RemakeHealth Launches Website Connecting Healthcare Consumers With Medical Imaging Centers
Over 500 million medical imaging tests are performed each year, making MRIs, CT Scans and X-rays a critical part of every U.S. patient's medical life. Today's healthcare consumers, however, have few resources to learn about and choose from among the nearly 7,000 medical imaging centers that perform Radiology tests. At www.remakehealth.com, consumers now have an online resource to find a local imaging center, request appointments for Radiology tests and look up medical imaging prices.
200 different Radiology tests are available on the site. Medical imaging tests include MRIs, Ultrasounds, CT Scans, X-rays, and more. RemakeHealth's technology matches healthcare consumers to local Radiology centers, showing facilities who take their insurance and can perform the test. Many centers also list cash prices for patients paying out of pocket.
Featuring a look and feel similar to travel websites, RemakeHealth lets healthcare consumers quickly search for a Radiology facility and learn more about their local providers. Each facility's profile includes information such as office hours, location, imaging tests, and certification. Using the site, consumers can substantially reduce the time usually spent making an appointment.
"Medical imaging is one of the fastest growing healthcare segments. Our site is one of the few online resources that connects consumers directly with Radiology providers," said Ravinder Sohal M.D., RemakeHealth's founder and CEO. "Healthcare consumers can now learn more about their local Radiology facilities, compare services and request an appointment."
The Company has partnered with imaging centers in the San Francisco Bay Area, Orlando/Central Florida, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Featured Radiology groups include BMC Diagnostics, California Advanced Imaging, Drew Medical, and Red Rock Radiology. Their facilities offer a wide array of medical imaging tests such as MRI, CT scan, Ultrasound, X-ray, DEXA Bone Densitometry, Mammography, Nuclear Medicine and PET.
"Working with these Radiology groups has allowed RemakeHealth to create compelling content," said Rob Parsons, VP of Operations. "With more people using the internet to find healthcare information, our partners are committed to making their Radiology services easier to find and accessible."
