radiology outsourcing

The medical field is constantly innovating and improving, something that is not just limited to medication and treatment options. Hospital and medical facility procedural approaches are regularly updated as well, since worthwhile changes can bring about more revenue and a better quality of care for patients.

One option that many medical facilities utilize is radiology outsourcing, since there are numerous advantages to partnering with an experienced teleradiology group. Let’s take a look at remote radiology and all the things it can offer for your practice or facility.

Advantages to Using Outsourced Radiology Services

There is a wealth of benefits to partnering with radiology outsourcing companies like Specialty Teleradiology. Some of these include the following.

1. Teleradiologists with Diverse Subspecialty Expertise

Our teleradiology practice provides subspecialty fellowship-trained radiologists for your MSK, Neurology, and Body Imaging needs. We also offer radiologists with unique, extensive experience with oncologic and neuro PET/CT,

Our radiologists are board-certified and available for consultations regarding results, clinical concerns, unexpected findings, and more. Additionally, remote radiology readings from Specialty are always provided with quick turnaround times to ensure that your staff and patients receive results in a timely manner.

2. Peer-Reviewed Reports

Another benefit to partnering with Specialty Teleradiology for outsourced radiology services is our quality assurance program. Our teleradiology company is a participant of RADPEER, a resource from American College of Radiology for peer reviewing image interpretations to ensure quality.

By being a part of RADPEER, Specialty Teleradiology is able to help your facility maintain its vital ACR accreditation.

3. Competitive Pricing to Benefit Your Budget

When you work with a teleradiology company for remote radiology interpretations you receive a cost-effective alternative to hiring additional radiologists to operate in-house within your medical facility or practice.

Bringing in a new radiologist to be on your team is expensive. Additionally, solo radiologists are not able to offer multiple subspecialty expertise. Partnering with a teleradiology group removes these problems, as studies can easily be read by radiologists with specific expertise to the diagnostic exam performed.
