X-ray machines have been around for a long time. But what makes them so important?
X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation that can pass through the parts of the body and produce shadow-like images of bones and other body organs. An x-ray procedure can help doctors diagnose, monitor, and treat many medical conditions.
Why an American Made portable x-ray system matters
Many of us have heard for years the terms “Made in America” or “Made in the USA” and maybe it makes us feel safer, more patriotic or just plain better. The terms are used for a variety of products throughout a wide range of industries but do we really know how something “Made in America” affects the actual product?
Perhaps if we’re talking about something as simple as a pen, pencil, tape, or garden hose, etc. then yes, we still feel a sense of pride to know it’s made in America. However, when we’re talking about products with a more significant impact on our lives and health then the term takes on a whole new level of importance.

Is it Time to Replace Your Portable X-ray Equipment
Medical imaging has a vital role in modern healthcare systems. Just like any other type of device, medical imaging isn’t free from malfunctioning. Older portable x-ray equipment has a high risk of breakdowns. This can cause diagnosis and treatment delays for the patient.
Equipment failures can also compromise the safety problems both for the patient and the medical staff. As a result of wear and tear, all medical imaging equipment eventually needs to be replaced.
So how do you know when is it time to replace your x-ray equipment?

How Urgent Care centers can drive patient loyalty
One of the most significant factors to a successful business is having a strong, long-term relationship with your patients. As urgent care centers continue to rise in popularity, it is vital to building your patients’ trust and loyalty, especially in this increasingly competitive industry.
According to the Urgent Care Association of America, it is crucial for urgent care centers to invest in marketing, facilities, systems, and culture to create an excellent patient experience. Merely meeting your patient’s expectations isn’t going to be enough to make your patients believers. Good service may give them satisfaction, but giving patients an outstanding healthcare experience increases patient retention and earns their trust and loyalty. In return, loyal patients will want to guarantee the success of the provider or practice to which they feel loyal to – YOU. That includes promoting your services to their families and friends.
