One of the major Danish medical bulletins “Dagens Medicin” published a big article about Telemedicine Clinic (TMC) under the headline “The perfect Storm” at the end of September. (if you are curious to find out why this title, read on!)
“Dagens Medicin” visited the Barcelona office of Telemedicine Clinic on the 33rd floor of the emblematic Torre Mapfre and conducted an interview with CEO Henrik Agrell and Danish medical Advisor, TMC radiologist, Hanne Heeboell. The conversation went on for around 3 hours and many interesting topics were discussed.
The published article is a successor to several articles in the same newspaper about Telemedicine Clinic and the use of help for on-call services at night (amongst other topics). Furthermore the heads of department of 2 major radiological sites in Denmark were interviewed about the positive experiences with having their need for radiological services during the night covered by TMC. This information was also published in the same newspaper
The journalist visited the new Barcelona Office on the 33rd floor in Barcelona in late August 2022 with a wonderful view over the beautiful city and the sea and got an impression of the TMC services including the integration of AI solutions in our daily routine.
“The perfect Storm” refers to the fact that Telemedicine Clinic, as a major provider of teleradiological services in several European countries, including Denmark, Sweden and UK, has accelerated in growth due to the lack of radiologists in general and the increasing need for subspecialised radiologists because of the increasing complexity in diagnostic imaging.
The demand for TMC´s services is constantly growing and therefore TMC needs to hire more experienced radiologists, especially within oncoradiology, neurology and muskuletal radiology.
The demands are also increasing for “on-call” services for many hospitals including 10 Danish hospitals at present – where radiologists with authorization from Denmark, for example, can report emergency cases during the night-time – which is daytime in Australia.
Future plans for TMC include extending the TMC on-call services to more hospitals in Europe from new offices in New Zealand and Japan.
