San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012
StatRad, a leading provider of premier, around-the-clock teleradiology solutions, announces today the appointment of Emily Crane as director of marketing and communications. Crane, who served as the former research director for KLAS, will work closely with StatRad’s sales and operations departments to ensure a cohesive marketing strategy that effectively targets both current and prospective customers.
“The entire StatRad team is pleased to welcome such a knowledgeable, well-rounded candidate,” said Joe Moock, managing partner of StatRad. “As a company solely centered on quality, Crane proved a perfect fit given her renowned expertise and unique insight regarding teleradiology’s future. Her unquestioned ability to communicate a creative vision is only enhanced by her extensive experience and dedication to staying at the forefront of industry trends.”
With over nine years of combined radiology and research experience, Crane brings an expansive skill set to StatRad’s marketing team. As a previous research director at KLAS, a firm which specializes in monitoring and reporting the performance of healthcare technology vendors, she closely examined the teleradiology, women’s imaging, x-ray, and ultrasound industries. In addition, she was the lead author of Radiologists’ Take on Meaningful Use: a KLAS-RSNA Report, a ground breaking study highlighting the need for clear, meaningful use guidelines across the industry.
Prior to her work with KLAS, Crane served as a senior radiology consultant specializing in physician placement at CompHealth. While in this position, she conferred with radiology groups and academic centers to hire new partners for permanent employment. Utilizing her professional experience for the common good, she works closely with Radiologists without Borders, a program founded by Dr. Tariq Gill which works to provide radiology equipment and services to third-world countries. Crane holds a bachelor’s degree in english and communications from Brigham Young University.
“I’m most looking forward to forging my research expertise with my passion for executing effective marketing and communication strategies,” said Crane. “It was of the utmost importance that I continue in my career path with an organization centered on enhanced patient care and customer service, and StatRad has continued to exhibit these qualities. My interactions with executives and feedback from StatRad customers have foreshadowed a fantastic experience and company culture.”
While StatRad has provided teleradiology coverage since 1995, it is the recent development of predatory practices by large teleradiology companies that has truly allowed the company and its services to stand out. Its forward-thinking software and workflow solutions are quickly adopted by clients and allow them to effectively compete in today’s challenging healthcare environment. As a premier teleradiology provider, StatRad helps clients save money, achieve efficiencies, satisfy hospital clients and maintain control.
StatRad’s reputation of excellence began in California, but the company now provides state-of-the-art teleradiology solutions to facilities throughout the United States and continues to establish valuable partnerships and penetrate new markets daily.
