Mobile x-rays are becoming increasingly popular. There is an appeal for patients to receive medical treatment in a familiar facility. Mobile imaging is a great way for businesses to take care of their patients’ needs while saving time and money. Here are some of the ways mobile imaging can help.
1. Mobile x-rays are convenient
Mobile x-rays are convenient for everyone. There’s same day appointments, a 1-2 hour turnaround time, and no need to move patients out of a familiar setting. If patients and patient’s families are happy, that reflects on the business and can help continue making money.
2. Mobile x-rays have day appointments
Same day appointments are great for patients because they don’t have to sit around waiting and worrying to be seen. Mobile x-rays with same day appointments do not cost more. This saves time without a higher price tag. Sometimes injuries or illness can arise quickly out of nowhere and require immediate attention. Same day appointments have this in mind.
3. Results are faster
Results from a mobile x-ray take approximately one-hour. The faster you get results for patients, the faster you know how to treat them moving forward. This is significantly faster than scheduling an appointment to go into the office for a future date and then waiting for the x-ray results.
4. Patients are more comfortable
Moving elder patients requires a lot of work and can be difficult. Mobile x-rays allow patients to stay in a familiar setting which provides a level of comfort to them. The happier your patients are, the more likely they are to continue to pay you money each month.
5. Mobile x-rays don’t require moving patients in bad weather
Moving around when weather is bad can mean dicey road conditions which is a liability. Mobile imaging is a safer option for patients and businesses when the weather is bad. They also do not require the cost of transportation.
6. Eliminating transportation requires less staff
Transporting an elder patient can require a staff member to stay alongside and make sure all goes well. Elder patients may need assistance with walking, being lifted, having a wheelchair pushed, and more. Eliminating transportation costs, also reduces additional staffing fees.
7. Insurance, Medicare and Medicaid will still pay
With all of these benefits, keep in mind that mobile x-rays are still covered by insurance, medicare and medicaid. There are no additional fees for a business to pay, just loads of benefits to receive.
