Radiology Final Reads

Maximize your efficiency and access to comprehensive subspecialty expertise for final interpretations – ensure patients receive the same quality level of patient care at 2 AM as they do at 2 PM.

Since 2004, more and more facilities have found significant clinical, operational and financial benefits in using vRad’s experienced, subspecialty-trained radiologists for final radiology interpretations 24/7/365.

Instead of starting each day with preliminary report over-reads from the previous night and running into backlogs of cases, vRad client radiologists start their day focused on new patients. vRad clients save, on average, 26 working hours per week by doing today’s work today. This time can be spent reading new, higher-value studies or expanding your practice.

The radiologist shortage is expected to continue—creating recruiting and capacity challenges that make it difficult for many practices to manage even daytime volumes. More clients are expanding their partnership with vRad Final Interpretations to manage daytime load and provide the high-quality reads and efficiency of our structured reports, workflow efficiencies and operations center support to facilitate communication. This allows them to enhance patient care, decrease time to diagnosis and treatment as well as maximize reimbursement.

vRad’s final interpretation solution:

  • Enable your radiologists to start their day fresh by avoiding morning overreads
  • Maintain staffing coverage 24/7/365
  • Increase your productivity, efficiency, and bottom line
  • Comply with Medicare claim submission requirements and prevent delays
  • Optimize reimbursement with structured reports and automated dictation review
  • Manage your workload and enhance your radiology team’s work/life balance
  • Customize final interpretation reports to your requirements
  • Integration our interpretations directly into your system
vRad helped us move to final reads, which has made the reading process cleaner and more efficient for our department and improved turnaround times for our medical staff. By removing the headaches and redundancy of prelims, I have more ‘found time’ to manage our department and focus on strategic department issues.

Customize the layout of your final radiology reports—with vRad Custom Structured Reports

Even when a technologist acquires an ideal image and a radiologist performs a thorough, accurate interpretation, clinician excellence can be totally negated if the results are not clearly and effectively communicated.  vRad’s Custom Structured Reports provide a consistent experience allowing referring physicians to quickly review a report and take action.

Each vRad report is created in real-time using line-by-line dictation and follows a consistent template that includes Exam, Technique, Comparison, Findings and Impression.  Our proprietary workflow focuses on reducing distractions, which allows our radiologists to spend more time reading images and less time on administrative tasks.
