Adoption of Radiology Services Outsourcing in Developed Countries to Drive Market
Outsourcing radiology services to well-trained radiologists, who can work for a relatively lower fraction of cost is profitable to the health care providers, according to macroeconomic principles. Hubs are, therefore, emerging in price-sensitive countries in Asia to handle the bulk of radiology reporting requirements. Radiologists providing services to the rich and developed countries are focusing more on improving their role as imaging consultants, which is considered to be a value addition to patient care in certain cases.
