In discussing safe ways to place inferior vena cava filters with IR colleagues in SR, we found that we could do this on completely anti-coagulated patients if we used the jugular vein and ultrasound for guidance. There is no need to stop the patient’s anticoagulation medicine due to the risk of puncturing the femoral artery during venous catheterization. It’s been a huge advantage for patients, referrers, and our practices.
Strategic Radiology is a nationwide coalition of quality-focused independent, private radiology practices representing more than 1,500 radiologists who provide medical imaging services to more than 275 hospitals and 450 outpatient sites in more than 25 states.
Strategic Radiology (SR) stepped into the health insurance business on Jan. 1, 2023, when it launched SR Health to provide coverage for the shareholders and employees of its 32 independent private practice member groups. In creating a self-funded captive insurance plan—totally owned by members—the coalition anticipates that members will achieve up to 30% or more savings on premiums, greater control of coverage options, and visibility into plan data.
