About the Diagnostic Radiology Market

The U.S. diagnostic radiology market is estimated at $80 billion, which constitutes up to 10% of all healthcare spending. With rising healthcare costs, increasing numbers of employers are shifting healthcare expenses to employees, who also are experiencing rising deductibles and out-of-pocket costs as well as increasing premiums.  Some employers are dropping coverage. It is also estimated that there are currently 50 million uninsured in the United States.  As a result, consumerism in healthcare is at its highest level.  Simultaneously, experts predict that internet traffic will quadruple by the year 2014.  Patients demand real-time information enabling the comparison of quality reviews and accessibility.  FindRad.com caters to these trends and is well positioned to become a world leader in the radiology segment. The ultimate goal is to improve healthcare of millions.
