NightShift Radiology Launches NightWatch Web-based Tracking and Management Tool

NightShift Radiology, a national, on-call teleradiology practice, announced the launch of NightWatch, a tracking and management application that enhances visibility in the exam process and improves productivity. The proprietary, web-based technology enables authorized users to efficiently monitor real-time status of exams through final report delivery. With NightWatch, clients can also share interpretive data, as well as print radiology and administrative reports on-demand.

"The ability to analyze the progression of exams in real-time complements our clients' ability to improve patient care and workflow," said Dr. Michael Myers, co-founder of NightShift. "Our NightWatch system was developed in response to our clients' desire for better control and transparency to stay informed. This tool is a reflection of our commitment to support and protect their needs by providing complete transparency of our work, and we're not stopping here. We plan to refine NightWatch's functionality on an ongoing basis to meet evolving client requirements."

NightShift Radiology's broad network offers on-call teleradiology services and support to radiology practices nationwide. The company's unique business model emphasizes the establishment of strong relationships to create long-term business partnerships that benefits clients.

NightWatch's intuitive interface provides information, including:

  • Patient identification
  • Name of hospital/practice
  • Date of exam
  • Assigned radiologist
  • Exam status

In addition to NightShift's standard reporting practices, the user-friendly NightWatch system provides instant access to reports for more control and greater flexibility. For ease of use, password-protected access to NightWatch can be granted to individual users or groups, so reports can be reviewed at any time.
