MINNEAPOLIS, MN (PRWEB) September 22, 2015
vRad (Virtual Radiologic), an affiliate of MEDNAX, Inc. (NYSE: MD) and the nation’s leading telemedicine company and radiology practice, announced today that it was selected to present during the “Value Innovation Lab” roundtable session at the Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) 2015 Fall Educational Conference taking place in Austin, Texas September 27-29, 2015.
vRad’s submitted case study “Radiology Data Analytics: Preparing radiology practices for the next level of value for the healthcare enterprise” was chosen by the panel of judges for its relevancy, originality and significance to demonstrate how, as a radiology practice, vRad is adding value to the healthcare enterprise.
vRad’s experience supports that radiology analytics are the best way to drive evidence-based discussions with hospital partners. As noted in the submission, fact-based insights to improve imaging service quality drives a cascade of positive effects, including accurate diagnoses, effective treatments and greater cost-efficiencies with patients getting healthier, spending less time in the hospital and using fewer scarce hospital resources. With analytics, radiology becomes an indispensable partner to hospitals vs. a cost center to be managed.
Consistent with RBMA’s motto of “Progress through Sharing,” vRad’s case study will be presented and displayed during a roundtable session on Monday, September 28, 2015 from 11:15 am to 12:15 pm, local time. In addition, vRad experts will be available to meet with all attendees at Booth 212 during exhibit hours.
