Charlotte Radiology is proud to be one of the founding members of Strategic Radiology, which is now comprised of more than 1,000 radiologists from across the country. As a member, we collaborate on best practice approaches to imaging and patient care, as well as share data for benchmarking purposes and consolidate certain practice expenses. Our ultimate goal as a Strategic Radiology partner is to provide higher quality care and more cost-efficient delivery of medical imaging.
Strategic Radiology LLC was recently established when sixteen like-minded, progressive radiology groups realized they shared many of the same visions, values, and goals. This core team saw the opportunity in developing a formalized collaborative model where sharing talent, information, and processes would benefit individual groups and thereby improve service and quality to the patients and medical institutions they serve.
A key strategic initiative is the internal sharing of medical imaging studies and related healthcare information to improve patient care. Peer-to-peer review of medical imaging studies enables radiologists to maximize clinical expertise. SR also intends to further expand patient access to radiology subspecialization within member groups via a common platform and establish measurable standards for clinical quality.
SR is physician-led and brings together over 1,000 expert radiologists creating a true national footprint, with partner groups currently providing services in states coast-to-coast. Each group is regional leader and has a uniform desire for excellence in clinical practice. Through collaboration and scale, SR endeavors to improve patient quality of care and service while simultaneously improving economic efficiency of the individual practices. Through collaboration and scale, SR endeavors to improve patient outcomes and clinical quality while controlling costs and utilization.
