XMRI.com and WORLDRAD.com, subsidiaries of leading national outsourced radiology solutions provider USARAD.com, announce a partnership with Egypt-based telemedicine company TELEMED PROVIDERS to promote these specialized subsidiaries throughout the Middle East.
XMRI.com is an innovative medical imaging second opinion service that enables patients to directly obtain expert, rapid reading of their imaging exams over the Internet. The service uses a fully automated Radiology-On-Demand™ platform that enables easy upload of all imaging modalities. These are interpreted by USARAD.com’s network of board certified fellowship-trained sub-specialty radiologists in the U.S.
WORLDRAD.com is the company’s international division, which provides professional teleradiology services around the world to imaging and other medical practices experiencing a shortage of qualified radiologists similar to the gap in the U.S. market a decade ago. WORLDRAD.com capitalizes on the same highly qualified network of radiologists and advanced imaging technology as XMRI.com to ensure state-of-the-art image reading.
One of the Middle East’s leading teleradiology companies, Telemedproviders.com is a similar Internet-based venture combining the most advanced Internet telemedicine platform with highly qualified radiology talent. In particular, it delivers sub-specialty teleradiology exam interpretation for imaging providers and other physicians in geographic areas in need of physicians with this high level of specialized training. Based on its 7 years of business experience, Telemedproviders.com is widely recognized for its excellence of service and innovative use of technology.
“Many areas of the Middle East are struggling with the same severe shortage of radiologists, particularly sub-specialists, as was the U.S. some time ago. Patients may wait weeks for the results of an imaging exam,” comments Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, CEO of USARAD.com and all its subsidiaries. “Telemedproviders.com is committed to filling the gap with the most advanced services and technology. This new partnership to promote XMRI.com and WORLDRAD.com will enable them to deliver a more robust solution with a greater range of physicians than before. Telemedproviders.com has had a long term presence in this area and enjoys a reputation of top-of-the-line medical care.”
“We sought to partner with a broad-based, experienced imaging resource that shares a similar commitment to patient service and a facility with the latest technology to ensure rapid exam turnaround time,” says Zaheer Abbas, CEO of Telemedproviders.com. “We were extremely impressed with the operations of both XMRI.com and WORLDRAD.com and look forward to partnering with the two companies for the benefit of our clients and our mutual growth and success.”
In addition to online services, TELEMED PROVIDERS will also be available to provide local services including accepting exams on CD/DVD from local patients and providing translation of reports into Arabic.
“A partnership with Telemedproviders.com will enable WORLDRAD.com to connect with local hospitals, clinics and other medical practices and rapidly penetrate a new market,” comments Dr. Yuz. “At the same time, Telemedproviders.com has the existing visibility with patients directly to help drive out second reading service in the area.”
