Teleradiology Services for Rural Community Hospitals

Your small or rural hospital has diverse needs, and it can become difficult and expensive to staff radiologists in every specialty. At Argus Radiology, we use the latest technology in the radiology field along with our professional team of US-based radiologists to improve the quality of patient care for those hospitals who can’t seem to justify hiring an on-site radiologist to work 24/7.

Argus Radiology’s physicians are trained in radiological subspecialties, including preliminary reads, final reads, fractional FTE, and additional solutions. Argus’ high level of expertise allows us to provide rural community hospitals with the subspecialty expertise of a major research hospital. Argus Radiology can help you improve your services in a timely and efficient manner by providing a personal connection to our highly skilled radiologists.

  • We limit the number of radiologists to 5-7 per facility.
  • Your practice will save time by never having to answer your own calls. We will do that for you.
  • Virtual Locum coverage for illnesses, vacations, holidays, weekends and meetings.
  • Responsive 24/7/365
  • After hours and emergency coverage
  • Preliminary and final reads sent within 20-30 minutes

Problem

Community-based rural hospital experiences inconsistent turnaround times with longtime on-site solo radiologist position possibly compromised by aggressive teleradiology vendor. Hospital seeks improvement in turnaround times without threatening retention of staff radiologist.

Solution

Argus Radiology, with average turnaround times < 20 minutes, provides a mixed solution of Virtual Locum Tenens, after-hour final-read reports, and Argus standard re-assuring contractual clause prohibiting radiologist displacement.
