Important Report Update - Customize NationalRad Services to Meet Your Needs

We at NationalRad - from our office staff and IT team to each of our radiologists - work hard to ensure that we meet our customers' needs, as well as patients' needs. We understand that many patients have certain or special circumstances pertaining to their case that may affect their handling and course of treatment. Please take the opportunity to share those details with us so that we can best serve you and our mutual patients.

For example, we read numerous work comp scans for our customers. Providing particular details about a patient's work comp injury is critical for our office staff and radiologists. As such, in our Patient Information Sheet, we have included spaces to identify a patient's work comp injury and provide the pertinent information.

Whether a work comp injury, liability case, or some other unique situation, please keep us informed to serve you and the patient best. Completing the Patient Information Sheet is a great start. Calling us at 877.734.6674 and speaking with one of our customer service representatives is also an excellent way to ensure the important information is received and transferred to the reading radiologist. Please never hesitate to pick up the phone!

Happy 10th Anniversary to Two NationalRad Veterans!

This month, Karen Jodat, NationalRad's Chief Operating Officer, and Kerry Margolies, NationalRad's Information Technology (IT) Assistant, are celebrating 10 years with NationalRad - and longer with NationalRad partners Michael B. Zlatkin, MD, FRCPC and Cary J. Hoffman, MD. They all worked together at a multi-center diagnostic imaging chain for which the partners read for several years leading up to 2002, at which point the imaging center chain was sold and Karen and Kerry moved over to join NationalRad.

Karen and Kerry have worked directly with most, if not all, of NationalRad's customers over the past 10 years. Karen is responsible for all aspects of NationalRad's daily operations. Kerry transitioned from her original role as transcription manager to IT support in 2010, when NationalRad moved to voice recording. Now she assists customers with IT implementation, account set up and IT troubleshooting.

Please join us in celebrating Karen's and Kerry's 10th and congratulating them! We thank them for their lasting commitment to NationalRad and to NationalRad's customers.
