Care for the Vulnerable
We provide 24 hour coverage providing accurate and rapid assessment of patients with chest pain at any time, as well tertiary cardiac diagnoses in EP, ACHD, Structural interventions, and Aortic diseases.
Physician-designed, Owned, and Operated
IHS is a physician-owned and physician-managed national imaging medical practice of highly trained, highly collegial cardiologists and radiologists with special expertise in interpretation of cardiac CT and cardiac MRI. We value excellence in patient care above all else. Whether it is at the patient’s bedside listening to symptoms or on a cloud-based network using a highly technical skill, care of the patient is what is most important to us.
Excellence in Patient Care
We seek out the best physicians to join our practice focusing on excellence in patient care above all else. All our doctors are long-term owners of our practice, collaborate instantly for complex diagnoses, and achieve the best patient outcomes possible.
24 Hour Coverage
We offer American College of Cardiology endorsed rapid chest pain pathways and solutions and full support to our partner hospitals. We provide 24 hour coverage providing accurate and rapid assessment of patients with chest pain at any time. And as a result, within 2 hours of patient presentation, we provide a decision to either admit the patient to the hospital or to discharge home, with or without specific medications and outpatient follow up.
We will tailor our service to a hospital’s needs and can show that the financial costs to partner with us are far outweighed by increased hospital revenue and decreased costs from leaner processes of care, in addition to the proven patient survival benefits. Our service reduces the time to diagnosis, reduces unnecessary hospital admissions, reduces duration of hospitalization, reduces the use of downstream repeat testing. IHS can tailor our service to the specific needs of the institution whether the model of care is fee-for-service or value-based.
Highest Level of Quality
IHS provides the highest level of quality assurance. Our physicians are involved with the patient from the acquisition of the initial EKG to the final recommendations and are available throughout the process.
IHS increases patient satisfaction by streamlining care, shortening time to diagnosis, and improving efficiency for patients in the emergency department and in the hospital. Because the path to diagnosis and treatment is clear and short, patients feel more satisfied with the service IHS and our partner hospitals provide.
