty trained, vRad provides its services to more than 2,100 facilities in all 50 states.
But ask vRad President and COO Shannon Werb what separates vRad from other teleradiology providers and he focuses on the composition of the practice, not its size.
“We are first a physician practice—the largest radiology practice in the country,” Werb explains. “And second, we’re a technology organization and provider.”
As a technology provider, vRad boasts an impressive resume, including 17 patents for telemedicine workflow innovations, and is a recognized leader in imaging analytics and deep learning-assisted diagnostics.
But Werb believes vRad separates itself by operating through a physician’s lens.
“We build our own technology platforms,” Werb says. “And we build them with physicians and for physicians. Everything we do is with them in mind.”
Getting the right study to the right radiologist at the right time
Among the physician-driven technological advances pioneered by vRad is a workflow system that automatically routes studies to the most appropriate subspecialty-trained radiologist.
It’s part of vRad’s organizational drive to ensure that patients receive the same standard of care wherever and whenever they need it.
