National Radiology Group Partners with Imaging Platform Company to Premiere Newest Offering’s and MetisMD’s partnership began with a cardboard box. Or, rather, the many cardboard boxes that constructed's impressive booth display at the American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives Annual Conference.   


Attendees and exhibitors alike were struck by the unique design (see the picture on the right). Dr. Gregory Goldstein, Founder and CEO of MetisMD and Jeffery Adler, Company Advisor at MetisMD were at a nearby booth having their headshot photos taken when they noticed the cardboard furniture and walked over to begin a conversation. 


“The cardboard boxes got a lot of attention,” says Larry Monteith, VP of Business Development at “We had a lot of people coming up to us just to ask about the booth itself.” 


During their brief but impactful conversation at the Annual Conference, they quickly realized that their products complemented each other so perfectly, it was as if fate (in the form of a cardboard box display) had drawn them together.  


MetisMD provides teleradiology services and second opinion for patients and orthopedic facilities (see a picture on the left of the Giving Wall MetisMD sponsored at the 2018 Annual Conference to support the conference charity, Give Kids the World). MetisMD has also introduced Rad to the Bone, the first on-demand orthopedic radiology service. is an easy, convenient, and HIPAA-compliant method for saving and sharing medical images on the Cloud.  


When Adler and Goldstein watched a demo of, they saw the potential synergies that could exist between both companies. 


Goldstein shares that the proverbial light bulb went off almost immediately after seeing the demo. “After we saw how easy, clean, and sophisticated their product was, we could see ourselves using itPatients and doctors will use to upload medical images, and MetisMD can look at those images to provide expert consultation.” 


Goldstein explains that many times when they’re meeting with physicians or administratorsthey will ask MetisMD to do test readings before they begin working together. Now, physicians and administrators can use’s technology to upload medical images for MetisMD to create sample reports for them to “try before they buy.” 


Adler says this is a game changer when introducing MetisMD to physicians and orthopedic groups. “In healthcare, our top priority is to put the patient at the center of everything we do.  When we do this, good things happen.  This partnership has the potential to do just that.” had not yet launched when they exhibited at AAOE’s 2018 Annual Conference, but recognized the opportunity for feedback from administrators and C-level leaders. “We were really just testing the waters to see how attendees would respond to our product,” Monteith explains.  


This decision proved successful not only in gaining critical user feedback but also in connecting with MetisMD, something they couldn’t have anticipated. 


This year the two companies will return to the event where it all began, AAOE’s Annual Conference, taking place May 5-8, 2019 in Nashville, TN. They will exhibit at a combined booth, which is sure to be a show-stopper after last year’s unique display!
