A combination of reimbursement-rate cuts and insurance denials has spiked demand for cost-cutting testing services utilizing Diagnostic Service Organizations (“DSO”) http://www.ndsoinfo.com, such as University Nuclear and Diagnostics (“UND”) http://www.nuclearstresstest.net. Together with ProtectionPLUS™, UND’s nuclear camera service and repair arm, UND, the nation’s foremost DSO provides drastic cost savings in diagnostic testing to hospitals, testing facilities and Cardiology practices. UND provides a comprehensive solution to inefficient, traditional testing methods offering an “in-house” arrangement where UND becomes completely responsible for the success of a facility’s existing testing operations. First, a practice’s current "cost-per- test" is calculated, then UND provides a 20% to 40% "lower cost-per-test" while covering full time lab management and costs for all aspects of the lab, such as isotopes, lab personnel, physicists, coding assistance, equipment maintenance and lab accreditation. Essentially the burden of lab operations gets shifted away from the practice to UND, while costs become controlled, resulting in significant savings and convenience to the practice or facility.
Colorado-based Scientific Imaging's (“SI”) NucLear Mac system has been among the world's best-selling nuclear medicine computers. Because NucLear Mac is specifically designed for use in Mac computers, users immediately benefit from faster image acquisition, reduced processing time, and the ability to transmit images anywhere in the world (IPads, IPhones, PCs).
NucLear Mac requires less than ten minutes for connection to current nuclear cameras. When comparing gated and other images to those of other well-known options, NucLear Mac outperforms most competitors in several key areas and for a fraction of the cost. For further increased lab efficiency, NucLear Mac offers users the ability to simultaneously acquire and process images, and allows up to five monitors per computer. Using Apple’s System Software results in the “NucMac’s” seamless display and transfer of studies anywhere in the world.
In an ongoing effort to bring improvements and efficiencies to practices and facilities nationwide, UND has acquired the licensing rights for NucLear Mac, with plans to provide equipment upgrades to eligible UND clientele. While SI continues to individually produce and deliver NucLear Mac, Nuclear Mac will provide users with enhancements to the acquisition and processing of nuclear images, greatly increased life span of aging nuclear cameras, as well as vast improvements to image acquisition time and quality.
“Reimbursement cuts have had an impact on everyone in the industry. Our bottom line is in slashing costs and improving conditions for those offering diagnostic testing, period,” says UND CEO, Avi E. Soffer. “Along with our testing solutions, making equipment perform better, faster and last longer is yet an additional way we can best save doctors money. A collaborative effort with a company such as SI made perfect sense in bringing about much-needed, no-nonsense assistance to those in need,” says Soffer.
