Direct Radiology Reports Year-Over-Year Growth as Company Celebrates Fifth Year in Business

05/16/2016

COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO – Direct Radiology, a leading provider of teleradiology solutions to radiologists and radiology groups throughout the United States, today announced company growth statistics including new site go-lives, caseload volume and company employment growth. This growth comes as the company celebrates its fifth year in business.

From Q1 2015 to Q1 2016, Direct Radiology’s case volume more than doubled. Even from Q4 2015 to Q1 2016 alone, the company saw a 14 percent case volume increase, setting the stage for continued success throughout the year. In regards to new site go-lives, the company experienced an 87.5 percent increase from Q1 2015 to Q1 2016.

This business growth is backed by a growing landscape within the company itself. In 2015, Direct Radiology hired ten new employees and 12 new radiologists. So far in 2016, the company has hired two employees and nine new radiologists with four additional new hires approved for the coming months.  

Just over five years ago, Direct Radiology Founders Drs. John Arias, Lawrence Bub and Kyle Henneberry met while working with NightHawk Radiology. The three radiologists came together to form a teleradiology partnership with the goal of building a long-term, fulfilling teleradiology practice for its physicians while providing outstanding patient care and exceptional service to its clients.

“We are excited and thankful for the successes Direct Radiology has experienced thus far. Our model is designed by radiologists, for radiologists, making us highly invested stakeholders who are truly devoted to our customers success,” said the Direct Radiology founders in a joint statement. “Good medicine is good business and by returning the focus to the fundamentals of patient care, quality and customer service, we look forward to the opportunity to work with radiology groups across the U.S. to meet the needs of healthcare today.”
