Medical imaging technology company Nanox announces that its wholly owned teleradiology subsidiary, USARAD Holdings, Inc., has been re-certified with The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval. This designation recognizes an organization’s commitment to providing high-quality and safe patient care based on ongoing compliance with The Joint Commission’s stringent criteria.
Following an unannounced inspection, USARAD passed in the ambulatory care category without any conditions, underscoring the company’s dedication to compliance and quality. USARAD was initially certified by The Joint Commission in 2009 and is considered among the longest continuously accredited telemedicine companies by The Joint Commission, in fact serving as an industry standard.
“We are extremely proud that our policies and procedures continue to safeguard patients and help ensure precise exam interpretation by meeting the quality standards of the most widely recognized medical credentialing program in the country,” says Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, founder and CEO of USARAD. “As we have expanded rapidly over the years, USARAD has maintained the high standards that have been its hallmark since the company’s inception and that have propelled its rapid growth. Today, quality, on-demand outsourced imaging exam reading remains a vital service as healthcare faces a growing radiologist shortage worldwide.”
Following its recent acquisition by Nanox, USARAD will be leveraging its network of hundreds of board-certified teleradiologists combined with artificial intelligence algorithms to help realize the shared vision of providing scanning-as-a-service and implementation of a worldwide end-to-end medical imaging solution leveraging the most advanced technologies and qualified talent, from exam acquisition through interpretation and results reporting.
As the new relationship progresses, the partners plan to work with imaging facilities throughout the world, including approximately 6,000 freestanding imaging centers and more than 10,000 urgent care clinics in the U.S. alone to help fill the gap in radiologist services wherever needed and to democratize the delivery of imaging care.
USARAD is a radiologist-run and operated company that interprets general and sub-specialty exams in all modalities via its Radiologist-On-Demand platform. Moreover, subspecialty interpretations are performed by fellowship-trained radiologists, often with additional certifications, including CAQs and subspecialty board diplomas.
