'The SOLUTION' to rapid access and report turnaround
A radical service reconfiguration has demonstrated that it is not only possible to improve imaging services but also to reduce costs. At the March Imaging Workshop, delegates were challenged to think out side traditional service models with a presentation on an 'Open Access' service for CT and General Radiology. A key innovation is a hybrid reporting model. Reports are read by a mix of onsite specialists plus an outsourced Online Reporting Service to cover after hours and overflow. This has reduced the backlog of reports from 8,000 to zero, costs by 40%, and patient turnaround time to one hour. Click here.
