ABOUT US

Passionate about teleradiology

OUR STORY

Direct Diagnostic Alliance (DDA) was formed in 2010 due to the recognition that healthcare providers need a teleradiology company that can deliver qualitative diagnostic imaging services in the most efficient way. A wide access to sub-specialist radiologists, technical and administrative staff, combined with efficient workflows, represents our operations.

Already in 1996 we started working teleradiology, and in 2004 the company that later became DDA in 2010 was one of the pioneers in the field of teleradiology. Currently the company has more than 30 specialists in diagnostic radiology and manages approximately 100,000 readings annually. High diagnostic quality, reliability and high level of service have always characterised the company.

With a team of carefully selected radiologists, talented IT technicians and skilled support staff, we are committed to teleradiology excellence.

OUR TEAM

DDA consists of two co-founders and executive managers to form a cohesive team with an absolute focus on quality and value. Non-executive managers were handpicked to provide substantial knowledge and experience from the fields of medical, finance, marketing, accounting and business management across a number of market sectors.
