Our goal in working with Save On is to create a basis for improved over all care in the tri-county area, and the tools SOM is giving us will help us to accomplish that goal
Homosassa, Florida (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Save On Medical, the newly launched price-shopping and appointment booking tool for healthcare services, is delighted to announce their contract with Sugar Mill Diagnostic Imaging in Citrus County, Florida. Sugar Mill Diagnostic Imaging is located in Homosassa and is independently owned and operated by local board certified radiologist, Michael Herron M.D.
Sugar Mill Diagnostic Imaging’s decision to join the Save On Medical Community was an easy one. “Since the advent of health savings accounts and the economic down turn, we’ve seen a significant increase in self-pay patients,” comments Dr. Herron. This surplus of price shopping calls pointed out the need for a self-pay pricing structure that would cater to that price-sensitive patient population. As an independently owned outpatient diagnostic imaging facility, SMDI is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to a vast patient market, which is why they were attracted to the way Save On Medical’s systematic, yet personalized, approach.
It is important to SMDI that they are able to provide care to every segment of the patient population and Save On Medical will allow them to reach a group they previously might have missed. “We were attracted to the way in which Save On Medical improves our ability to serve the community at affordable pricing,” states Dr. Herron. “Our goal in working with Save On is to create a basis for improved over all care in the tri-county area, and the tools SOM is giving us will help us to accomplish that goal.”
The capabilities of Save On Medical also play a large role in the physician outreach process for facilities looking to increase referrals from other physicians in their community or network. Rather than going through the challenges of the referral process, a physician can simply recommend the patient goes to saveonmedical.com with their script in hand, to make an educated decision on their own based on aspects of quality, convenience and pricing.
Sugar Mill Diagnostic Imaging’s subscription to Save On Medical includes more than just a listing and scheduling capabilities. With the ability to manage their own Patient Process in the Care Manager, Sugar Mill Diagnostic Imaging has the ability to pay the same level of attention to their virtual patients as they would if the patient was in their office.
