Diagnostic Imaging accuracy and speed key to SGRA’s success
Urgent care centers are popping up all over Georgia to help meet the needs of patients in all walks of life. The goal is to provide a quick service with an accurate diagnosis. The complete care and work up often includes diagnostic imaging services, which is often the key to successful patient care.
Diagnostic Radiology Services
Urgent care centers rarely employ staffs who are trained to quickly and accurately read digital imagery generated by on-site administered xrays. Most urgent care centers use the diagnostic radiology services provided by local, regional, or national providers, depending on the level of support required by the particular urgent care center.
These radiology service providers can have turn-around times ranging from a couple hours to a couple months in extreme cases. Urgent care owners who do not source their radiology services carefully could face significant consequences up to and including lawsuits for wrongful injury.
South Georgia Radiology Associates
South Georgia Radiology Associates services provides quick turn-around times for their Urgent Care center clients, typically returning official interpretation summary report in as little as 4 hours. Utilizing cutting-edge cloud based PACS, SGRA can elevate both the timeliness and accuracy of any Urgent Care Center’s patient care.
A recent Urgent Care Center prospect was facing a diagnostic imaging backlog of over 2 months with their nationally based radiology service company. The owner decided to give SGRA the chance to help reduce this backlog and raise their level of service accordingly.
In less than 2 weeks, the Urgent Care’s backlog was completely eliminated and current interpretations were taken to an almost overnight level of care, which allowed them to expand into emergency radiology services as well. STAT radiology exams requiring a board certified radiologist (all of SGRA Radiologists are certified by the American Board of Radiology) are read and reported back to the clinical practitioner in average time frames of less than 20 minutes.
