INTERIM IMAGING HITS THE MARK

Challenge

A large community owned health system in southwest Florida was faced with growing PET/CT scan volumes as patients scheduled appointments that were put off during the pandemic. With the increased demand exceeding capacity, patients were looking elsewhere for PET/CT services. In order to improve retention and meet the imaging needs of their community, they needed to look at strategic investments in PET/CT to quickly serve more patients with the same high-quality technology.

Solution

Through extensive discussions about their business goals and imaging needs, Shared Imaging developed an affordable interim imaging solution that added additional service days, reduced backlog and decreased patient leakage. Through our unique functional service model, they leased 2 PET/CT mobile coaches that alternate service days between 3 locations.  Each mobile coach is housed with advanced PET/CT technology and customized to enhance the patient experience.  All our mobile coaches meet AHCA regulations for outpatient use. In addition, Shared Imaging provides 24/7 OEM service and preventative maintenance, fully licensed clinical staffing, and ongoing operational oversight for the mobile coaches and systems for the entire length of the interim solution.

We were in a time crunch for mobile PET/CT and working with Shared allowed us to meet the short window to secure a unit.
