The Casualty Edition: Outdated Imaging Equipment: A Problem That Could Impact Care Quality & Claims Loss
This quarter’s Casualty Edition features a deep dive into the state of imaging equipment and the potential problems with care quality and claim costs.
Guest author Ted Smith, Vice President of Sales for Apricus Specialty Networks, a division of Mitchell | Genex | Coventry, provides insights into the challenges with out-of-date imaging equipment, and the promise of investment in newer machines.
“The latest equipment can enable healthcare providers to diagnose and treat patients with greater precision, giving them unprecedented visual and functional information on a patient’s condition,” says Smith.
“At the same time, newer equipment facilitates faster, more intelligent imaging services that support medical decision making, improve outcomes, and boost the economics of imaging departments and facilities.”
Additionally, experts from Mitchell, Genex and Coventry weigh in on COVID-19’s impact on healthcare and claims and workers’ compensation.
In addition to insights into the state of imaging equipment, these experts provide an update on the latest industry and technology trends related to predictive analytics, telemedicine, pharmacy, and more – including the impact of these trends on care and benefits.
