Services The company offers a set of imaging services, including MRI, CT, PET, nuclear medicine, X-ray, ultrasound, mammography, fluoroscopy and other related procedures. It focuses on providing standardized high quality imaging services, regardless of location, to ensure patients, physicians and payors consistency in service and quality. The company monitors patient satisfaction, timeliness of services to patients and reports to physicians. In the states in which the company provides services (except Florida), a lay person or any entity other than a professional corporation or similar professional organization is not allowed to practice medicine, including by employing professional persons or by having any ownership interest or profit participation in or control over any medical professional practice. The company provides management services and administration of the non-medical functions relating to the professional medical practice at the facility, including other functions, provision of clerical and administrative personnel, bookkeeping and accounting services, billing and collection, provision of medical and office supplies, secretarial, reception and transcription services, maintenance of medical records, and advertising, marketing and promotional activities. Seasonality The company typically experiences some seasonality to its business. During the first quarter of each year (year ended December 31, 2014) the company generally experiences the lowest volumes of procedures and the lowest level of revenue for any quarter during the year. This is primarily the result of two factors. First, the company’s volumes and revenue are typically impacted by winter weather conditions in its northeastern operations. In recent years, the company has observed greater participation in high deductible health plans by patients. As these high deductibles reset in January for most of these patients, it has observed that patients utilize medical services less during the first quarter, when securing medical care will result in significant out-of-pocket expenditures. Competition The company’s competitors include Alliance Healthcare Services, Inc.; and Diagnostic Imaging Group. Regulations The company is in compliance with the current Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 requirements, as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009, and comparable state laws. The company is in compliance with the rules and regulations that apply to the federal False Claims Act, as well as its state counterparts. History RadNet, Inc. was founded in 1985.
