With our teleradiology department at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller, we enable many people to have access to the latest radiological cutting edge diagnostics. In this way we help society to diagnose diseases earlier and better. At the same time, we ensure that every patient has a chance to receive the best possible therapy based on our assistance. As a teleradiological service provider, we make nationwide care possible through the efficient deployment of our specialist staff.

However, our teleradiology at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller offers advantages far beyond this: A very important aspect for us is climate protection. Nowadays there is a lot of discussion about how to save emissions and thus slow down climate change. Apart from industry, the transport sector accounts for a large proportion of emissions. Teleradiology can make a considerable contribution here. Even with our current products, the On Call Service for acute radiological use and the Elelective Service of our Academic Health Division, patients who are examined at our radiological partner institutes close to their homes only have to travel very short distances to their treatment. This is because the radiological examinations that are essential for therapy are assessed online by our specialist physicians in remote locations. The elimination of long journeys saves considerable cumulative CO2 emissions. Accordingly, we generate even greater effects, since our teleradiology is already used across national borders: Even long-distance and air travel by patients can be completely eliminated. Our technology makes no difference whether doctors and patients are in neighboring towns or several thousand kilometers apart. In addition, our medical personnel no longer have to travel to and from work: It is a specific feature of radiology in our neighboring country of Austria, for example, that radiologists report radiological examinations as independent substitute physicians after work as an employed physician in a hospital in the afternoon and evening or on days off in radiological institutes. This means that it is at least to some extent possible to provide the population with comprehensive care. But with the use of teleradiology, these medical official channels are no longer necessary, and the lower CO2 emissions also help to relieve the climate.

We are aware that the teleradiological services of ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller are part of the trend towards the general digitalisation of processes and services. Not only do we protect the climate, but with our first-class radiological reports we also provide substantial support for society – the starting signal for the individualized therapy of every single person. And we are helping to make tomorrow’s world a much better place.

Let’s talk seriously about teleradiology, an increasingly important component of patient care.

Why would you have such an important, highly qualified medical service created by one of the many start-ups with unclear staffing and questionable IT concepts when you can get the market leader in Switzerland and Austria to do it for you?

We at ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller have built up a large and consistent team of radiology specialists with long professional experience.

And we have created our patent-pending IT concept with the highest quality and highest availability. Because we take security and data protection very seriously.

Our customers know:

ERS can be relied on around the clock, every day of the year, for years:

With our acute On Call Service, we are always personally available for you via our telephone hotlines.

And our Academic Health Division provides top-quality reports for your elective X-ray, CT and MR examinations in all important sub-specialisations.

We are also cost-efficient. We were the ones who established the pay-per-use model.

You only pay for our diagnostic services. And nothing else.

It doesn’t help when people try to imitate us.

Because we are the original. We are always there for you when it comes to providing the best in teleradiology.

People rightly expect more and more from medicine. Radiology has a particularly important role to play because it is always at the forefront of patient care in providing quick and correct, groundbreaking answers.

Teleradiology is of great advantage here: it brings high expertise quickly to places where radiologists are not always available. At ERS – Emergency Radiology Schueller, we pool our radiological expertise and deliver first-class medical quality to all patients everywhere, around the clock.

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!

Around the clock, every day of the year, medical examinations are uploaded to www.radailogy.com, which are processed by an Artificial Intelligence (AI) application in addition to the specialist assessment at the request of the referring physician. It is a world first: with its large team of Radailogists, who are specialists specially trained in AI, Radailogy offers its service online 24/7 as a combination of medical expertise and the latest AI technology.

ZUG – In thousands of our Swiss medical practices, around ten million X-ray examinations are performed and diagnosed every year. Precisely because X-ray diagnostics is of considerable importance in patient treatment, the question is raised as to whether diagnostic assistance can be offered through the specialist opinion transmitted by teleradiology and the use of artificial intelligence.

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.
