Free Medical Film Digitization Trims Fat from Health Care Facility Budgets
HOUSTON, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — With hospitals continually seeking new ways to cut costs while keeping customers smiling, anything that can do this — particularly for free — is welcome news. Even better, however, is when that particular product or service is good for the environment, and that’s exactly why more and more health care facilities are turning to Bayland Digital, Inc. (http://www.baylanddigital.com), a free medical scanning service that converts film X-rays into digital format and then recycles the old X-rays.
“Without a doubt, this is a win-win for all involved,” says Rudy NematZadeh, Bayland Digital’s founder. “Patients are pleased because they can instantly receive high-quality, digital images of their older X-rays, and health care professionals can provide these digital scans while simultaneously cutting traditional archive-associated costs. As if that’s not enough, our no-cost service is earth-friendly. When X-rays are left to decompose in landfills, they are actually quite toxic, and so we’re trying to prevent that from happening through our complimentary recycling efforts.”
Bayland Digital specializes in scanning film such as X-rays, CTs, ultrasounds, MRIs, mammograms and more. Once scanned, the images are loaded into a fully searchable digital DICOM format, which is guaranteed to work with PACS and EMR systems. Bayland Digital, which can complete the entire conversion process onsite at no charge to the client, will then recycle the original films.
A HIPPA-compliant company, Bayland Digital adheres to HIPPA’s stringent privacy policies and ensures an error-free, secure transfer process. Bayland Digital also has a rigorous regimen for verifying digitized X-rays — each patient’s name and/or identification number is confirmed three separate times. Only then are scanned digital files safely stored on either the client’s server or on a complimentary server provided by Bayland Digital.
“Everything we’re doing is part of an effort to support the conversion from analog to digital while reducing needless expenditures for our clients, their patients and everyone else who is affected by the physical, logistical, administrative, HR and financial deadweight associated with outdated or traditional archiving,” says Ash Attar, Bayland Digital’s co-founder. “Our solution eliminates the need for film storage, retrieval service fees, per-scan costs and so much more. With hospitals and other medical organizations struggling to trim fat from their budgets, this free film scanning process is a financial no-brainer for all.”
