MINNEAPOLIS, Jan 8, 2009 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) -- KLAS, a leading independent research firm focused on the healthcare industry, has ranked Virtual Radiologic Corp. the Category Leader in the Teleradiology Services category in its 2008 "Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards" report.
"We are proud to achieve the Category Leader ranking from KLAS, particularly since the ranking measures performance based on customer surveys and interviews," said Sean Casey, chief executive officer of Virtual Radiologic. "The rating validates the success of our efforts to provide clients the highest levels of service and quality patient care possible."
Virtual Radiologic's teleradiology solutions address a growing problem in the healthcare industry -- the shortage in the number of radiologists to meet increasing demand for diagnostic imaging services. Using proprietary workflow software and a 24/7-staffed operations center, the Company's radiologists provided over 2.2 million diagnostic interpretations last year with a monthly average emergent turnaround time of approximately 17 minutes.
