BENEFITS FOR YOUR PATIENTS

LOWER PATIENT COSTS

As patient responsibility for healthcare expenses increases, patients are becoming more sensitive to the cost of their treatment. Ultrasound is an effective diagnostic test that is a fraction of the cost of other imaging modalities. On-site ultrasound also eliminates the excess fees for your patients that are often associated with outside imaging centers, including facility fees and specialty co-pay expenses.

CONVENIENT SERVICE

S&s Life Scan Corp accredited mobile ultrasound service takes place in the comfortable setting of your medical practice, where patients know and trust the people, medical care, and policies. Our on-site service also eliminates confusions and frustrations with directions and parking at an unfamiliar hospital or imaging center.

Our mobile Sonographer will visit your practice on a regularly scheduled basis, and our service allows flexible scheduling to meet the needs of your patients and healthcare providers, including time-critical tests. General, Vascular, and Cardiac ultrasounds can all be performed on the same day, keeping patients from visiting several facilities to receive the care they need. And our top quality interpreting physicians provide you with timely patient results you can trust.

ENHANCED PATIENT CARE

Research has shown that patient care is more effective when it is on-site. The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a care delivery model in which a patient's treatment is coordinated through their primary care physician to ensure they receive the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand. On-site diagnostic ultrasound service means you can ensure that your patients are receiving the level of care they need because patients are treated within your practice.

IMPROVED PATIENT COMPLIANCE

Patients are more likely to follow through with treatment recommendations from a diagnostic exam when the test is performed on-site. Mobile ultrasound service with S&S LIFE SCAN CORP allows your medical practice to offer greater continuity of care for your patients, which results in better health outcomes for your patients.

ADVANTAGES FOR YOUR PRACTICE

ADDITIONAL PRACTICE REVENUE

Our on-site diagnostic service provides an opportunity for your practice to capture additional revenue associated with the care of your patients. Instead of referring this revenue to an outside source, S&S LIFE SCAN CORP allows your practice to capture reimbursement for mobile diagnostic ultrasound.

This additional practice revenue can be achieved through our on-site ultrasound service without any capital or staff investment. Our billing experts will provide education on the simple billing steps associated with reimbursement for diagnostic ultrasound who are also available to help with any questions throughout the billing process and to ensure that all potential revenue is being captured.

PRACTICE CONVENIENCE

S&S LIFE SCAN CORP mobile ultrasound service takes place in one of your exam rooms within your practice. This means fewer scheduling hassles and reduced administrative burdens for your practice staff related to referring patients out for ultrasound. Our mobile Sonographer can perform add-on exams on the same day as scheduled service visits.

PHYSICIAN CONTROL

Providing diagnostic exams on-site fosters improved relationships between providers and patients. When patients get lost in the referral maze, the primary care physician can often never receive the test results. 1 in 3 test results can be missed, which leads to delays and greater costs in the patient's care as well as increased health risks.

On-site diagnostic care means that patients are more likely to comply with treatment. Through on-site service with S&S LIFE SCAN CORP, your physicians can reduce the per capita cost of healthcare and advance the health of patient populations, while improving the patient's medical care experience.

PATIENT RETENTION

Due to the increasing prevalence of higher deductibles and co-pays, patients are very price-conscious. They look for the most cost effective and convenient options when choosing a physician for their medical needs. On-site diagnostic ultrasound service allows your medical practice to both attract new patients and retain valued existing patients through the benefits of on-site service and care.
