Riverside, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2009 -- ONRAD, Inc. is pleased to announce its new relationship with La Maestra Community Health Centers of San Diego, California. ONRAD will be providing 24x7x365 coverage of diagnostic ultrasound interpretations as well as mammography screening reports for La Maestra and their patients. "We are thrilled to have La Maestra as our newest customer and member of the ONRAD family, and we are excited to begin helping their patients in the San Diego community with quick answers on their diagnostic and screening tests," explains Jesse Salen, VP of Sales and Technology for ONRAD.

Working with ONRAD will allow La Maestra to continue improving access to care for the diverse, underserved San Diego residents. La Maestra's patients will be able to have ultrasounds performed and analyzed in the clinic, instead of traveling to the hospital or another doctor's office, saving them time and money. They can receive the results of ultrasounds more quickly, allowing more timely treatment of any health problems and reducing patient wait times. This partnership will ensure that patients receive quality, culturally-competent care in their medical home and that they fully understand diagnoses and providers' instructions in their native language. "We are very excited to help improve patient care in San Diego as part of this new relationship with ONRAD," explains La Maestra CFO, Elizabeth David.

In addition, being able to charge patients for an additional service, instead of referring them out, will allow La Maestra to offset the costs of serving the uninsured.

La Maestra currently has five health centers located throughout San Diego County in inner-city and rural areas that provide medical, dental and mental healthcare, including a school-based satellite medical and dental clinic, and its staff has worked tirelessly to meet the increasingly disparate health and social needs of over 92,000 men, women, and children since opening in 1990. Most of La Maestra's employees are from the culturally diverse populations we serve; they collectively speak 20 languages and understand the broad range of issues that can affect healthcare.
