Portable Imaging & Home Care Providers
Offer Best Care Options for Clients, Family Members, and Treating Providers
Clients, family members, and other referral sources are constantly looking for the most comprehensive portfolio of service options when choosing a private duty provider. Safety along with convenience is critical for clients and the easier it is for them to receive physician ordered tests, the better! Portable imaging services performed in a client’s home offer a convenient, fast, and reliable solution. Take a brief walk through the history of portable x-ray services and learn about the technological advances which allow hospital-grade x-ray, ultrasound, and cardiac monitoring to be performed wherever a client calls home. Examine the regulatory differences between portable imaging and fixed-site imaging providers, to ensure accurate and appropriate client care. Set your agency apart from your competitors by considering the value a portable imaging partnership can bring to your clients and to your business.
