Seek Objective Guidance to Make Your Radiology Equipment Purchase and Installation Succeed

CANTON, OH--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Objective counsel is valuable in steering decisions on radiology equipment purchases, as the sheer complexity of the issues that must be addressed in deciding on and installing new technology can be daunting even for the most experienced medical imaging professionals.

The decision process should begin with a thorough analysis of the market conditions and radiology equipment needs of a hospital, surgical center, physician group or clinic. That's the word from Joe Palmisano, owner of Captive Radiology, the nation's leader in serving healthcare organizations seeking to upgrade their radiology equipment.

"There are many variables to consider and many forks in the road to a positive outcome in upgrading radiology equipment. It's a complicated process that nobody should have to manage without experienced guidance," Palmisano said. "We are pleased to be in a position to help make those decisions more productive and profitable. Hospital and clinic administrators can quickly become overwhelmed with information from well-intentioned representatives and contractors who have particular points of view they wish to sell."

To help clients get their heads above water in the flood of radiology equipment information, Captive Radiology helps them organize the decision process starting with thorough analysis.

"Determine your needs, the volume you expect to put through, your budget, your space and your timetable," Palmisano said. "We often are asked by our clients to develop the budget based on our analysis and experience. Then we make sure our clients have the radiology equipment that fits their budgets, and which is installed properly based on their space and medical imaging throughput needs."

Captive Radiology remains independent in decision-making throughout the radiology equipment upgrade process. "OEM sales persons' and contractors' jobs are to upsell -- and rightly so -- but the fact is, those pitches can become very confusing when it's time to compare the best proposals for the needs of the hospital, clinic or practice," Palmisano said.
