At ERS, we first listen for a long time to our customers’ requirements and wishes. Then we create solutions: Together with XCOORP we have developed a generation of connectors – called “Diagnostic Gate”.

Diagnostic Gate can be quickly and easily integrated into the PACS/RIS/KIS landscape of our customers. This small hardware system is connected to the existing infrastructure via HL7 and DICOM. Diagnostic Gate transmits the patient data via VPN/IPsec directly and is highly encrypted to our ERS/XCOORP data centres.

With this in-house development and the use of state-of-the-art technologies, we can now offer the connection to our teleradiology network free of charge for all customers – whether individual practices, institutes, or hospital holding companies. This means that from now on you only pay “pay-per-use”, i.e. only our reporting of your studies!

ERS, as the leading private teleradiology provider in Switzerland and Austria, is in a strong position to support other hospitals and institutes suffering from professional shortages.

ERS currently offers its service to nearly 20 hospitals in German-speaking countries. “We are set up to cope with high capacities. It is precisely because of this that we are able to offer our staff a high caseload – the be-all and end-all for producing consistent top quality. We remain wide awake and are always growing,” confirms Gerd Schueller, founder of ERS.

A corresponding campaign was launched in October 2017. ERS learns through a multitude of personal conversations with radiological and economic decision-makers what enormous difficulties have to be mastered in the respective health markets – and offers their cooperation. “As soon as our prospective customers realise how determined we are to offer our service and which radiological and technical solutions we can provide individually, the advantages of our service become immediately clear,” adds Michael Peck, responsible for all IT services at ERS.

Innovation and technology are among the markets of hope in the health economy, as a recent study underlines.

Under the aegis of the Weitmoser Circle, of which ERS is a member, the first results of a study conducted by Deloitte among medical executives show that telemedicine is considered to be of particularly high importance in future cost optimisation and benefit enhancement in medical organisations. The first study results were presented on 17 November 2017 during the annual meeting of the Weitmoser Circle. The research was conducted to identify processes and levers for increasing efficiency in health economics among medical managers of hospitals.

The study also shows that the user-friendliness of IT applications is the lever with the greatest estimated effectiveness for increasing efficiency in the hospital sector.

For us at ERS, the study results mean,

1) we are on the right track to sustainably improve the medical landscape with our services
2) that our IT solutions are already very user-friendly. Our independently developed IT tool XTIS enables us to transfer our findings fully EDPG/eGA/ELGA-compliant into the RIS/KIS systems of our customers.

What if you could improve the diagnostic quality and utilization of your existing CT scanners without incurring the high cost associated with replacing them and refurbishing the CT suite? Using Deep Learning technology PixelShine can automatically enhance and harmonize the image quality of studies acquired by any CT scanner at the lowest possible dose – extending the life of older scanners and deferring costly and disruptive replacement projects. You find this exceptional opportunity on our AI platform Radailogy. It has a substantial impact on the traditional revenue stream of hospitals and imaging providers.

New deep learning CT scan processing software is now available through Radailogy that can help everyone overcome the limitations of Iterative Reconstruction. PixelShine from AlgoMedica automatically improves the quality of any CT scan by reducing image noise without reducing the conspicuity of fine details. It improves the image quality of CT studies acquired at any dose level, to make lower dose scanning possible for all CT studies. In addition, PixelShine is vendor neutral; so it works with all CT scanners, regardless of the vendor, including older and refurbished systems.
