We strive to provide the fastest possible turnaround in reading and reporting on your patients’ tests.
Generally, the patients results will be ready within one business day.
Their results can be picked up by the patient (with ID) or delivered (within certain areas), emailed, uploaded in the dropbox or faxed to the physician. In some cases, if they wish to wait, their results may be ready within 1-2 hours.
Physicians authorized to use our PACS (Picture Archive and Communication System) will be able to view patient images and reports through a secured network as soon as the report is written. This will allow physicians to expedite patient care.
We can also fax you a preliminary copy of our Radiologist’s report as soon as it is prepared.
Naturally, if our radiologists detect something in your patient’s test that they feel requires your prompt attention, they will contact you immediately.
Our PACS (Picture Archive and Communication System) system provides you immediate access to your patients imaging results through a secure network.
Elite archives images to a Picture Archive and Communication System (PACS), expediting patient care by allowing physicians to electronically access patient images and reports more quickly and easily than ever before.
To access these systems, a physician or staff member must contact us at 876-754-4169
and ask to speak someone about setting up access.
To schedule a test for one of your patients, you or a member of your office staff can call us at 876-754-4963.
Depending on the specific services required, we will usually be able to schedule your patient’s test for within 24 to 48 hours, in some cases, on the same day.
Please inform the patient to arrive 15-20 minutes before your appointment time in order to fill out necessary form and expedite your exam. In order to provide an efficient scheduling to all of our patients, we reserve the right to reschedule their appointment, if they arrive more than 15 minutes past your appointment time.
To enable us to schedule and complete your patient’s tests as quickly as possible, it is important we receive the following information at the time of scheduling:
• Patient’s full name and date of birth
• Patient’s home address
• Patient’s cellular or home telephone number
• Procedure/Exam needed
• If the patient has medical insurance that will cover the testing modality you are prescribing, the name and phone number of the insurance carrier and the patient’s insurance ID number.
As you know, some insurance carriers require pre-authorization for certain types of testing. We will inform you if pre-authorization is needed. If pre-authorization is needed, a letter will be submitted for approval. A letter confirming the amount of the insurance carrier’s coverage, will be sent to us within 3 business days.
Appointments for these pre-authorization tests will be made 4 to 5 days in advance to accommodate the approval process. In some cases, or emergencies, the patient may choose to pay in advance(and get their testing done immediately). We will give them a form which they can fill out and submit for reimbursement. There is no guarantee of reimbursement.
