Teleradiology services can support health systems, clinics, rural health, critical access hospitals, retail health centers and government medical centers. Part of the growth in teleradiology came from the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue with the recovery of diagnostic imaging post-pandemic.
The advancements in technology, shortage of qualified radiologists and physicians and the need for improved diagnostic services has prompted hospitals, radiology groups, clinics and medical imaging facilities to implement teleradiology services.
Teleradiology growth and outlooks beyond 2020:
Allied Market Research’s report, titled “Teleradiology Market” stated “The global teleradiology market accounted for $2,709 million in 2017 and is expected to reach $10,621 million by 2025 with a CAGR of 18.4% from 2018 to 2025.”
With the financial constraints in the healthcare system, Teleradiology improves overall radiologist workflow, patient care and can be cost-effective by reducing on-site costs. Teleradiology service provides coverage during the most challenging times during nighthawk hours which is why many healthcare facilities choose to outsource to ensure 24/7 diagnostic imaging timely for providers and patients.
