Urgent Nuclear Stress Test Lab Costs Reductions for Physician Practices in Need
Date:5/5/2010

Finding new and innovative ways to cut costs and optimize operations has always been a priority, but priority has become necessity due to the recent 2010 reimbursement rate cuts. Reducing testing costs and increasing revenues, while not compromising patient care, has overnight become the number one concern among many Cardiology practices. In conjunction with select cosponsors, University Nuclear and Diagnostics (www.nuclearstresstest.net) has recently launched project “Awareness and Education,” specifically designed to bring about awareness and to inform physician practices and hospitals nationwide of sorely needed solutions for reducing testing costs, and how to immediately implement them.

(PRWEB) May 5, 2010 -- Nuclear stress testing is arguably the number one diagnostic for many if not a majority of cardiology practices including capitated models which want to use the modality but must tightly control costs per patient. For being such a critical reference tool, current reimbursement cuts have negatively and severely impacted Doctors’ ability to utilize it effectively. Research shows that facilities' cost per cardiac stress test ranges between $300 - $600, depending on the practice, with the average cardiologist performing about 800 tests annually. With reimbursements for these tests set at their lowest levels in history (current Medicare rates are $400 - $750 depending upon region), in many cases, the practice will actually endure a financial loss each study.

In an effort to assist physician practices and hospitals respond to the recent cuts, University Nuclear & Diagnostics (UND) in conjunction with select cosponsors (dates and locations available at http://NuclearStressTest.ne
