We are all feeling the impact of COVID-19 on our lives as well as on our professions. Medical imaging practices are similarly being impacted. Unfortunately, much of the affect of this disease will have long-standing implications that will linger far beyond the containment of COVID-19. In order to survive and perhaps even grow in the new reality, imaging practices will need to make drastic adjustments in how they operate.
As mentioned in an earlier blog, Diagnostic Imaging is taking steps to keep their patients safer and happier amid the COVID-19 pandemic by offering copies of their scans directly on their mobile phone. This helps their patients avoid waiting for copies of their scans burned to a CD after their radiology visit. An important aspect of the success of this new offering is spreading the word to patients while continuing to limit in-person interactions.
In order to support our partner in marketing Patient Access to their patients, we visited Diagnostic Imaging's office to provide marketing materials to spread the word without spreading germs! We created flyers, posters and reference cards for their staff to effortlessly communicate the value of Patient Access.
Diagnostic Imaging is an outpatient radiology practice that supports the community of Prince George’s County, Maryland. Diagnostic Imaging has multimodality facilities that provide services in MRI, CT, PET CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, Dexa and general diagnostic Xray, and is proud to provide care to a diverse group of patients from multiple countries.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to temporarily make our medical image sharing solution available free of charge to help keep your staff and patients safe, and to help mitigate the spread of the virus. To use this service, please visit: https://www.purview.net/covid-19.
A concern we often hear from physicians who hesitate to adopt online imaging access is that their older patients won't be comfortable with digital healthcare tools. In reality, seniors are more engaged with digital devices than ever before thanks to the vast health, social, and safety benefits that these tools offer. An app will actually make it easier for your patients to keep track of their imaging and share their images with their healthcare provider team.
