Can your teleradiology company keep up with demand?
Supply versus Demand
The demand for teleradiology is reaching an all-time high. Some companies are struggling to keep up with their current customers, let alone bring on new clients. These companies are finding it hard to continue to produce the same quality, timely results they promise. When companies reach their breaking points, patients are the ones that suffer.
A decline in quality has caused many firms to jump ship and search for other firms to help provide the high-quality results they need. Many firms have limited capacity to take on new clients because they only have so many radiologists, and their current radiologists are hitting their capacity for reads.
If you are going to change, change early – don’t wait around for bad service. Do your research now to make sure the company you choose will be able to handle your demand in one year, three years, and five years. Find a provider that has the capacity to take care of your needs before someone else takes that spot. If you find a company that you like, take advantage of it now because the opportunity might not be there in six months
