PITTSBURGH –JULY, 20 2010 – Pittsburgh-based Foundation Radiology Group (FRG), a premier provider of high-quality, diagnostic imaging professional services, is proud to announce its strategic partnership with Acusis, a national provider of outsourced medical transcription services for hospitals, clinics and physician practices.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Acusis delivers healthcare solutions that are designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of medical practitioners by consistently delivering high-quality transcriptions within predefined turnaround times.

“We are proud to partner with a company that is making positive changes to the landscape of healthcare,” said Ray Dyer, CEO, Acusis. “FRG is changing the way that radiology services are delivered, and we are happy to help them bring an even higher quality product to their clients.”

FRG brings the subspecialty expertise of a highly-skilled team of radiologists to community hospitals using a combination of on-site radiology and teleradiology services. These services allow smaller, rural hospitals to offer the same level of expertise as larger, urban hospitals and to keep funds in their local medical communities.

“From our point of view, this partnership has several key benefits,” said Tom Skelton, CEO, FRG. “First and foremost, the Acusis model allows us to provide our valued partners with a higher quality, final report. Increasing the quality of what we do is always a topmost priority for us. In addition, this collaborative relationship with Acusis enables our radiologists to focus their time and energy on the diagnostic aspect of radiology, without the added strain of editing reports. It’s about working smarter in order to better serve our clients and their patients – and this partnership will help us to do that.”

Both organizations look forward to building on their partnership for collaborative successes in the future.
