Increasing hospital teams’ capacity to care for patients in more efficient ways—at scale
Educate. Advocate. Protect. The Associate developed program, Hands-Free Radiology TM is designed for a more compassionate, effective and safer approach to obtaining diagnostic images. We’re always looking for innovative ways to further improve care methods, and our Hands-Free Radiology Program demonstrates the world-class medicine and compassion we’re known for.
Hands-Free techniques help our veterinary technicians and assistants minimize the stress of obtaining x-rays for our patients, reduce Associate exposure to radiation and also allow diagnostic images to be obtained in less time with fewer exposures.
The goal is quality images obtained the first time while improving the safety and overall experience for our teams and patients.
Dedicated to training and education, VCA’s Regional Technician Directors, Regional Medical Directors and Regional Operations Directors are supporting an individualized rollout approach throughout all our hospitals. Thanks to their efforts, our teams have completed more than 1,000 trainings, including over 100 in-person training sessions. VCA is a leading advocate for this industry change and is focusing on taking care of the future of veterinary medicine through education and shared stories and resources.
