Ever wonder how long teleradiology has been with us? One of the earliest companies just celebrated its 10th anniversary.
NightShift Radiology, based in San Francisco and Chicago, remains independently-owned and operated by radiologists after a decade of providing on-call teleradiology services nationwide.
This year, the company expanded the number of clients and facilities by about 20 percent with more than 2 million reports under its belt, according to a company press release, and employs 21 radiologists.
Co-founder Michael Myers MD, says teleradiology was in its infancy 10 years ago and made up of smaller, regional practices. As consolidations took over, Myers says NightShift bucked the trend and remained committed to customer support, based on a press release.
