ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- New Mexico Software, Inc. , d/b/a Net Medical Xpress (OTC Bulletin Board NMXC), announced today that it is experiencing increasing and substantial growth in teleradiology cases. The company said it expects total case volume to increase nearly 19% in 2012 over 2011.
Nestor Pena, Vice President, Operations, Diagnostic Unit, said, "Our overall volume is approaching 300,000 cases yearly. This is substantially above where we started in 2008." So far in December alone, Pena said, the company has hired four additional radiologists bringing the total to 59 and two additional cardiologists raising that total to 17 to meet the growing demand.
"Our rapid growth is a testament to the expertise of our radiologists and cardiologists who are routinely delivering high levels of quality patient care. Another reason for our success is our turn around times are averaging 16 minutes, which we believe is one of the best records in the industry. We anticipate volume from new customers will steadily grow as telemedicine is further embraced with the rollout of the Affordable Health Care Act."
Net Medical CEO Dick Govatski said, "There is tremendous opportunity for our teleradiology healthcare customers with our growing crossover capability connecting diagnostic and clinical units. We are launching a 'Gold Seal' Net Medical affiliate program to enable these companies to offer our diagnostic telemedicine programs to their existing customers, which will significantly enhance and expand their ability to provide quality healthcare to a broader base. We anticipate initially certifying partner companies in the first quarter of 2013."Net Medical Xpress' telemedicine programs provide diagnostic and clinical medical services to mobile companies, urgent care facilities, hospitals, trauma centers, imaging centers, jails, nursing homes, corporate health departments, and outpatient medical facilities.
