City-based Teleradiology Solutions, the country's first and largest teleradiology healthcare company with a strong global presence, was picked as one of the examples of Innovative Entrepreneurship in India and showcased to US President Barack Obama during his recent visit.

Teleradiology Solutions Co-Founder Sunita Maheshwari was invited by the US Consul to be a part of a select group of India-based entrepreneurs to meet Obama and share their experiences of innovative US-Indian business partnerships, a company release said here today.

When Maheshwari told Obama that they cover the night shift of a 100 US hospitals from Bangalore and use technology to deliver health care globally, he said "That is incredible, keep up the great work".
Teleradiology Solutions CEO and innovator Arjun Kalyanpur said: "It was a real honour for our company to be chosen to meet the President of the United States. We are proud to have created a high quality innovative healthcare organisation that India can be proud of."
Teleradiology Solutions has provided teleradiology services (i.E. CT, MRI, X-ray reports) to over three million patients globally  -- in the United States (100 hospitals), Singapore (11 hospitals), Canada, Puerto Rico, Croatia, Georgia, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany and the Maldives.
It was the first organisation outside Singapore to be accredited by the Ministry of Health, Singapore, the release said.
It was recently rated among the top three US teleradiology firms by the 2010 Klas survey.
Through its Telerad Foundation, it provides high quality tele-diagnostics to remote parts of India such as Ramakrishna Mission Hospital in Arunachal Pradesh, where there are patients and scanners but no doctor to interpret the images, it said.
