Last year, we saved our hospitals over $10 million while treating over 3.9 million patients.
Technological advancements have made radiology a linchpin in confident and concise patient diagnoses. As a result, the radiology department often becomes backlogged, which can lead to excessive wait times throughout the hospital. Excessive radiology staffing isn’t the answer. You must find an efficient means of collecting, interpreting and distributing images in order to streamline workflow and boost patient satisfaction.
ApolloMD’s Radiology Division model focuses on providing rapid report turnaround while improving satisfaction for both patients and radiology staff. Our model incorporates:
Recruitment of Top Quality Providers
With approach to radiology staffing—quality of life and top income—ApolloMD proudly maintains a physician retention rate of 98%.
Incentives to Improve Patient Satisfaction
By incentivizing the physician, ApolloMD effectively reduces turnaround times and patient wait times—two key determinants to patient satisfaction. Higher patient satisfaction rates increase a patients’ willingness to return to a hospital, enhance the reputation of the hospital, and are associated with increased medical compliance, better patient outcomes and a decreased likelihood of malpractice litigation.
Objective Measures of Quality
As a leader in benchmarking and quality initiatives, we have structured benchmarks and use evidence-based medicine guidelines to monitor and measure the performance of our providers.
Unlike the traditional radiology staffing model, ApolloMD physicians are incentivized to provide timely imaging services. Rewarded for their efforts and acumen with a performance-based compensation structure, ApolloMD radiologists cultivate a “culture of performance” that leads to improvements in flow throughout the hospital.
In addition to volume, quality-based compensation further incentivizes physicians to provide precise, efficient care and reports.
