Developing a Roadmap for Investment
“In a highly competitive field like radiology, trust is everything, but knowledge is power.”
These were Tiffany Mullis-Brittain’s words when interviewed regarding the path Catawba Radiology Associates took to make informed decisions about investments and technology. As Catawba Radiology’s Executive Director, Mullis-Brittain knew that the first step was understanding the myriad options and the costs associated with each.
Catawba Radiology engaged Canopy Partners to perform an objective, independent assessment of her practice’s IT and revenue cycle operations. The goal was to help their group develop a roadmap for future investments and provide recommendations to improve their business and competitiveness. The assessments provided insight into current gaps and deficient processes. “We got to know and trust Canopy Partners through the assessment project. It was a big deal. We learned a great deal about the market and how to optimize our workflow, processes and performance,” notes Mullis-Brittain.
Canopy Partners worked with Catawba Radiology’s key stakeholders to build a custom strategy for moving toward the vision that their imaging organization developed for the future.

As Worth Saunders, Canopy CEO, often reminds people, “You can’t improve what you are not measuring.”
“Trust with physicians is tough to gain and maintain. Canopy does this so well because they are radiologists at heart,” says Mullis-Brittain. “Canopy gave us the information we needed to ask the right questions. In the end, it was a tremendous experience and engaging with Canopy was a no-brainer.”
Transparency, trust, best practices, cutting-edge technology – just a few of the ways that Canopy Partners is helping to fulfill its mission of elevating the role of medical imaging in the healthcare value chain.
