MEDICA NIGHTHAWK ticks all the boxes.  Leading consultant radiologists with NHS experience providing authoritative guidance out of hours, based on a full knowledge of history, examination and prior imaging – and all within 60 minutes. This includes an authorised report into your RIS so any clinician in the hospital has access to it.  This is fully equivalent to having one of your radiologists right there – and incisive, accurate diagnostics ALWAYS save your organisation money.

MEDICA NIGHTHAWK tackles cost pressures, as well as workload pressures, for hospitals that find on-call service delivery hard to sustain.  Leaving your colleagues awake and alert during their normal working day, looking after your patients, talking with your clinicians and offering an optimum diagnostic service, whatever the day throws at them.

Dr Jenny Maniyar, consultant radiologist and MEDICA NIGHTHAWK client, reported at UKRC that an audit of MEDICA outsourced reports over five months revealed that there had been no significant discrepancies.  Dr Maniyar had calculated that had in-house consultant radiologists done this overnight reporting, the hospital would have had to fund locum cover for elective radiology services the next day at a cost of over £17,000. Teleradiology reporting costs for the same period, however, were less than £8,000.
