RADS: A one-stop shop for healthcare institutions seeking Radiology coverage

our core principles

Rads, Inc.* is a physician owned and operated company founded in 2002.  In the early years, our goal was to bring university-style care to areas far from urban centers. In order to accomplish this, it was necessary to streamline every facet of our radiology practice.  This streamlining has helped us attract a group of very talented physicians and to expand towards the urban center. In the process, we have found that larger, suburban and urban facilities also benefit from our work model.

We bring our passion for radiology to every hospital we cover--often elevating the overall standard of care for the entire facility. We do this by providing our referring clinicians with accurate, as well as timely diagnostic imaging reports. Learn more about our unique, streamlined workflow-- what we call Concierge Radiology--below.

“Rads philosophy mandated the highest level of respect and customer satisfaction”
       
Richard Aldred, Senior Deputy Director, Retired

“The fundamental measures of a radiology group are the quality and completeness of their reports and the time to produce them. Rads delivers in these core competencies consistently.”

David Bowlsby, Current DI Manager

“Rads quality, efficiency and professionalism are the best in the business”

accurate reporting

All of our physicians are subspecialty-trained and ABR certified. Many of us were raised and educated in Northern California and are currently raising our own families here. We have a vested interest in the well-being of our local communities.

We pride ourselves on the accuracy and relevancy of our diagnostic reports. We understand that clinicians need reports that convey a maximal amount of information in the most concise yet understandable form. All of our radiologists have undergone a rigorous educational process--training at  internationally recognized medical centers such as Stanford University, UC San Francisco, University of Southern California, UC San Diego, UC Davis, Massachusetts General/Harvard and Emory University, among others. We recognize that education is a life-long process and so actively encourage and reward our physicians pursuit of Continuing Medical Education.

Accurate reporting is further promoted by our rigorous Quality Assurance process. We have created our own secure, proprietary dashboard program, Rads SYNC, to track and provide immediate feedback for potential QA issues. More on SYNC below.

timely reporting

Our turnaround times are among the best in the industry: Emergency Room TATs of 14 minutes and non-emergent imaging TATs of 20 minutes. At one of our largest trauma centers, for example, our turnaround times have routinely outpaced all other facilities in the west coast division of a major healthcare operator.  While we have impressive turnaround times, we never forget to focus on patient care and comfort.

Our secure image viewing/reporting and dashboard programs are  HIPAA-compliant. We view images in non-lossy (uncompressed) form using only medical-grade diagnostic displays. We use redundant, secure network lines protected by Cisco fire-wall appliances. In the event of a power outage, some of our offsite bunkers have emergency electrical generators or power walls.

We have found that the key to streamlining workflow in a growing radiology group is effective communication among radiologists.  The goal: synchronize workflow across the entire group, regardless of the radiologists location, whether it be hospital, imaging center or offsite bunker.  To accomplish this, Rads developed a web-based, HIPAA compliant software program for our sites that we call "SYNC".

SYNC is a STAT Dashboard program that is used to ensure continuous, lapse-free coverage of critical cases. SYNC has the  capability of tracking Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as turnaround time, QA, and critical values. It is used as a communication and consultation tool, allowing us to have ready availability of subspecialist input on difficult cases. Lastly, SYNC functions as a library and encyclopedic information source.
