WakeMed Signs Agreement with Raleigh Radiology to Provide Imaging Services Interpretation and Reporting
Agreement provides greater value and efficiency to patients, and reinforces organizations’ commitment to quality, value and innovation
WakeMed Health & Hospitals is pleased to announce that the health system has signed a new contract with Raleigh Radiology to provide professional interpretation and reporting services for imaging studies performed at all of WakeMed’s inpatient and outpatient sites beginning August 27, 2017. This relationship will allow WakeMed to provide greater value and efficiency to our patients who require imaging studies.
WakeMed’s relationship with Raleigh Radiology has been expanding since they were named the preferred imaging partner for WakeMed Key Community Care (WKCC), WakeMed’s accountable care organization (ACO). In 2015, WKCC selected Raleigh Radiology as their outpatient radiology partner of choice based on their quality, value and efficiency. Through this relationship, our patients and providers have experienced first-hand Raleigh Radiology’s exceptional service, quality, and innovation, delivered at a greater value.
“Our decision to work with Raleigh Radiology supports WakeMed’s vision of aligning with like-minded organizations who share our values and commitment to focusing on exceptional quality, service and value for our patients and their families,” explains Donald Gintzig, WakeMed president & CEO. “With nearly 400,000 imaging studies performed annually across the WakeMed system, this relationship plays an integral role in our ability to serve the growing needs of both our patients and physician partners. We look forward to building on this agreement to collaborate and integrate with Raleigh Radiology in new ways in the future.”
Raleigh Radiology provides broad subspecialty expertise and aligns closely with WakeMed’s major service lines and imaging centers of excellence, including emergency, heart and vascular, neuro, interventional radiology, breast health and more. They are also committed to enhancing their pediatric specialty services. As this relationship begins, WakeMed will maintain the same level of services and subspecialty coverage currently offered to our providers and patients, with the ultimate goal of expanding over time.
