“We’ve conducted seven radiology quality audits across four provinces, for ministries of health, hospital networks and physician insurance organizations,” said Dr. Nadine Koff, a radiologist and President of Real Time Medical. “We know that performance varies not only by individual, but also by exam type and sub-speciality. It’s for this reason that our system, unlike so many others, provides for per user, per subspecialty, anonymized and individualized peer learning and review.”
