What Makes real radiology Different From Other Teleradiology Companies?
Service, technology, and customer satisfaction. These are just a few of the most important elements you want covered during your search for your perfect teleradiology partner. With REAL Radiology, you don’t have to look far. We’ve compiled our key points of differentiation below.
The Benefits of Teleradiology
Teleradiology is revolutionizing the practice of medicine, leading to greater efficiency, time saving, and quality of life improvement. Through groundbreaking technological advances, imaging scans can be electronically transmitted from the patient’s examination site to the interpreting radiologist’s location. As such, accurate reporting and timely consultations are possible regardless of the distance between the referring physician and the radiologist or the time of day.
More specifically, here are some key benefits of teleradiology services:
Accelerated Diagnostics & Better Patient Care
Teleradiology facilitates a near-instantaneous visualization of medical imaging scans. If done properly, a radiologist can interpret images and report the results to the referring physician swiftly and accurately. In turn, the referring physician can quickly access the imaging information needed to diagnose the patient, thus allowing the patient to begin treatment sooner.
Readily Available Specialist Expertise
Medical practices often face shortages in their in-house radiology team, particularly during night shifts and holidays. What’s more, the scope of radiology varies greatly, and different expertise is often needed to interpret imaging studies from different modalities, such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, PET scans, mammograms, and more. In these scenarios, teleradiology serves as an effective stop-gap.
Reduced Travel & Staffing Costs
Teleradiology allows radiologists to work remotely—from virtually anywhere—without compromising the quality of the reporting. By eliminating the need for the reading radiologist to travel to the location where the patient’s images were captured, teleradiology also eliminates any costs associated with that travel. Additionally, health care organizations such as hospitals, emergency rooms, radiology groups, multispecialty practices, and urgent care clinics can save by not having to hire a staff of full-time radiology specialists.
Improvements Across All Health Care Settings
Because teleradiology solutions are web-based, their geographical reach is essentially limitless. This means that all health care organizations, no matter how rural or remote their location, can benefit from easily accessible and highly refined radiology expertise.
By expediting the delivery of medical information that is crucial to the diagnostic process, teleradiology is directly improving patient outcomes and saving lives.
