Healthconnect Welcomes Randall A. Stenoien, MD and HMI
Randall A. Stenoien, M.D. is leading a group of radiologists forward on the frontiers of teleradiology
Healthconnect recently announced Houston Medical Imaging is the first medical imaging provider in the Greater Houston area to make diagnostic images easily accessible to community physicians through the community health portal. Leading Houston Medical Imaging is CEO, Dr. Randall Stenoien.
Through the exchange, Dr. Stenoien looks forward to reducing unnecessary repeat tests and patient exposure to radiation, "By participating in the Healthconnect network we are providing patients an opportunity to avoid exposure to additional ionizing radiation if the appropriate test has already been performed within a reasonable timeframe. It will also help our patients to manage out-of-pocket expenses for repeated tests that might not be reimbursed by their insurance companies." According to the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements, there was a seven fold increase in exposure to ionizing radiation from medical procedures from 1980 to 2006.
Dr. Stenoien, a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been serving Texas residents for over 25 years. He brings a wealth of interventional and oncology experience with interest in cross-sectional imaging and nuclear medicine.
