The Emergency Radiology Schueller Team wishes you a peaceful Advent season, happy holidays and a happy and successful 2021.

We founded Emergency Radiology Schueller in Switzerland in 2014. Since then, we have been global trendsetters for telemedicine services. We have perfected teleradiology with the highest quality at any time of day, be it with our Emergency Radiology Division for all acute patients, or with our Academic Health Division for all elective examinations in all medical issues. And with Radailogy we have a world premiere in our portfolio: Our online platform with which you can access the best medical artificial intelligence under the supervision of our medical specialists from anywhere in the world, every day of the year!

The most diverse AIs can be found and selected by means of simple queries, depending on the type of examination to be found. The simplest way to compare the process is with shopping in an app store: Doctors can compile the appropriate offer individually on the platform. The characteristics and the technical and medical-legal requirements for the use of each AI are presented and a hyperlink to the official websites of the AI manufacturers is also displayed for further information.

 

The choice of service is always displayed in detail to the doctor. As soon as the order is confirmed, the upload of the examination can begin.

 

DICOM examinations are uploaded as a ZIP file simply by dragging and dropping.

 

The specialist medical findings and/or the AI results are delivered to the doctors’ personal portal by noon of the next working day. Likewise, the invoices for the service provided can be accessed.

 

Bottom Line

Radailogy offers online up-to-date AI from global manufacturers for many medical specialties. The platform is highly secure, available every day of the year and easy to use. The reporting by Radailogists – specialists in AI – enables the combination of medical expertise and innovative AI technology. This is to ensure that the medicine of the future remains in human hands and at the same time all patients benefit from AI technologies that have already become reality, according to the motto: Artificial Intelligence under radailogical control.

Medical examinations are uploaded around the clock every day of the year at www.radailogy.com. At the request of the referring physicians, they are processed by an artificial intelligence application (AI) in addition to the specialist medical assessment. It is a world first: with its large team of radailogists, who are specialists trained in AI, Radailogy online offers its services 24/7 as a combination of medical expertise and the latest AI technology.

 

Radailogy is made by doctors for doctors. Radailogy’s mission is to ensure that doctors always retain responsibility for medical procedures and that they continue to have control over computer programmes. Doctors should not be replaced, the responsibility for patients should not be left to autonomous computing algorithms. Instead, AI should provide doctors with meaningful support in their daily work, so that the efficient interaction of human competence and new AI technology brings the best possible results for each patient.

 

Which AI are offered?

Radailogy continuously offers new and useful AI for medical use on its highly secure online platform. Probably also thanks to the radiological work of its inventor ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller, radiological AI can be found on www.radailogy.com at the beginning. The range of applications is constantly being expanded, with the focus on dermatology, internal medicine, pathology and other medical subjects.

 

What are the benefits of Radailogy for doctors?

The number of AI has simply become unmanageable in science and market introduction. Interested doctors and institutions are quickly overwhelmed with the evaluation of the desired AI on their own. Radailogy is an essential help here: With its own scouting team, new AIs are constantly being evaluated worldwide using its own test data. Radailogy accredits only those AIs that represent a substantial improvement in medical diagnostics and increase the efficiency of doctors. Every AI must be CE certified to be accepted by Radailogy.

It is a particular advantage of Radailogy that no doctor has to become a customer of a particular AI provider to use AI. Radailogy assumes the contractual obligations. And to use the platform, no contract with Radailogy is required. The services provided are charged according to the pay-per-use model already known from ERS teleradiology.

 

How does Radailogy work?

First, doctors are accredited by Radailogy to use the platform. This requires personal details and the upload of the medical certification. Doctors select one of currently four services:

At Combained, Radailogy doctors select the appropriate AI and the findings include the AI result.

With Defained, the referring doctors select a desired AI, which is then used by the radailogists to generate the findings.

Pure AI: If desired, AI results can also be queried without radailogical findings if the requesting physician is familiar with the desired AI.

Expert: It is also possible to have medical, mostly radiological examinations without the use of AI performed by the Radailogy team – also taking into account preliminary examinations. There is again no contractual obligation and the service can be requested 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

 

Conclusion and further benefits? Read on in part 2!

We at Emergency Radiology Schueller take criticism seriously. According to William Deming’s formula: Plan – Do – Check – Act, the customer evaluation of our teleradiological services has a very high priority. Read the results for 2020 here!

