Radiology Management Company Helps Hospitals Grow Business, Retain Patients

On-site service brings trained diagnostic, interventional radiologists directly to hospitals

October 10, 2014 — Current economic factors have created many challenges for hospitals and medical providers, regardless of size or location.  Large urban hospitals are searching for ways to reduce costs and achieve greater efficiency, and smaller facilities, such as those in rural areas, are struggling to keep up with technology and staffing to keep their patients closer to home. To meet this need, Las Vegas-based Desert Radiologists, one of the country’s largest and most successful private radiology practices, created Desert Radiology Solutions (DRS) with teleradiology and on-site imaging services that help hospitals and other radiology practices around the country grow their business, providing more resources and greater flexibility.

DRS is a full-service and cost-effective radiology management and diagnostic services program adaptable to the specific needs of the individual medical provider.  The group includes more than 60 board certified physicians, with subspecialties in musculoskeletal, nuclear medicine, pediatrics, interventional, and neuroradiology. For large hospitals, DRS not only provides image interpretation on the most complex of cases, but it can provide on-site staffing for interventional procedures as well, seamlessly adding capacity without adding overhead.

In addition, DRS offers a variety of services for small to medium-sized hospitals, particularly in rural areas, including on-site diagnostic and interventional radiology programs. DRS has created an innovative on-site program that brings trained diagnostic and interventional radiologists directly into the hospital to provide diagnostic procedures and interventional support. 

For partnering hospitals, this means the ability to provide more services to their local medical staff and allow their patients to remain closer to home for their medical care.

Established in 2011, DRS is already helping others achieve their radiology practice goals.  It is currently assisting several hospitals and medical practices in the United States who otherwise would have been required to send patients to other facilities in order to get the appropriate diagnostic reports and analysis.

Reports are available within 24 hours for routine exams and within 30 minutes for STAT exams after image acquisition. For hospitals and medical providers, this provides the best of both worlds — on-site capabilities to meet their patient needs with full back-up support from a large, experienced radiology group with all-inclusive redundant systems in place to ensure the highest level of quality and service.

In addition, DRS provides customizable management solutions, from administrative and human resource services to technology, contract negotiations, and marketing assistance to help its partners grow.  These innovative radiology business and professional services, based upon proven systems and procedures, allow hospitals and physicians to maximize their financial resources and focus on what really matters — their patients. 

Desert Radiology Solutions and Desert Radiologists also are actively recruiting and hiring physicians and radiology staff for all types of specialties and positions, including partnership-track opportunities, both in their Las Vegas facilities and at ancillary locations.
