MOBILE ULTRASOUND TESTING

Contract Health Services, Inc. comes to physician's offices and to hospitals, providing cardiac, vascular and abdominal/pelvic ultrasound testing.

CHS has three options for making in-office testing a revenue source for the ordering physician, and two options for hospitals.

REASONS FOR UTILIZING CHS MOBILE ULTRASOUND

Quick Turnaround: Turnaround time is typically 48 hours. The test data can be taken to a board certified cardiologist or radiologist for an interpretation which will be sent back to the ordering physician quickly. Some physicians choose to perform their own interpretations and bill for this component, resulting in instant turnaround time.

Convenience: Testing is performed in an exam or procedure room at the ordering physician's office. Patients are scheduled by that physician's office and do not have to travel or deal with other facilities.

Interpretations: CHS can take test data to either a board-certified cardiologist or radiologist for interpretation. Some ordering physicians and hospitals choose to provide their own interpretation and do patient billing for this component.

Quality: CHS uses Phillips (formerly Hewlett-Packard) high-end ultrasound equipment that is maintained under manufacturers service plans. All sonographers are either ARDMS or CCI registered or fulfilling prerequisite work requirements in order to sit for these exam registries. The level of diagnostic testing patients receive is comparable to that offered in major medical centers.

Revenue Options: All revenue options are in compliance with Stark I and II regulations.
  1. CHS pays rent to ordering physician's practice for floor space and office support used.
  2. CHS charges wholesale rates to physician or hospital who then bills 3rd parties.
  3. CHS leases technician and machine to the physician or hospital who then bills 3rd parties.

CHS has provided PRN services for all of the large hospitals in Knoxville, TN, for Methodist Hospital in Oak Ridge and many other large hospitals in East Tennessee.
