NightShift Radiology

By Cheryl Hall Harris, R.N., contributing writer

November 9, 2007 -- (Booth 6751) NightShift Radiology will use this year's RSNA show to highlight its approach to image transmission, which uses a virtual private network (VPN)/data center that offers triple data encryption standard (DES) algorithms to protect privacy and meet HIPAA regulations.

The Montara, CA, company features U.S.-based board-certified and experienced radiologists, most of whom have received subspecialty fellowship training. NightShift has interpreted nearly 1 million cases to date, providing on-call coverage service overnight, with direct access to radiologists at a personalized, dedicated phone number for a hospital's medical staff, including the emergency department. The company believes that its approach enables direct conversations between referring physicians and their radiologists with no intermediaries.

Look for NightShift Radiology to tout their installation of AT&T data lines between client facilities and its data center to support image management that is secure, fast, and reliable, according to the company.
