Independent Physicians who enjoy their lifestyle, enjoy making a good living and want to continue being the master of their own destiny – are absolutely able to do so - (National Diagnostics Services Organization)

What's occurring is exactly what you would expect when highly successful and intelligent professionals such as doctors and their administrators, get serious about responding to changing conditions

Everyone knows that over the past 36 months there has been ongoing, dramatic reductions of reimbursements, increases in insurance claim denials, hospitals acquiring physician practices - all leading to an understandable negative sentiment amongst many Cardiologists. These sentiments are leading to the consideration of options including integration, layoffs, reducing staff pay, and in some cases closure altogether. The reality is that this type of extreme concern over admittedly challenging conditions and stiff challenges may be completely unnecessary, according to the National Diagnostics Services Organization (http://www.NDSOINFO.COM).

"With more business people and corporations entering the healthcare industry than ever before, there are in fact available options and solutions in areas which have been directly battered by cuts and so on, explains Avi E Soffer, President of the NDSO and CEO of University Nuclear and Diagnostics (“UND”), whose company provides ways of increasing profitability for physicians via drastically reducing a facility’s nuclear diagnostic testing costs.

“There is no secret,” insists Soffer. “What's occurring is exactly what you would expect when highly successful and intelligent professionals such as doctors and their administrators, get serious about responding to changing conditions.” “University Nuclear and diagnostic and other accredited, capable service organizations very simply allow for doctors to among other things, counterpunch the conditions by cutting their nuclear stress testing costs, while simultaneously be introduced to ways of improving patient care via additional, proven revenue increasing modalities. As per the sudden, abrupt changes in the industry, outfits such as UND are being called upon by doctors, administrators and even techs to do what’s necessary in getting their practices back on stable ground.”

Soffer and UND further point out that the message from Medicare and the insurance companies regarding testing ranging from pre authorizations to reimbursements has been sent, is clear and likely not going to change. According to Soffer and the NDSO, the response should be, "So what? Rather than worry about something no one can do anything about – there are very real solutions to the problems - and answers to the questions. As long as DSO's such as UND and others continue to do their part in bringing about awareness of proven solutions and responses to the issues, then those who are independent, enjoy making a good living and want to continue being the master of their own destiny – are absolutely able to do so."
