Many medical facilities use digital x-ray technology to increase their return on investment (ROI) and better serve their patients. The ability to capture, store, retrieve, produce, and distribute images quickly has improved the patient experience across many hospitals.
With a digital x-ray machine, ready access to your x-ray film archive is available at any time for comparison studies. Electronic medical records and digital imaging systems can be seamlessly integrated so that anything from the patient’s history to their current x-rays is at your fingertips.
1. Enhanced Patient Care
Better x-ray image quality means fewer repeated exams and more accurate diagnoses. Images are delivered quickly, ensuring that patients receive optimal care speeding up the process of referring patients to specialists, and receiving test results in a timely manner so your staff can focus on patient care instead of clerical tasks.
2. Easier Accessibility to Medical Records
By digitizing your x-rays into digital formats that are easily accessible, you can provide your patients with speedy, electronic access to their film archives. This eliminates the need to request copies of old films or return them to your facility to look through them. You can also upload digital x-rays onto a server, allowing you to transfer them more easily among different facilities if needed.
3. Reduced Costs
By digitizing your existing film archive to digital formats that can be transferred electronically, you will also eliminate the need to maintain large paper archives and copy machines. This means that you will no longer have to pay rent for rooms containing these facilities and the cost of purchasing and maintaining such machines.
4. Faster Results
With a digital x-ray machine, you can produce quality images in a matter of seconds instead of days. This leads to faster diagnoses and treatments for your patients. Once your patient’s old films have been digitized and transferred electronically to the new system, accessing the information is much faster than traditional film-based systems. You can instantly view, print, or distribute images among different facilities without the need to wait for processing and shipping time.
5. Improved Data Security
Any medical institution implementing digital x-ray technology will benefit from improved security of patient data as it reduces the risk of image loss due to improper handling.
Digital systems create a more secure environment for your patients’ data, protecting them from unsecured paper files and unauthorized access. Maintaining your digital x-ray machine can be a significant challenge, but the benefits you will receive in return are well worth it!
