5 Things Imaging Centers Should Eliminate From Their Workflow

Currently, many imaging centers are losing revenue due to the volume decrease of elective procedures, dwindling insurance reimbursement, and the general lack of traffic due to the global pandemic. This has left many imaging centers trying to stay afloat in an increasingly competitive environment. We empathize with the larger issues that imaging centers are facing right now amidst the covid-19 pandemic, and we realize that many may not have the ability to lift their heads long enough to see where there is a leak in the boat. So we thought it may be helpful to highlight some common inefficiencies and ways that they can be resolved to save time and money so that imaging centers can focus on the larger issues that the healthcare industry is currently facing.
