Similar to other healthcare specialties, an expansion of business has not just brought additional revenues and possibilities but also responsibilities, some of which Teleradiologists could do without:
- Teleradiology, given its data-centric nature, is covered under HIPAA which involves negotiating an intricate maze of medical and nonmedical data to prepare claims and then submit them electronically, which exposes them to considerable risk of claim rejection due to error in handling data
- What further adds to their overhead is that the state laws governing medical malpractice insurance coverage varies from state to state
- Additionally, HIPAA regulations requires Teleradiologists to put in place several IT security related measures to be in compliance
- Time spent on administrative activities, rejected claims and arranging for IT security together leads to misuse of resources and unpaid services, affecting their revenues