Nothing is more important to us than standing together with our customers. We at Emergency Radiology Schueller are grateful to have been able to maintain an excellent relationship with our customers for years. In addition, not only the constant, uncompromising radiological service at any time of the day or night over years as well as personal support during office hours on +41 41 544 60 80 are a basic requirement, but also “the very spontaneous readiness for action and flexibility, which is enormous in everyday life and in help to cope with emergency services “, as one of our Swiss customers, the Hirslanden Klinik Stephanshorn in St. Gallen, puts it. We received further praise from a customer from the Austrian capital Vienna: “As was to be expected, the teleradiological care provided by the company operated by Prof. Schueller works very well”. In an online survey we asked our customers only two questions: 1. what grade from one to ten would you give the teleradiological service of Emergency Radiology Schueller (10=very good)? 2. if you do not give a ten, what is missing on this grade ten? We received twenty answers, we received the grade ten 15 times, grades eight and nine twice and grade seven once. That made an average of 9.4 points. On the one hand, we are very proud of this result with testimonials such as: “We are very satisfied with the service of Emergency Radiology Schueller at Zofingen Hospital, I would give the service a 10 (Chief Physician Dr. Renate Engisch) and “…I think the Emergency Radiology Schueller system has now become well established in the Döbling Private Clinic (Prim. PD Dr. med. univ. Marius Wick). Nevertheless, we are doing our utmost to ask questions and optimise the results for grades seven to nine. An Austrian customer, for example, complained that “we are still dependent on the physical import of the reports into the HIS”. We were able to improve this quickly and easily with the now desired roll-out of our HL7 interface Diagnostic Gate, which is already established with almost all customers. This saves our customers valuable administration and time, because all our findings are not only accessible at any time in the PACS, but also in the RIS/HIS – and this in acute operation within one hour after the patient examinations have been transferred to us. We received further praise from the heads of a large institute for radiology in Switzerland: “The Emergency Radiology Schueller Academic Health Division supports us with consistently high quality in the important sub-disciplines of MSC, neuro-, body-, onco-, cardiac- and prostate radiology whenever we have a case-by-case need. The company shows that teleradiology does not mean zero or one, but should and can always be used when there is a need – even at short notice. Many thanks”. We may return the thanks!

Radailogy offers a future-oriented, highly secure online medical platform where medical professionals can use the world’s best AI software under the supervision of our Radailogy specialists. We at ERS Emergency Radiology Schueller are proud to present Radailogy to you!

 

As ERS Emergency Radiology Schueller, we have closely followed the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI). To this end, we have invested years of work in our telemedicine, teleradiology and IT and have served many hospitals, institutes and thousands of customers.

The reason we founded Radailogy is because people worry that AI would replace human competence in medicine and that patients would only receive computer-generated diagnoses and therapies.

But in reality, everyone can look forward to the support of AI. And doctors want to continue to work as well as possible in the future and help their patients decisively. With Radailogy, we at ERS Emergency Radiology Schueller would like to carefully enable this need.

Radailogy’s vision is simple: All medical professionals have access to the world’s best AI applications and our specialists, our Radailogy specialists, always have the upper hand in diagnosing all patients.

The Radailogy platform will cover many medical topics, including radiology, dermatology, pathology, internal medicine and many more. On this portal, we bring together the best experts and AI applications, worldwide.

Our recommendation for you is: Get certified on Radailogy now, free of charge, order our newsletter, browse our platform www.radailogy.com and give it a try. Find out how these many AI applications, together with our medical specialists, can help to improve medicine for all times. See you soon at Radailogy!

No more dreams of the future: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is finding its important place in medical diagnostics. Read part 3 of our report here!

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.

 

What is www.radailogy.com? Read more about it in our next report!

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!

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.

 

What is the benefit of a synergy between these two services? Read more in part 2!

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:

 

Attractive Remuneration

Teleradiology offers very attractive earnings. With the flexible work assignments, which you can choose independently, you have the opportunity to determine your earnings. In a hospital, you will usually work with a fixed salary, especially with a basic salary that is only moderately satisfactory. In Teleradiology, on the other hand, you will often work on a fee basis. The more you work, the better you can earn.

 

The location is not important

In general, the earning potential in conventional radiology varies depending on the location. In conurbations, the oversupply on the labour market means that pay is sometimes lower than in rural areas, to which specialist doctors can only be attracted by high incentives. In addition, demand for radiology is higher at certain locations than at others. This can become a pitfall, especially for radiologists who want to become self-employed. In frequented regions there are usually already a large number of radiologists. This makes it more difficult to establish a new practice. If you work for a Teleradiology provider, such as Emergency Radiology Schueller in German-speaking Europe, i.e. Switzerland, Austria and Germany, you do not have all these problems. The level of your income is independent of your personal location.

 

Great Expertise through a high Case Mix

We at Emergency Radiology Schueller serve a large number of hospitals, medical practices and radiological institutes. We offer our customers fast, reliable diagnostics with our experienced radiology specialists, who have many years of experience and are subspecialists in many areas of radiology: our Acute Division ERS provides accident and emergency diagnostics 24/7, and our Academic Health Division offers elective diagnostics with our focus on Musculoskeletal, Neuro-, Oncoradiology, Pediatric Radiology and Cardiovascular imaging. Our quality has earned our customers’ trust over many years.

 

If you work with us as a radiologist, you will have completed an intensive assessment center and a subsequent training program, and you will increase your expertise to new heights every day. You will help to provide the best in Teleradiology every day, so that we can make our contribution to society. Top quality for every patient, around the clock, without compromise. This is why Teleradiology at Emergency Radiology Schueller is so interesting for radiologists.

 

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.

 

Independent work

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.
