Sirona Medical has announced partnerships with radiology practices across the country to develop and bring to market RadOS, the company’s novel radiology operating system. Sirona will collaborate with five leading national practices, including California Advanced Imaging Medical Associates (CAIMA), Hackensack Radiology Group and Triad Radiology Group, among others. Together, these practices are responsible for nearly 2% of radiology reads in the United States, with an estimated total volume of 8.3 million studies across more than 100 facilities.
Designed to unify fragmented radiology IT systems, Sirona’s cloud-native platform aims to simplify workflow and boost the speed at which radiologists can read, diagnose and report. The fully integrated Workspace, embedded with machine learning tools, allows radiologists to focus on the image and patient diagnosis rather than managing disparate technological components. This saves radiologists time and supports the delivery of high-quality reports, essential to practice referrals and reimbursements.
“Radiologists have a rare combination of medical and technical acumen, yet the technology provided to us thus far has only slowed us down, increasing opportunity for errors and in turn, decreasing our overall job satisfaction,” said Jay Kaiser, MD, president, and medical director of CAIMA/North Orthopedic Imaging Associates (NOIA). “We’re incredibly excited to partner with Sirona, help develop the RadOS platform, and implement a solution that we believe will revolutionize the practice of radiology as we know it today.”
Sirona Medical was founded in 2018 to build a new kind of IT system for radiology – free of historical design limitations – that relieves the pressures radiologists face by unifying existing radiology IT applications, worklist, viewer, and reporter, into a single, radiologist-centric platform.
“For far too long, radiology IT vendors have operated in silos, forcing highly-skilled radiologists to spend more time wrestling with inefficient technologies than on improving patient care,” said Cameron Andrews, CEO of Sirona Medical. “Our platform enables radiologists to keep their eyes focused on the medical image, helping them uncover critical findings for faster diagnosis and better patient outcomes.”
“Radiologists readily embrace cutting-edge technology, yet vendors to date haven’t been able to solve our usability and workflow problems as we are still wrestling with siloed IT tools,” said Gregory Nicola, MD, Hackensack Radiology Group. “We need to replace existing radiology workflow tools for ones that allow us to view, read and report on medical images in a unified, adaptable and cloud-based format. If we are truly able to redefine the radiology workflow as we know through unified IT systems, it will be a game-changer for the industry at large.”Back To Top
