Virtual Radiologic and Lakeland Radiologists Partner to Create Lakeland Radiology Alliance
Date:3/3/2011

CHARLESTON, Ill., March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual Radiologic (vRad), a technology-enabled national radiology practice, and Lakeland Radiologists, Ltd., a Central Illinois-based radiology practice serving Champaign/Urbana, Effingham, Danville and surrounding areas, announced the launch of a strategic alliance, merging Lakeland with an affiliated medical practice of vRad. The practice will be called Lakeland Radiology Alliance, and will offer Lakeland facilities greater access to subspecialists, next-generation technology, clinical data benchmarking and the shared expertise of over 325 radiologists nationwide. The collaborative effort will enhance the quality and efficiency of imaging services for the hospitals and patients Lakeland serves.

Lakeland is a multisite practice that has operated for over 30 years. The practice is currently comprised of 15 radiologists serving four regional hospitals and numerous affiliated and freestanding clinics across 500 square miles. "As we looked at growth of our practice and the changing landscape of the healthcare industry, we had to find more efficient ways to meet the increasing demands for our services," said Dr. Aldo Ruffolo, Lakeland's medical director. "We had been providing traditional onsite radiology for years, which was becoming increasingly challenging in our broad geography without a fully integrated teleradiology solution," he added. "We had three different PACS systems and needed a unified work list across all sites with access to subspecialty coverage, especially for our smaller critical-access hospital customers."

While weighing the cost and associated risk of new technology and additional staffing, Lakeland approached vRad initially for their industry-leading Enterprise Connect technology, the core platform vRad uses to manage and read more than 7 million studies annually from 2,700 facilities. The technology is especially beneficial to a practice like Lakeland where radiologists work across
