Connecting Radiology | Enabling collaboration and professional development

(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING, Rebekah Moan) -- In a new policy that could make hospital-based radiologists breathe a bit easier, NightHawk Radiology has announced limits on what it will do to obtain new contracts in hospital settings. Recently, the company said that under its “Commitment to Community,” it will not do business with hospitals directly or indirectly unless: The hospital doesn’t currently have a radiology group providing services, and hasn’t had a group doing so for a reasonable period of time. The hospital is serviced by a radiology group and the radiology group invites NightHawk or a practice management organization to enter into a service agreement with them. The hospital initiates an open competition to consider changing the radiology group servicing it. NightHawk would consider supporting a practice management organization if neither the incumbent radiology group nor any competing radiology group is a NightHawk customer.
