You want standards generated in a manner where these kinds of innovations become more accessible and the ability to integrate them into the EHR has a lower barrier to entry. That’s the goal — but how you do it is very complicated. From a business perspective and a care perspective, you’re seeking commonalities and opportunities that will be helpful to all.
HCB News: Does your research change the overall understanding of teleradiology in any way?
People should understand that teleradiology is an important tool. When it first came into healthcare there were a lot of concerns about how that tool might be utilized. Many saw it as potentially providing a way for large entities to hurt practices in a way that had not been seen before, but that’s not the way, in general, this has played out at all.

Teleradiology has been very useful in helping smaller groups where they may have a unique need, and to fill that gap in a way that is economically feasible. Larger providers have worked hard to fill a niche that is all about quality of care, and business should follow, and it’s been synergistic with private practice groups that are on the ground. It has been an overwhelmingly symbiotic relationship. Back to HCB News
