The future of health care: the intersection of lowering cost and improving quality

December 23, 2016
From the December 2016 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

• Awareness: Health systems must raise awareness about their technology to referring physicians, as well as educate patients so they will choose one of their facilities for care. Diagnostic imaging must be on the front lines of diagnosis and treatment. It plays a significant role in achieving the three pillars, as it can help better triage disease and help health care providers make educated decisions about how to treat each individual patient.

Diagnostic imaging alone is not a “one and done” solution, but it can be a vital resource to improving care and reducing costs. In order to truly work and see real benefits, it must be strategically integrated into the health care provider’s day-to-day protocols and workflows. Providers must also ensure that all medical staff are fully trained to use the imaging technology for a wide range of clinical applications, and know how to expand service lines that weren’t possible before.
