Rural areas experience shortages in medical professionals covering a multitude of disciplines and Radiology is one of the larger concerns. A study covering 8 states in the northwest and midwest identified significant shortages that resulted in complete lack of coverage in 54% of calendar days. An even more startling statistic is the shortage of radiology applicants compared to job openings. In 2016, there were 2,224 job openings with only 1,200 available applicants. This further compounds for rural demographics that typically have less rescues and challenges related to provider retention.
Larger practices and mental health organizations have specific needs, existing technology, and unique workflows. The VisuWell platform is a modular tool suite that is built to integrate with your practice and help you innovate how you deliver care.
It has been common practice to outsource after hours radiology services. A 2003 study from 64 California hospitals reviewed 123,870 teleradiologic studies. The speed of review and low discordance proved the value of teleradiology services and further justifies leveraging radiology networks for increasing reach in rural areas along with patient load management.
