EMSOW Weekly Newsletter – August 26, 2020

Mobile diagnostic businesses, correctional facilities, and radiology providers take advantage of state-of-the-art PACS, a zero-install DICOM Viewer with a comprehensive set of report templates, as well as a robust system for patient scheduling, technologist dispatching, and billing. Image interpretation by a trusted radiologist licensed in your state is also a great opportunity we offer.

The latest updates will help you include discounts in your contracts, encourage your personnel to enter complete patient information and track TAT more precisely. Besides, we have made a minor improvement for correctional facilities.

If you’re not with EMSOW yet, visit our website, check out the services, and schedule a demo. You will see how it works (and even try it!), have your questions answered, and compare prices.
