Teleradiology: Impact on Health Care System

  1. 1. TELERADIOLOGY: Impact on healthcare system
  2. 2. Introduction Teleradiology is the transmission of radiological patient images, such as X- Rays, CTs, and MRIs, from one location to another for the purposes of sharing studies with other radiologists and physicians. For this process to be implemented, three essential components are required, an image sending station, a transmission network, and a receiving / image review station.
  3. 3. Impact of Teleradiology on Clinics/ Hospitals and Imaging Centres Hospitals, Clinics, Imaging centers are having distinguished benefits from the use of teleradiology reporting services. These benefits are applicable even if the centers are having a low volume of radiology studies. Some of the key benefits are listed below.  Teleradiology services offer provision of sub-specialty opinion and support which may be beyond the skills of an existing team.  Provision of after hour services which relieve radiologists from the burden of being on-calls at night.  Enable small centers to provide teleradiology services without actually hiring a permanent radiologist.  Vaccation and weekend coverage for the resident radiologists  More efficient use of radiology infrastructure
  4. 4.  Cost Efficiency: One of the biggest cost (and time) wasters for radiologists is travel. Teleradiology solutions however, cut out the need for travel. It allows the radiologist to work from anywhere that is most convenient and cost-efficient.  Immediate Medical Imaging Results: Teleradiology solutions eliminate the need for film, cds, dvds, and mailing, the radiologist and reading physician have immediate access to the images over the internet.  Improved Healthcare Access in Rural Areas: Since teleradiology solutions are web- based, their geographical reach is almost limitless.  Any hospital, from a small community hospital to a large referral hospital can benefit from the strategic use teleradiology solutions Impact of Teleradiology on Healthcare System
  5. 5. Advantages of Teleradiology  Cost efficiency  Immediate Medical Imaging Results  Improved Healthcare Access in Rural Areas  More Competitive Radiology Program  Faster transmission for second opinion.
  6. 6. Disadvantages of Teleradiology The barriers for successful implementation of teleradiology include:  Problems with telecommunications.  Energy infrastructure problems.  It required a proper setup of internet and other devices  The minimal teleradiolo-gical solutions are often informatically too complicated, unpractical to use and do not have all the necessary functions etc.
  7. 7. Teleradiology is a booming industry and one of the fastest-growing areas in health care services. There will be a major shortage of radiologists over the next 5-10 years. Although it is good that radiology is a highly competitive postgraduate degree that attracts the best medical graduates. Therefore, the need and utilisation of teleradiology growing will grow further. And finally teleradiology as an outsourced service will become an increasing trend. Teleradiology as a Career
