3 trends that could impact your orthopedic practiceWhat they mean for clinicians, patients, and in-office MRI

If the latest trends are any indication, the number of patients needing MRI exams is significant due to COVID-related backlogs and higher acuity cases. This, in combination with the aging population and payor pressure to move imaging and procedures to outpatient settings will impact the success of your in-office MRI service.

Here are the 3 trends you should consider as you prepare your orthopedic practice for the future.

Due to the aging population and the volume of backlogged cases, the number of people who need your orthopedic expertise is likely to rise. As demand increases, successful in-office MRI services will support a wide range of clinical capabilities (including spine, hip, and implant imaging) to help manage the growing volume and add revenue. If your MRI system can support a wide range of capabilities with high clinical confidence, is user friendly, and offers a low total cost of ownership, you may also be able to speed time to treatment for your patients.

Those practices that are paying attention to these trends and are more strategic in their MRI service will be better prepared to manage cases now and in the future.
