Mobile Imaging: The Interim Build-Out King

Time continues to change the way access to healthcare exists for patients and thus, how healthcare executives or facility managers plan for the future.  What remains constant is that MOBILE IMAGING reigns supreme as the KING configuration for supporting a wide range of patient care models, imaging demand and flexible growth strategies. In fact, Transparency Market Research reported, the global mobile diagnostic imaging market is forecasted to grow annually at 3.2% over the period of 2017-2021.

Understand the Options

Interim

Facing a disruption in service or a need for short-term MRI, CT, PET/CT, or Breast Imaging modalities? An interim solution allows facilities to maintain their current volume while they either remodel, replace or repair their current equipment.

 

Limited Investment

Experiencing capital and/or spatial constraints that are limiting capabilities? A mobile solution is an ideal way to improve imaging services without making a significant capital investment.

 

Advantages

  • No large capital investment required
  • No build out required, offering flexibility to each facility
  • Relocatable for deployment at multiple sites
  • Avoid spatial limitations due to existing floor plan
  • Full service maintenance included

When is Mobile Imaging Suited for You?

Facility Managers and Healthcare Executives turn to mobile MRI, CT, PET/CT, and Breast Imaging medical coaches to complement their fixed imaging modalities for several IMPORTANT reasons:

  • Address backlogs and reduce appointment wait times at fixed locations (experiencing under duress from construction or expansion constraints)
  • Alternative strategy to incorporate new and advanced imaging technology (while building your new healthcare facility or extension)
  • Help drive different service offerings (as a way of proactive marketing for what services will come when your new project is complete)
  • Expand services into new areas (offer services while your outpatient center is being completed)
  • Grow patient volume (whether on-site or at your new location, mobile medical coaches allow capital to flow-in while you build-out)

The way hospitals and healthcare systems are using mobile imaging has changed in the last decade. While the industry may have simply started with imaging scanners on trucks to provide services to places that didn’t have the patient volume to warrant buying their own equipment, mobile has emerged as a key operational strategy to improve access, enhance care delivery and pave the way for growth and expansion.
