Ultrasound machines provide numerous benefits to doctors and clinics in any practice. They provide the ability to see what the naked eye cannot, giving the doctor an inside view of what is going on with a person’s body without having to perform any invasive procedures that force a patient to deal with long recoveries on top the original issue. Because ultrasound machines can be costly, it is difficult to find them in every room that they are needed, forcing hospitals to transfer patients to other departments or deal with long wait times. One of the best ways to work around this is to use a portable ultrasound machine. The portable machine is not only convenient, but it is affordable and offers superior results for you and your patients.
Ensure Proper Diagnosis
One of the largest benefits of the portable ultrasound machine is the ability to ensure a proper diagnosis the first time. All too often, clinics that become too crowded or busy end up diagnosing without the ultrasound, which can lead to a wrong diagnosis. With an ultrasound machine that is portable, you can move the machine to where the patients are and give them an in-depth exam right away.
Save Time for Patients
Time is of the essence for patients, whether it is because they just do not want to wait or because they have an illness that needs immediate treatment. With a portable ultrasound machine, you do not have to worry about making patients wait for an available room with an ultrasound machine.
The portability of a machine, like the Sonosite M-Turbo, makes it easy to get an ultrasound completed no matter what room a patient is in or how crowded the facility may be at any given time. With the portability comes the ability to reduce the amount of time the patient is at your clinic or the amount of time he must wait for a proper diagnosis. The less time your patient must tie up a room, the more time you have to see additional patients.
Have the Convenience Patients Need
With a portable ultrasound machine, you can provide your patients with the convenience they desire. It provides a convenience for your practice too. There is no more running around looking for an available machine, delaying the treatment you provide not only that patient, but any subsequent patients waiting for you. This means that you can remain more focused on the current patient, the diagnosis and necessary treatment to ensure a satisfied patient and a proper diagnosis in the long run.
Get Patients Involved
Ultrasounds are known to be generally safe, in the sense of exposing patients to excessive levels of radiation. Because most patients are willing to accept the need for an ultrasound, they are better able to get involved with their diagnosis and treatment. Having an ultrasound machine that can be available whenever necessary in whichever room it is needed can help patients understand their illnesses better. Patients that have a full understanding of what they are experiencing will be more involved in the treatment phase, which means that they are more likely to take the steps you tell them to take in order to treat their illness.
There are Many Options
As with most other ultrasound machines, portable ultrasounds have many options depending on what you need. This gives you the ability to
provide your patients with even more benefits. For those doctors that perform pregnancy ultrasounds, the 3D/4D option could be beneficial for you and your patients. And for the cardiac
doctor, the ability to have cardiac options in a system like the GE Vivid IQ Premium helps to enhance your practice.
There are numerous brands and models for you to choose from when deciding to add a portable ultrasound machine to your practice. Read our article about the Top 8 Portable Ultrasound Systems of 2018 to learn more about each individual system.
With portable ultrasound machines, you are able to provide your patients with the level of service and integrity they desire from their medical practice. Being able to save time or spend quality time with your patients is a crucial component of having medical equipment that you need right there when you need it. When you are able to stay with the patient in the room and stay focused, you are better able to provide the right diagnosis and treatment as well as get the patient out in a timely manner. This works as a benefit to both the patient and your practice as the patient is happy to be able to get on with his day and you can have the ability to take on more patients.
