(RALEIGH, NC & TUSCON, AZ) – May 26, 2022 – US Radiology Specialists, Inc., one of the nation’s premier physician-owned radiology practices, announced that it is expanding the use of the innovative Rad AI technology platform at Tucson-based Radiology Ltd.
Rad AI, one of the fastest-growing radiologist-led A.I. software platforms, uses advanced technology to help radiologists save time, reduce burnout, and improve patient care through customized radiology report impressions. Made for radiologists by radiologists, it can save seconds to minutes per report and nearly an hour per shift by generating a customized impression from findings and clinical indications dictated by radiologists, learning individual language preferences from prior reports.
“By partnering with Rad AI, we can bring a critical service to our radiologists at Radiology Ltd.,” said Starla Longfellow, Vice President of Physician Practice Technology at US Radiology Specialists. “Rad AI utilizes machine learning, helping radiologists create reports more efficiently and effectively, making more time available to consult with referring physicians and guide patient care. We believe this technology will greatly benefit our practices moving forward.”
“Rad AI exceeded radiologist expectations out of the gate. Seamless integration permitted our radiologists to immediately realize the efficiencies of the Rad AI Omni platform. With Rad AI, our radiologists reported feeling less stressed with more time available to review studies or tend to other tasks,” said Dr. David Jeck, President of Radiology Ltd. “This is exactly the type of I.T. solution needed to help reduce radiologist burnout and boost job satisfaction.”
“US Radiology is on the cutting edge of patient care, so we are excited to help them expand the use of Rad AI Omni. Our initial set of radiologist users at Radiology Ltd. experienced significant value from using Omni in less than a month. We look forward to deploying to other US Radiology practices going forward,” said Josh Duncan, VP of Sales and Customer Success at Rad AI. “Ultimately, as radiologists experience the increased efficiency and decreased fatigue from using Rad AI Omni, they can better care for their patients and achieve US Radiology’s mission of making the best of radiology better.”
