Question / Intervention Goal / Objectives
Green Imaging is owned and operated by board-certified radiologists who manage a virtual medical imaging network (CT scans. MRIs, x-rays, etc.) with locations nationwide. The company offers transparent pricing, centralized scheduling, software that keeps providers up to date on status of referrals, and centralized viewing and reporting software. The objective is to provide quality medical imaging services for a lower cost.
Green Imaging compared its fees with the Healthcare Bluebook Regional Fair Price (RFP) for each medical imaging service offered.
