THE HEXARAD RADIOLOGY PLATFORM

SOLVING THE KEY ISSUES FACING RADIOLOGY TODAY

RADIOLOGIST LED RADIOLOGY

The Hexarad Platform gives healthcare providers the building blocks to optimise their radiology resources, as well as connecting them to a network of radiologists to get their scans reported quickly and accurately.

OUR STORY

Hexarad was founded by four doctors, training to be radiologists, who wanted to solve an ongoing and worsening problem in radiology - too many scans and not enough radiologists. Our passion for getting the best possible results, coupled with innovative thinking, makes us a solution-focused company.

Even though the founding team think in different ways, what brought us together were our shared values and the vision that things could be better. We believe the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and that we will have the greatest impact by working together.

The radiology sector is severely over-stretched and under-resourced. By working together to help bridge the gaps we know we can make a difference. Our goal is to create a community where every person feels valued and where a collaborative relationship with our customers results in improved patient care.

New referrers have been impressed with their reports and insist now on their work being reported by Hexarad. It has been a wonderful, easy relationship.

They have been an extremely valuable resource, as a stand-alone Imaging Centre, they have provided us with clear, concise protocols and same-day reporting.

Christelle Botha

At Hexarad I feel respected as a peer, like I am part of the solution rather than a cog in the machine, they take an active interest in me and the wellbeing of the team.

They are responsive, receptive to innovation and I am listened to, which means I feel very much involved. It's like joining a like-minded radiologist family rather than a corporate organisation.
