International Medical Solutions (IMS) and Envision Healthcare have signed an agreement to perform extensive pre-employment and ongoing testing for Envision's radiology and tele-radiology physicians using IMS Learn.
The FDA-cleared imaging technology enables physicians to engage in interactive, web-based assessments on any device using full fidelity DICOM images.
“The IMS Learn platform enhances our ability to work with our more than 1,000 radiology clinicians to assess their skills and provide them with the appropriate continuing medical education. In doing so, we’ll be able to retain and attract highly skilled clinicians who share our dedication to advancing the delivery of care,” said Glenn Kaplan, Vice President of Radiology Strategy at Envision Healthcare.
Envision Healthcare is a leading national provider of radiology services, including diagnostic, interventional and tele-radiology, for hospitals, imaging centers, and physician group practices. Its radiology teams interpret more than 10 million studies a year. Through a commitment to providing evidence-based care, Envision’s clinicians are constantly evaluating best practices and developing innovative solutions to help improve diagnostic accuracy and consistency as well as care quality.
“In our experience, hospital administrators and physicians are laser-focused on using technology that allows them to provide the right diagnoses for their patients. IMS Learn enables companies like Envision Healthcare to deliver exceptional training and continuing education programs to their radiologists,” said IMS Chief Technology Officer, Vittorio Accomazzi.
IMS is committed to ensuring exceptional care is being delivered to patients by well-trained radiologists across the country. This year, the organization has partnered with industry leaders like the American Society of Emergency Radiology and the American College of Radiology who have adopted IMS’ technology to provide testing and training for radiologists because the images are realistic, easily accessible, and hundreds of physicians can use the platform at the same time.
