Founding of 247 Teleradiology Solutions and the Pain of Legacy Radiology Software
The limitations of legacy radiology software (RIS/PACS) were well-known to our founder, Dr. Eric Schulze. In 2003, Dr. Schulze co-founded, 24/7 Radiology, one of the first teleradiology companies in the United States. It grew to serve the requirements of 85 sites in the US with radiologist reading centers in Manila, Singapore, Bangalore, and Kolkata. Using the standard radiology software of the time, each reading center required an on-site data center filled with multiple rack-mounted blade servers and expensive Cisco routers and network appliances – representing over US$100,000 in sunk cost per site. Several full-time IT personnel had to be employed at each site to ensure reliable 24/7 uptime.
Founding of Lifetrack and the Birth of LifeSys™
In 2011, Dr. Schulze sold 24/7 Radiology to Alliance Imaging. He started Lifetrack Medical Systems and dedicated himself to rethinking how radiology software could be architected from the ground up to do truly distributed enterprise radiology while eliminating all the operational pain and financial costs he encountered at 24/7 Radiology. As a practicing radiologist, he was determined to create the most flexible but efficient platform that radiologists could use to support any workflow. With the advent of the cloud and browser era, Dr. Schulze architected the next-generation LifeSys™ RIS/PACS.
Launch of LifeSys™ in Radiology
LifeSys™ RIS/PACS is robust, secure, flexible, efficient, easy to deploy and easy to maintain. The hybrid cloud architecture of LifeSys™ ensures 100% uptime even in the challenging conditions of emerging markets, and provides lightning-fast access and redundancy in developed markets. LifeSys™ has received US FDA 510(k) approval (United States) and CE Mark registration (European Union).
LifeSys™ pilots in Cardiology and Ophthalmology
Since launching LifeSys™ RIS/PACS in late 2016, Lifetrack continues to innovate and advance the platform into other areas of medical imaging to bring the benefits of distributed enterprise software to other medical specialties.
