About the initiative

The solution is specifically engineered to bring distributed radiology to emerging markets and adds value to existing healthcare providers by allowing them to extend the reach of their service areas.

Around the world, over six billion patients have little to no access to reliable, modern, affordable radiological diagnosis. Two issues handicap thousands of hospitals and clinics: the shortage of radiologists and the scarcity of technology that better utilizes existing radiologists. In remote areas and developing nations, the shortage of radiologists is staggering. In Indonesia alone, there are only 1300 radiologists for a massive population of 250,000,000. That’s one radiologist for every 200,000 people. In light of these challenges, Lifetrack introduces Lifesys™ RIS/PACS, featuring patented RadNav™ technology — tech that’s designed to make a sustainable social impact in the places that need radiologists most. It expands radiologists’ reach, without them ever leaving their clinics or cities. With RadNav™ technology, featuring integrated decision support and active templates, radiologists are trained as they work. Training/coaching and quality control are built into the system in a way that is intuitive and easy to use. t’s a tool for medical efficiency and accuracy. It’s a platform for capacity building.
