Franklin, TN (PRWEB) May 10, 2012

Its not easy to predict the impact of Health Care Reform. As health care experiences dramatic change, one of the most widely applicable areas of the industry, Medical Imaging, continues to be under attack.

Medical imaging is often cited as a driver of increased spending on health care as diagnostic testing is used on a broad-range of patients from pediatrics to geriatrics.

In order to cut costs, insurance providers are insisting that the use of imaging must be curtailed while enlisting a host of creative means to limit exam ordering. Meanwhile, the imaging clinicians counter with the multitude of clinical insights new technology delivers that are critical to a proper and timely diagnosis. Cost is not the only issue. It is also a battle for patient access, and concerns from patient advocacy groups across the US.

Instead of waiting to see what happens under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), researchers, data analysts, and industry professionals at Regents Health Resources (Franklin, TN) dedicated themselves to find the answers.

The Tennessee-based specialty consulting firm completed a first-of-its-kind national study to evaluate the future of this multi-billion dollar conflict between PPACA, insurance companies, and the imaging industry.

Regents study provides a clearer picture of the future. Utilizing hard data, they have forecast the impact of the expected influx of new patients gaining access to high tech health care services when PPACA takes effect.

Key research results include:

Imaging use by state, zip code, age group, and modality
Uninsured population
Forecast additional spending on imaging services under Health Reform
And much more
