Virtual Radiologic, a large radiology practice known as vRad, is making selected data in its clinical database of 22 million imaging studies available to anyone who comes to the site to analyze and benchmark their own radiological performance.

The service, called RPC (Radiology Patient Care) Indices, is available for free to radiology groups, hospitals, delivery systems and researchers, regardless of whether they are clients of vRad, with unrestricted use of the data that will be available. In the era of accountable care, Jim Burke, CEO of vRad, says the company is taking this step “because it’s the right thing to do to elevate radiology as a valued partner.” The company has more than 450 radiologists and adds about 600,000 imaging studies to its database each month.
