Imaging and diagnostics often form the first part of many care pathways and can take up a significant portion of a patient’s journey time. For patients, that could mean painful waits for diagnostics before treatment, or even result in days off sick or increased care needs, creating a burden on society in general.
Since the introduction of national recommended diagnostic and treatment targets, patient waits have reduced significantly. The targets have brought focus and encouraged providers to be more efficient and innovative with delivery models, enabling the health system to see an unprecedented number of patients in a timely manner. However, the industry must continue to innovate if it is to meet demand that is outpacing available capacity.
By harnessing digital tools and technology, we are able to provide capacity across a region for scanning, reporting and digital analysis, and make that available to clinicians at the point of care.
- access capacity on-demand, and meet national targets
- no capital outlay or lengthy business case required
- out-of-hospital, freeing hospital capacity
- improve outcomes
