Mobile x-rays. A lot of the time, people think that these are only really suitable for emergency scenarios, like a military installation or disaster zone, however, they may be selling the usefulness of this technology short. There are a variety of different areas where they may have applications. Let’s go into some that may be off the beaten path.
Medical practices with limited space: Remember, mobile x-rays aren’t just about being moved around, but also naturally being smaller with similar functionality. There may be some smaller practices (orthopedists, chiropractors) that need medical imaging but can’t afford to put up a massive equipment set. This is a good option here.
Urgent care centers: Remember, when it comes to urgent care centers, a top priority is making sure that you’re processing your many patients efficiently. As a result, any patient that needs medical imaging, but has mobility issues or other things that could keep them from properly using traditional equipment, would potentially slow things down. As a result, it’s a good idea to consider this to minimize the wait for your patients.
Specialty medical settings: In some cases, like doctors who primarily service retirement communities or rehab facilities, the majority of your patient base may have some type of mobility issue. Again, investing in mobile x-rays is an all-around efficiency booster.
So, at this point, we’ve established there are a variety of settings where mobile x-rays are not only useful, but the ideal option for you. With that in mind, how do you act when you are ready to make the switch. At JPI Healthcare Solutions, we understand what an investment this can be, and want to make sure that you are ultimately happy with your selection. This means providing a consultation before you buy, as well as support afterward for your practice or imaging center.
