2 WEEKS

Average time for Diagnostic Imaging procedure to be scheduled from paper, fax, email and phone requests.

Ordering providers need faster turnaround time to perform a timely diagnosis for their patients.

Manual DI Requests and order entry create scheduling delays for the patient, delayed reports for providers and potential costly misallocation of equipment.
