Telemedicine Clinic (TMC) is Europe’s leading teleradiology provider. TMC pioneered teleradiology services in Europe when it was founded in 2002 and has since become a vital partner for more than 100 radiology departments in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, UK, Spain and Germany. This year, our team of more than 120 highly specialised radiologists will report more than a quarter of a million cases, making a significant positive impact in the life of hospital staff and patients.
This is a book about our culture. About who we are, why we do what we do, and how we go about it. Our culture is the most precious asset our company has. In the long run, it will be our culture that determines our success. We need to preserve it and develop its strengths. We do not invent our culture with this book. We only document our existing culture and make it explicit. This book is a communication tool.
At the heart of our culture are our core purpose and our core values. Our core purpose reminds us why we are in this business. Our core values describe how we do things at TMC, the behaviours we need to consistently demonstrate in our daily work. We also explain the beliefs that lead us to hold and promote these specific values.
Common purpose and values create alignment, focus and help us make the right choices—in big and in small matters. All our decisions need to respect and reflect the philosophy expressed in this document.
We wrote this book for us, the team members of TMC. But we happily share our thoughts with clients, partners, vendors and people interested in working with us, hoping they hold us accountable to what we claim on these pages.
