Plano Company Creates Mobile Radiology System for Hospitals to Protect Doctors, Patients from COVID-19
Local Profile’s Danny Gallagher covered the serious concerns about how the spread of the coronavirus could affect the functionality and effectiveness of hospital systems, especially now that the US has the highest number of confirmed cases in the world, according to Johns Hopkins University of Medicine.
One of the biggest challenges for hospitals is preventing the spread of the virus to medical professionals without reducing staff to the point of patient overload. A Plano medical imaging company may have provided one piece of this pandemic puzzle for radiology departments in hospitals across the Dallas-Fort Worth area and beyond.
“When the corona outbreak happened and we realized the situation was going to be pretty dire, we said how can we protect doctors and continue to deliver patient care and also be available to our referring physicians should they have any questions for the radiologist,” says Dhruv Chopra, the chief executive officer of Collaborative Imaging of Plano.
