Quality of care is by far the most important consideration for your hospital. But quality issues in radiology — including a lack of subspecialty availability, long turnaround times, inconsistent and indecisive reports and lack of availability for consultations — can also prevent you from getting referrals and limit the satisfaction of your medical staff.
Our experience shows that setting a higher bar for the clinical quality of your hospital’s radiology department can significantly increase outpatient referrals to the hospital-based imaging service.
When Radisphere partners with a hospital, radiology department satisfaction levels quickly improve. Usually they rise dramatically within the next annual survey cycle and continue to rise above the 85% level.
Radisphere’s commitment to quality will increase your medical staff’s satisfaction, resulting in:
- Increased referrals
- Increased outpatient imaging
- Increased women’s imaging
- Increased IR
- Better utilization management
