According to a new study, about one third, or more specifically 29.14%, of the time spent at your MRI appointment is wasted time. What is considered wasted time and how can we improve efficiency?
For this study at the two outpatient facilities, the research team split the time values into three categories, value-added time, business value-added time, or non–value-added time. The most frequent time waster was IV or port placement, and the most longest time waster was MRI arthrography where contrast was not accounted for during scheduling due to patient late arrival.
While this may not seem like such a concern on the surface, time adds up and this eats up business and potential patient time.
At Sound Imaging, we prioritize efficiency, whether it is making sure an MRI repair is fast and fixed while using our loaner program, or creating patient comfort devices that make the scanning process easier and safer, like with our MRI devices, Magnet Watch and MRI Stereo.
