Northland Imaging Services: We are proud to announce the startup of Northland Imaging Services, LLC.  We have retained all ofthe previous staff and ahve now acquired another Mobile MRI unit to agument our fleet.  New contracts have been sent to clients and much of hte equipment is transferred to each partner.  We have contracted with Calscan to come on site and improve hte image quality and also make the scans process faster.  Over the next few months we will also be working to accredit the new entity with JCAHO.  We have enjoyed our association with Montana Health Network but feel that this wholy-owned entity will help us better serve our members. 

Clinic Services: Clinic services focuses on improving health care delivery through primary care clinics. In addition to disease management and quality improvement, clinic redesign workshops are available to our members. Billing support is also available to members.

Clinics are an integral partner for the future of hospitals and long term care facilities. Northland is developing approaches to help connect clinics and hospitals digitally so patient information can flow between each entity.

Telemedicine Services: Northland provides members the opportunity to participate in teleconference call capabilities for one-on-one clinical consults or group meetings of up to 50 locations. Members can take advantage of these services for educational purposes as well as administrative meetings. Telemedicine is the first step of multi-step approach of bringing connective information technology to all member sites. Individuals in your community will appreciate being able to stay in their home town to receive many specialty services.
