StatRad, a leading provider of cloud-based medical image exchange technology and teleradiology services, has added Chris Hafey and Claude Hooton to its board of directors. The announcement comes as the company prepares to exhibit at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 Annual Meeting and continues to strategically transform its focus from being a teleradiology company to a health care technology organization focused on improving patient care.
