The steady development of ERS and Radailogy in the German-speaking market is accompanied by an ever-increasing media presence. The latest issue of ÖZK, the specialist magazine for managers in the German-speaking world, contains a brief update of all the news.
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.
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.
Teleradiology is also indispensable for general practitioners!

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.
Doctors from all over the world have recently been able to upload X-ray examinations or other medical documents to www.radailogy.com and have them examined with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). Either as an initial finding or as a second opinion to confirm or expand their own diagnosis. “What we are doing with Radailogy is a world first,” explains Gerd Schueller, founder of the Zug-based company Emergency Radiology Schueller, which launched the platform in October (see article Wirtschaft/Zuger Zeitung 29.12.2020).
