Teleradiology for Radiologists by Radiologists with Hexarad Co-Founders Dr Sam Dumonteil & Dr Amy Davis
In this episode we speak to Dr Sam Dumonteil and Dr Amy Davis, two of the co-founders of Hexarad, a teleradiology company set up by a group of radiologists who met as registrars on the St George's training scheme. They tell us about the proprietary tech systems that give them a competitive advantage and how they have become the most peer referred teleradiology company through really prioritising the health and well-being of their reporters, even sending everyone a monthly box of healthy snacks! As all of the Hexarad co-founders have "portfolio careers", we also discuss entrepreneurship in Radiology more generallyp. Please note that the Hexarad scholarship mentioned in this episode has now closed but will re-open next year.
