Teleradiology and Artificial Intelligence: Two major disruptive Technologies for the Medicine of the Future: Part 3
No more dreams of the future: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is finding its important place in medical diagnostics.
We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller understand and operate telemedicine as an important, secure centre of medical data. Not only do we fully comply with the requirements of the GDPR and other international legal texts: We also develop our own high-security and high-availability networks so that our customers benefit from our all-round data protection at all times.
Naturally, all AI manufacturers are interested in offering their products to as many users as possible. Telemedicine, especially teleradiology, offers this possibility. Our technology at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller protects medical data on a global level and allows our customers and all interested medical professionals to use the most up-to-date AI that is best suited to their specific needs.
AI in teleradiology does not mean that the medical activity is shortened or even unnecessary. On the contrary: We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller have been carrying out independent tests with what we believe to be the most appropriate AI for years. In this way we ensure that these AIs, which have been tested over a long period of time and with a lot of our own data, represent a significant benefit for medical diagnostics in the future. Man and machine go hand in hand. We attach the greatest importance to the fact that humans will always have dominion over AI.

Teleradiology and Artificial Intelligence: Two major disruptive Technologies for the Medicine of the Future: Part 2
Teleradiology has established itself as a professional service that supports medical institutions in their daily tasks. And now the next innovation in medical diagnostics comes into play with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Read part 2 of our report here!
AI applications undergo a whole series of tests before they are ready for the market, which are essential for approval by the international regulatory authorities, such as the FDA in North America and CE in Europe. This creates the basis for AI results to be characterised by high sensitivity, specificity and accuracy. This means that the result for a characteristic that the AI used is looking for will contain the highest possible number of true positive results and at the same time only a negligible number of false positive and false negative results.
The prioritisation of investigations
We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller work together with major AI developers. We help to produce such AI which enables patients to be prioritised according to the degree of injury and illness. The AI can thus help to triage in order to first produce those findings that are most urgently needed by our clinical partners in hospitals and institutes in Switzerland, Germany and Austria for patient treatment. Such AI enables a significantly improved allocation of resources and results in optimal individualised patient care.
What is the current status of the symbiosis of teleradiology and AI? Read more in part 3!
At ERS, we have been working 24/7 for many hundreds of thousands of patients with our teleradiology for many years.

Especially for Radiologists, Telemedicine offers many interesting possibilities that were unthinkable until a few years ago. Thanks to digitalization and progress in information technology developments, you as a radiologist can now work from anywhere. The advantages of teleradiology in two parts:
Work from any location
If you are a radiologist looking for work, you often do not have the opportunity to work where you would like to work. In many cases, a new job involves moving to another city. Teleradiology offers the possibility to work completely independent of location. We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller as teleradiology provider in Switzerland, Austria and Germany support you in setting up your home office. It goes without saying that we only use certified medical products of the highest quality. These include certified diagnostic monitors, which are constantly checked for constancy, as well as the connection to our own proprietary, highly secure network. This means that you have a complete telemedical workplace on site and can live where you feel comfortable.
Flexible work assignments
In teleradiology you can flexibly arrange your work assignments with us as a radiologist. Teleradiology is increasingly being used by clinics and practices to relieve the burden on their own radiology department or to outsource it completely. The night shift in radiology, in particular, is increasingly being shifted to teleradiology. However, teleradiology is also being used more and more frequently in cases of general shortage of doctors, overcapacity or holiday and illness replacement. And even if you work as a radiologist in a clinic, you can earn an additional salary in teleradiology, for example by working the night shift.
Especially for younger people, flexibility and independence are becoming increasingly important. In addition to working in a clinic, many radiologists dream of becoming self-employed with their own practice. However, this requires a great deal of financial and organizational effort, which is not always easy to manage. On the other hand, at Emergency Radiology Schueller you also benefit from many advantages that self-employment offers, such as performance-related remuneration for your qualified specialist work. You can read more about this here in part 2 shortly.
Our company ERS is in Zug, Switzerland at home. We offer teleradiology in the German-speaking market and Artificial Intelligence worldwide.
On November 4th, 2021 we will talk about the ERS Emergency Radiology Schueller division!
Teleradiology and Artificial Intelligence: Two major disruptive Technologies for the Medicine of the Future
The great potential of teleradiology is now recognised. Today, it has earned a reputation as a professional service that supports medical institutions in their daily tasks. And now, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the next innovation in medical diagnostics.
Teleradiology already has a significant influence on the field of radiology. It contributes to significantly improving the quality of medicine through its high-quality diagnostic sub-specialisation that can be used at any desired location. Teleradiology also helps to make existing radiological workplaces in hospitals and specialist radiological institutes more attractive in the long term and even to prevent burnout: obligatory services at unloved times, such as at night, at weekends and on public holidays, are simply no longer necessary for radiologists from such institutions. And in the event of an excessively high work volume, for example during peak or off-peak times or in the event of staff shortages, we at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller – can take over and report on any number of examinations for our customers at any time in the shortest possible time and with our high quality.
But that is not all. We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller – are constantly questioning ourselves and are already thinking today about those services which will make their contribution to serve society in the best possible way in the future. Revolutionary information technology has enabled the emergence of both teleradiology and AI. The rapid development of telecommunications has helped teleradiology to celebrate its great success. The development of the DICOM standard, which enabled the storage and exchange of information in medical image data management, had a particular influence on this. For AI, the development of algorithms of neural networks in connection with the latest generation of powerful processors offers the possibility of processing large amounts of data in parallel.
