Aligned with the needs of health systems.

  • Reduced length of stay (LOS) and conditional discharge delays

  • More informed diagnoses and treatment decisions at the right time, every time

  • Restored capacity gives local radiologists a competitive advantage against imaging centers


Radiology lies at the nexus of health system efficiency

  • Health systems are striving to deliver continuous, transparent, and reliable quality of care—and radiology is critical to success, as 12% of all referrals start with imaging [1]

  • Despite making up 50% of the Imaging Service Lines, X-ray has the lowest relative value unit of any imaging modality [2]

  • X-ray is costly, time-consuming, and under covered, with high liability and error rates

The demands of radiology are on the rise

  • Health system consolidation has accelerated the transition from radiology departments to Imaging Service Lines

  • These Imaging Service Lines are looking to take advantage of economies of scale to provide 24/7 final reports, subspecialty interpretation, and a single standard of care regardless of time of day or location

  • Radiologists are interrupted an average of once every 12 minutes during regular business hours—and even more frequently after hours. More than 75% of the interruptions required full disengagement from their primary task [5]


Elevating health system efficiencies. THAT'S OUR X-RAY VISION.
