THE TRUE SUB-SPECIALIST DIFFERENCE
We don’t just say ‘sub-specialist’, we mean it! For us, it all boils down to ‘unparalleled quality’.
TMC’s True Sub-Specialist Reporting means cases are always allocated to the most skilled and experienced radiologist, based not just on body areas and modalities, but also on special interests and ‘super sub-specialties’.
Our True Sub-Specialist Reporting System is made possible thanks to market leading technology, full-time case management team and RIS-RIS integration.
TMC’s medical management consists of three full-time sub-specialist radiologists, each of which manages the radiologists within in their sub-specialist team.
Knowledge sharing and peer-peer review within the teams improves our radiologists and benefits your clients and patients.
UNMATCHED ACCESS TO SUB-SPECIALIST CONSULTANTS
DURING THE DAY TO DISCUSS CASES
Unlike some teleradiology companies, TMC doesn’t just ‘report and run’. We believe a complete service includes easy access and ‘consultation’.
That’s why we we run a dedicated ‘contact desk’ during UK business hours, where three
sub-specialist consultant radiologists (one from each of the sub-specialist disciplines) take calls from referring physicians and local radiologists to review and discuss cases and reports in ‘real-time’.
Our goal to be a partner with your department, not just a service.
Working with Telemedicine Clinic (TMC) has been an absolute pleasure, even though we are a relatively small user of their services I do not think we could have been treated better. TMC worked with us to deploy a technical solution, tailored to our needs, in a very short time frame (7 weeks from my initial email enquiry to full implementation). The technical solution works well and the reporting is of a consistently high quality. TMC have been quick to respond to any technical or clinical queries raised. I would have no hesitation in recommending TMC to any imaging department in need of a reliable high quality Tele-radiology partner.

INDEPENDENTLY EXTERNALLY AUDITED
TMC is the UK’s only teleradiology company to employ independent external auditors, ensuring the greatest quality assurance on the market.
Our KPI of 2015 is to have 2% of our UK cases externally audited, in addition to our prospective and retrospective peer-review audits.
EXCEEDING THE NEW RCR RULES
FOR PEER REVIEW
The RCR has stated “All new RIS/PACS reporting systems installed after 2015 should include an integrated QA module” and departments should aim for systematic (peer-peer) feedback by 2018.
Because of unbelievable capabilities of our radiology platform Optemis™, TMC goes one better and undertakes prospective peer-review (second-reads before the final report allocation) of 30% of cases across the whole organisation.
We currently prospectively audit 90,000 cases per year, which is made easy by our bespoke software Optemis™.
TMC Optemis™ gives two-way feedback between the first and second readers, allowing a culture of on-going feedback, learning from mistakes and continuing radiologist education. TMC’s system based solutions has been developed over the past 10 years and is a recognised world quality leader for peer-peer feedback.
Why wait till 2018? TMC has implemented a target of 5% prospective peer review for all our UK clients this year. This is in addition to our retrospective audit.
EXCLUSIVE USE OF CONSULTANT RADIOLOGISTS,
NEVER TRAINEE REGISTRARS OR RADIOGRAPHERS
Experience counts! Don’t trust your patients’ lives to companies who use less qualified reporters for their own commercial interests.
The most comprehensive reports come from experienced, sub-specialist consultant radiologists and TMC never substitute with registrars or radiographers.
TMC has the strictest recruiting policies in the market, with over 15% failing our mandatory TMC Entrance Test.
This ensures only the ‘cream of the crop’ sub-specialist radiologists are allowed to put their name on the bottom of TMC reports.
