NightHawk Radiology Streamlines End-to-End Solutions for Radiologists
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NightHawk Radiology Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: NHWK), the leading provider of services to radiology groups across the United States, today announced that it will be offering its full range of services, an industry first, at the Radiological Society of North America's 2007 Annual Meeting (North Building - Hall B: 8551) in Chicago, November 25-29, 2007.
NightHawk will have representatives at RSNA to demonstrate its full range of services, including:
-- Preliminary and Off-Hours Interpretations
NightHawk offers preliminary interpretations 24 hours a day, 365 days a
year. Key benefits of this service include NightHawk's affiliated staff
of outstanding U.S. Board Certified radiologists to cover the growing
need for off-hours coverage. Many of these doctors have had fellowship
training in various sub-specialties and are experts in emergency
radiology care. These services help radiology groups improve their
ability to recruit radiologists, increase overall group productivity
and performance, and free up scarce radiologist resources for better
patient care and new business opportunities.
-- Final Interpretations
As the nation's leading provider of off-hour preliminary reads,
NightHawk can also assist with daytime final interpretations. NightHawk
offers final interpretations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for
overflow, vacation, illness, locums and retirement coverage. Its
streamlined privileging and credentialing process and ability to
rapidly interface with information systems afford NightHawk the ability
to respond quickly to a radiology group's evolving needs. Partnering
with NightHawk also means partnering with our affiliated,
fellowship-trained radiologists, so radiology groups can seek help for
challenging sub-specialty reads. NightHawk's sub-specialties include
Neuroradiology, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Thoracic Radiology, Nuclear
Medicine, Abdominal Imaging, Cardiac Angiography (CTA), Pediatrics,
Vascular, and MRI.
-- 3D Reconstruction
More than 2 million cardiac procedures are performed every year,
including nuclear medicine cardiac stress studies and invasive
diagnostic coronary angiograms. Over time, non-invasive Cardiac CTA
scans will likely replace a significant number of these invasive
procedures, and NightHawk now offers 24-hour coverage for 3D
Reconstruction services and professional interpretive services, in the
form of either preliminary or final reads.
NightHawk's highly-trained 3D technologists bring their imaging and
cardiac CT experience to all NightHawk customers, complementing the
development of their in-house cardiac CT programs. Additionally,
NightHawk technologists work closely with our ACR and ACC Level II
certified physicians to ensure continuity of service.
-- NightHawk Business Services
The newest NightHawk division provides cost savings to radiology
practices looking to improve their services and grow their businesses.
Specifically, NightHawk Business Services provides radiology group
customers with revenue cycle management, facilities and human resources
management, transcription, finance, and other services required to
effectively operate a radiology practice. The combination of these
business services with NightHawk's professional services and clinical
workflow technology provide a powerful advantage for physician
partners, while enhancing patient care.
-- TALON(TM): Clinical Workflow System
NightHawk's workflow technology solution features intelligent image
distribution that routes images to, and creates work lists for, the
appropriate radiologist by leveraging the speed and power of the
internet in a highly secure fashion. Designed by radiologists, for
radiologists, the 100% paperless system can quickly and easily
integrate into an existing practice, tying multiple sites and systems
together, eliminating administrative tasks and enabling radiologists to
significantly improve their efficiency and load-balancing.
