One practice that significantly cut it’s operational costs during the past last 2 years is Advanced Radiology Consultant’s of Connecticut. ARC provides services at 7 outpatient imaging centers spread across southern Connecticut.The practice has noted a significant spike in the number of patients using its Patient Portal. Some industry statistics show radiology practices with targets of 60 to 80 patient sign-ups per week for portal functions.
ARC has thousands of patients who sign up weekly and are actively using its portal as a regular channel of engagement, thereby improving workflow and efficiency costs at the practice. The OneDX solution accounts for estimated savings of more than $400,000 a year, just through the elimination of DVDs, equipment and unnecessary staff time, as well as postage costs for sending images between radiology practices and hospitals.
