Catawba Radiology Engages Canopy Partners to Transform Reading Environment

The Value of Getting an Objective, Independent Look at Your Practice from a Trusted Third Party

Catawba Radiology of Hickory, North Carolina has engaged Canopy Partners as consultants to help transform their practice’s clinical reading environment. The two companies have a long-standing relationship.

For this project, Catawba Radiology retained Canopy Partners to perform an objective, independent assessment of their 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 assessment provided insight into current gaps and deficient processes. Tiffany Mullis-Brittain, Executive Director, knew that the first step was understanding the universe of options and the costs associated with each.

“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 worked with our organization’s key stakeholders in helping to build a custom strategy to move towards the vision that we had for the future.”

At the conclusion of the assessment, Canopy provided a detailed report of key findings and recommendations to Catawba’s leadership team. This report included a roadmap for the future based on Canopy’s deep industry knowledge and expertise, gained from working with more than 130 radiology clients in 28 states.
