Date:2/4/2010

Smart Choice MRI and the Milwaukee Wave align to provide all players with high quality, value based MRI services. The Official Imaging Provider partnership revolves around the idea of educating athletes and sports enthusiasts about high quality, affordable health care.

Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) February 4, 2010 -- The Milwaukee Wave has announced a partnership with Smart Choice MRI, a revolutionary outpatient-imaging center focused on providing the most technologically advanced MRI services at an affordable price. The Official Imaging Provider partnership revolves around the idea of educating athletes and sports enthusiasts about high quality, affordable health care.

Jim Lindenberg, owner of the Milwaukee Wave commented, “The Milwaukee Wave’s professional soccer players deserve the very best in medical care. Partnering with Smart Choice MRI allows the Milwaukee Wave to provide uncompromising quality for their athletes at a very affordable price.”

Smart Choice MRI has transformed traditional outpatient imaging in more ways than one. Since opening its flagship facility near Miller Park in 2006, over 900 physicians have referred patients to the most technologically advanced and cost controlled MRI center in South Eastern Wisconsin.
   
“In 2009, we saved the Wisconsin health care market over $4.2 million and have scanned patients referred by more than 900 physicians,” says Andrew Stoll, Director of Marketing at Smart Choice MRI. “The average cost of a non-contrast lumbar spine MRI is $2308.46 in Wisconsin; even the most expensive exams at another facility are just $600 for every patient at Smart Choice,” Stoll says. “Companies such as Anthem and United Healthcare agree that Smart Choice’s quality is as high as any competitors.”

Seconding the Wave’s choice, Jane Cooper, President and CEO of Patient Care, the nation’s leading patient advocacy group, says “Patient Care provides cost and quality comparisons to consumers in SE Wisconsin and consistently identifies Smart Choice MRI as an outstanding high quality, value based facility.” All major insurance companies have begun developing transparency metrics so that their patients are able to better understand the financial impact of their own healthcare decisions.

Consumer driven health care is taking hold across the country and Smart Choice MRI is leading the way in Wisconsin, setting the bar high for years to come.
        
About Smart Choice MRI – Smart Choice MRI is the nation’s first top-tier MRI provider to offer the highest quality medical services for a transparent, flat rate. Smart Choice MRI has been serving patients in the Milwaukee Area since October of 2006.
