Client Reviews

Arun G. Patel, MD
Chairman of Radiology, Bon Secours Cottage Health Services

“We’ve seen more than a 30% increase in Outpatient MRI volume since you’ve started. ... the improvements you’ve implemented indicate that we’re on track to see a $1 million improvement in Radiology in this first year; you’ve been able to add at least $700,000 to the Radiology bottom line in the past 8 months.”

William C. Haugh
COO, Lifepoint Hospitals - Memorial Hospital of Martinsville and Henry County

“I can honestly state that our partnership with Ivy Ventures to introduce the [SNAPCare ®] program to our medical staff was the best growth initiative we had in 2008." "One of the underestimated benefits that we did not consider when evaluating this program [SNAPCare ®] is the fact it has created a new “channel” of communication between physician practices and the hospital.”
