As Obamacare Approaches, Industry-Leading Mobile Imaging Company Axiom Helps Patients Save Money and Doctors Save Time
Published: Oct 09, 2013
(San Carols, CA) – Founded by husband and wife team Dr. Ken and Landon Steele, Axiom has provided industry-leading mobile imaging since 2004. Their efficient and effective imaging practices have helped them to be recognized as a premiere service prov ider in the healthcare sector, and success resulting from their business practices has placed them on the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private Companies for two years in a row.
"Axiom was started as a family-run business and has its roots in Silicon Valley, which is ground zero for new technology development in the world," said Landon Steele. Because of their commitment to technology and perfecting the mobile imaging experience, Axiom has outpaced their industry in several important categories, including:
- First in industry to offer 100% digital x-rays. "Even today, muc h of the mobile digital industry is not 100% digital," said Landon Steele. "Dr. Ken Steele has been sought out as an expert and has consulted for other companies throughout the United States on the benefits and use of cutting-edge digital equipment and his proprietary improvements."
- First in industry to offer patients and medical care professionals a full-service portal where they could log in and view both images and radiologist reports. Said Dr. Ken Steele: "This aspect of our process is one of the most important time- and money-saving aspects of our service. Doctors love getting immediate access to results and images rather than having to wait for someone to call them or fax them."
- Clearest pictures in the industry. Most digital imaging systems in hospitals average about 12 megapixels in resolution. The companies in the mobile imaging space that use digital technology typically use systems that are between 1.2 and 3.5 megapixels, certainly better than analogue films, but maybe not quite hospital caliber. Axiom’s DR systems shoot 27 megapixel images – better than hospital caliber.
- Fastest turn-around time in the industry. The typical turnaround time for mobile imaging is 6-8 hours. Axiom prides itself on offering 1-2 hour turnaround times routinely. Axiom was at the cutting edge of figuring out how to transmit digital images wirelessly from the patient’s bedside, eliminating a lot of unnecessary travel time.
"Time matters in health care. Period," said Dr. Ken Steele. "If a person falls or has some other event, the sooner that event is diagnosed and managed, the less morbidity and mortality that will occur. This is better for the patient and of course less expensive for the healthcare payer system."
Now Axiom is pushing the boundaries even farther. Said Landon Steele, "Hospital caliber means a high quality, high resolution x-ray done under certain time constraints and with reproducible, accurate and accessible results. We save money compared to transporting a patient to a hospital and we provide ultimate convenience for low mobility patients and their caregi vers. Our commitment to excellence was born out of the idea that doctors rely on timely and accurate diagnostics to make sometimes life-altering decisions for their patients. We get it, so we get it right."
