Teleradiology Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Teleradiology is the transmission of radiological data between different medical offices or locations. Through this technology, patient and insurer costs may be reduced by having radiologists read reports from multiple providers at one centralized site. This is especially important in instances of CT and PET scans, MRIs, x-rays and ultrasounds as the need for them is expected to outpace the availability of radiologists. As technology in general advanced, so did medical technology. In today’s medical offices and hospitals, the majority of tests are done with some form of imaging. Teleradiology has kept pace with this advancement. Rarely, however, are emergency room physicians properly trained to read all of the radiological tests that are performed. In smaller areas where only one radiologist is on staff, it isn’t possible for that individual to be available 24/7, so teleradiology helps to make sure that all tests can be read in a timely manner. This is vitally important when subspecialists such as pediatric radiologists are needed but may not be available in rural areas. Teleradiology outsourcing is a rapid growth industry in response to the growing needs of patients. As with the majority of medical situations today, teleradiology systems are required to be HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) compliant.
