Three Reasons To Think Mobile MRI System
Everybody likes a good investment. How do you know if a mobile MRI system is the way to go? This decision has a lot to do with your hospital’s individual situation, but it’s important to understand why a mobile mri unit would work for you: logistically and financially.
1. Mobile MRI Systems offer Convenience and Flexibility
Let’s start with the greatest “pro”: mobile MRI systems provide healthcare to patients that otherwise could be deprived of this medical technology. Whether it is due to location, population size, or cost. A mobile mri can adopt a rotating schedule, moving between locations according to patient volume and need, and allowing providers to efficiently schedule scans for their time with the MRI. Often times, a mobile MRI unit is called in as a backup when a fixed unit undergoes maintenance or renovation. Lastly, a mobile is a great option when it comes to alleviating patient backlog.
2. Lower Fixed Costs
In many cases, adding a full in-house MRI suite is unnecessary or exceeds the budget. This makes a mobile MRI system a great option. It offers less expensive installation costs and less installation time, getting you scanning sooner. In addition, sharing the mobile unit between sites reduces costs even more.
3. Potential Source of Increased Revenue
Despite the increase in variable costs, sharing a mobile mri system can multiply the opportunity for revenue. Simply by coordinating scan schedules, a group of providers can all reap the benefits of a mobile MRI. The variable costs will be split or covered via a standard payment to the owner location. Multiple revenues certainly justify the purchase and costs.
