With the quadruple aim we create solutions for value-based healthcare by improving patient and staff experience, with better outcomes and lower costs as a result.
Improved Patient experience
In radiology, patient anxiety over imaging procedures may impact the accuracy of diagnostic exams. The apprehension a patient experiences prior to an imaging study can impact results, skewing or delaying a diagnosis. In a study evaluating 172 patients undergoing diagnostic exams, 69% experienced high levels of anxiety, which can lead to hyperactivity of the autonomic nervous system and produce symptoms that can directly influence exam results. In another study, anxiety reactions – including increased heart rate and blood pressure – were reported in up to 30% of patients undergoing MRI scans.
Improved Staff experience
Most of the time MRI-staff work in a tight and challenging schedule. The increasing pressure to realize lower healthcare costs, combined with the growing demand for medical imaging results in a higher workload. This makes it more likely that they will experience burnout. This is illustrated by recent research (2019) we conducted in France, the US, UK and Germany showed alarming numbers of technologists report moderate or severe levels of job stress (FR=40%; US=44%; UK=54%; GER=97%).  Technologists in these countries also reported a significant incidence of moderate or high burnout (UK=30%; FR=33%; US=36%; GER=97%). Taken together with burnout levels for radiologists, we’re witnessing a serious, systemic problem across imaging.
The radiology department plays a critical role in diagnosing and guiding patients into the right treatment plans. Today, advances in medical imaging technology and radiology protocols hold tremendous potential to help radiologists reach more consistent, confident diagnoses faster. 
Lower cost of care
Over the past few years MRI has experienced tremendous growth in the number of scans performed annually, due in large part to an increase in chronic diseases and a growing aging population. At the same time, MRI scanners are becoming faster with techniques like Compressed SENSE. These technology advancements not only contribute to faster turnaround times and a better patient experience, but help boost overall productivity of imaging departments.
