Canopy Partners Announces National Launch of Radiology Concierge Service Desk

An Outsourced Call Center Service That Improves Radiologist Efficiency & Productivity. 

Greensboro, N.C., December 4, 2018 

In response to strong client demand, Canopy Partners has recently launched an outsourced call center for supporting radiologists in the many communication and administrative tasks that impact their workflow. The program, called the Radiology Concierge Desk, is extremely effective at improving service for referring physicians and other healthcare personnel by ensuring they can get to the right radiologist to answer their question. It also improves efficiency of radiologists by reducing interruptions so that radiologists can focus more of their time on reading exams and providing accurate interpretations.

The Radiology Concierge Desk leverages a “Smart Worklist” and a team of “Professional Radiology Assistants”, to divert phone calls and other administrative tasks to support personnel, who can handle many tasks that commonly fall to radiologists in the reading room. By bundling these two solutions together Canopy Partners has created a highly differentiated offering that can improve a radiologist’s productivity by 5-10%, saving each radiologist 3 to 6 mins per hour. The program can also improve accessibility, turnaround times and quality of care by enabling the right study to be assigned to the right radiologist at the right time, every time.



Canopy Partners Launches CANOPY CARE - An End-To-End Referral Platform for Medical Imaging Providers

Greensboro NC, February 2017

Canopy CARE streamlines the entire imaging referral process, making it faster and easier to receive orders, obtain authorizations, and deliver results.

Canopy Partners, a North Carolina-based healthcare technology company, just released an innovative software solution called Canopy CARE, an end-to-end automated referral management platform for radiology and imaging providers.

Canopy CARE – Clinical Automated Referral Engine - streamlines the imaging patient experience while reducing claims denials and accelerating cash collections. With Canopy CARE, administrative burdens are reduced because it automates much of the manual workflow associated with eligibility checking, payment estimation, and even prior-authorization.

“In 2016, the CAQH Index, a respected industry source, estimated that the healthcare industry could save $9.4 billion annually with electronic claims transactions. As a partner concerned with effective and efficient business practices for imaging providers, we took notice and found a solution,” noted Worth Saunders, Canopy Partners CEO.

How does Canopy CARE work?

The Canopy CARE platform is built on technology already in use at more than 500 hospitals across the country. Canopy Partners added features and tailored the software specifically for the outpatient imaging world, including a real-time dashboard to monitor the status of every patient encounter and claim.

“The physicians in our community, as well as our office staff, were getting bogged down in the sending and receiving of paperwork. The process for referring patients to us had frankly become too burdensome and lengthy a process. Something had to give. We asked Canopy to come up with an idea to help,” said Bob White, COO of Greensboro Imaging.
