Teleradiology has come a long way over the past couple of decades. Originally developed to help accommodate busy radiologists and large hospital systems, teleradiology has grown into an industry that has seen exponential growth. In fact, teleradiology has even played a key role in the development of telemedicine. Alongside the growth of teleradiology was the rise of urgent care centers. Starting in the 1970’s, urgent care centers were forged out of a need for patients to receive unscheduled medical care.
So why are teleradiology and urgent care the perfect fit? Teleradiology has helped accomplish the goals of urgent care – quick turnaround times and exceptional patient experience. With over read, ultrasound and CT scan results at your fingertips, patients are able to get faster results and better care.
Within urgent care centers, there is typically a variation in patient care in, which is why urgent care centers do not hire full-time radiologists and instead choose to work with a teleradiology company. Teleradiology Specialists can help fill this need in urgent care centers, as we provide over reads at a competitive rate and on average provide results in 20 minutes or less. Our goal is to make sure your patients receive quick over read results, without sacrificing the quality of care.
