Advanced Radiology Services (ARS) is one of the nation’s leaders in the practice of radiology. We are committed to state of the art technologies, from clinical procedures and applications to IT infrastructure. Our sophisticated IT capabilities allow us to provide a 24/7 subspecialized distributed reading model that rivals the national teleradiology companies, but we are not a teleradiology company. We are a boots-on-the-ground, private practice radiology group, with local presence and local relationships.
Formed in 1997, the group has grown to be one of the largest independent physician-owned practices in the country with 214 radiologists serving 30 hospitals and 10 health care systems. The Michigan based practice utilizes a comprehensive Distributed Radiology reading solution to interpret 2.8 million studies annually and covers a significant portion of Michigan. The practice is supported by the wholly owned subsidiary Strategic Administrative and Reimbursement Services (STARS). STARS employs more than 180 individuals and is led by experts in practice management, information technology, revenue cycle administration and legal services.
Our primary focus is clinical quality and patient safety; we are engaged in continuous analysis of peer review and quality metrics to ensure we are providing the highest level of patient care. Our clients include Spectrum Health, Bronson Health, Holland Hospital, and McLaren Hospitals in addition to Ascension Macomb Oakland in Warren and Madison Heights.
