Medical Imaging Staffing
Hospitals and medical facilities have a wide range of needs and any gap that results in these needs not being met can lead to poor patient care and a loss of revenue. West Coast HealthCare wants to help ensure that all of your medical imaging needs are being met.
WCH is an independent diagnostic testing facility that is licensed by Medicare and approved by Blue Cross/Blue Shield. If you are looking for medical imaging staffing services, we provide technologists who are registered in X-Ray, CAT Scan, and comprehensive Sonography. We have over 24 years of experience in managing radiologic personnel serving Las Vegas, Pahrump, and Tonopah, Nevada. We believe that this experience will allow us to better serve you and provide you with superior quality care and money saving Sonography services.
MEDICAL IMAGING STAFFING
WCH can assure you that your facility will receive highly educated Technologists who are JCAHO accredited, board-certified Radiologists and Cardiologists who not only perform the services but who can interpret the images in an efficient and timely manner. With our medical imaging staffing and network of ultrasound equipment, you can be confident that your facility will receive high-quality, low-cost service. Your company does not need to purchase any equipment or supplies and the only thing your facility needs to do is provide us with the space to perform the exams.
WHAT ULTRASOUNDS CAN BE PERFORMED?
WCH has experienced and professional staff who are highly capable of performing a number of ultrasounds that will be interpreted and shared with your facility and patients quickly and safely. Some of the ultrasounds WCH performs include, but are not limited to:
- Prostate (Transabdominal)
- Pelvic/OB/GYN (Transabdominal)
- Soft Tissue Neck/Thyroid
- Transcranial Doppler
- Lower and upper extremity arterial and venous
- Abdominal duplex of the aorta/iliac vein/superior mesenteric artery and vein, splenic artery and vein, hepatic vein, portal vein and all abdominal vessels.
- Adult Echocardiograms
- US Chest
- US Abdominal Wall
These are common outpatient exams; however, WCH can tailor our services to include ultrasounds for surgical and invasive procedures.
OUR MEDICAL IMAGING SERVICES ARE HIPAA COMPLIANT
West Coast HealthCare’s ultrasound equipment is connected with a central PACS system for image storage and report generation. Any information transferred through the PACS system is HIPAA compliant and encrypted for security. West Coast HealthCare’s PACS system is capable of all imaging modalities, has limitless memory, and can be used for all imaging exams.
Providers will have secure access to the PACS system through any portable device, phone, or through a PC to view images and receive ultrasound reports. When providers are added as an authorized user of the PACS system, an email will be generated to notify the provider that reports and images are in the final report stage. This will make it easy for providers to stay on top of completed reports because they will be notified through a fax or email. Access to the PACS system can be controlled, giving access for a specific time to a consulting provider, for example. The PACS system and GE software is capable of creating CDs for patient and physician use, shared access can be given easily to any authorized person, and USB/thumb drive portability is also available.
West Coast HealthCare offers a written profit warranty that we can generate a minimum of 30 percent gross profit margin in provision of ultrasound service, when the service is completed under WCH suggested guidelines. If we fail, WCH will decrease the contracted service cost through a discount in order to achieve the minimum profit promised. The table below illustrates an estimate of expenditure savings for the blended average of a year of ultrasound. (These estimates stated are based on the Las Vegas market).

At West Coast HealthCare, we only provide the best medical imaging staffing services so you can be confident that tasks are completed correctly and efficiently 100 percent of the time. We employ Technologists that will come to your facility when there is a gap in the personnel schedule or if you anticipate a busier than average day and are in need of additional hands. While many people may use the terms technologist and technician interchangeably, there are key differences between the two. These differences allow our technologists to complete a wider range of tasks, allowing your business to increase patient care.
These technicians operate a variety of medical imaging machinery, position the patients in a way that will ensure the best results, and perform x-rays. Technicians are unable to perform CT and mammograms. This trade requires usually less than one year in a vocational school setting.
The perception of a technician and Technologist is that they perform similar duties, however, the differences are the amount of education required to be a designated Technologist and the complexity of the tests they can perform. All Technologists complete either a two-year associate’s degree or four-year bachelor’s degrees and are also capable of holding supervisory positions.
ADVANCED JOB DUTIES OF A TECHNOLOGIST
- A Technologist is able to complete more complex work, often independently or under general direction.
- Radiologic Technologists often specialize in x-rays, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging. Specializing in these fields requires the Technologist to prepare the patient by asking questions, explaining the procedure, obtaining the patient’s history, and operating the equipment. They will then evaluate the images and update records.
- Our medical imaging staffing services can also provide your facility with diagnostic medical sonographers. These specialists use sound waves to generate images of organs and tissues. They often focus on certain areas of the body, such as the abdomen, breast, or cardiovascular system. They will then evaluate the images they produce.
- Technologists will relay important information to physicians.
When West Coast HealthCare employs Technologists, we ensure that they are fully capable of providing the necessary service that will enhance patient care. We understand that you want the best for your facility and patients, and we do our best to provide cost-saving medical imaging staffing services.
Serving the Las Vegas, Pahrump, and Tonopah, Nevada areas, WCH has Technologists who are JCAHO accredited as well as board-certified Radiologists and Cardiologists. When you need medical imaging staffing services, you can count on us to provide employees when you need them and who will perform tasks and duties efficiently. Providing our own equipment, the only thing you need to do is provide the space. We can perform ultrasounds from renal to prostate to musculoskeletal. All images will be stored in our PACS system, which is fully HIPAA compliant to ensure patient privacy.
