Hot Shots Nuclear Medicine is staffed by licensed nuclear pharmacists with advanced education, training and experience in the preparation, distribution, and pharmacology of radiopharmaceuticals. We are always available to answer your questions, research requested information, and immediately respond to any problems that may arise. Our products are prepared in an aseptic environment under a laminar air flow hood. Some radiopharmaceutical kits are capable of supporting bacterial growth, so adherence to strict aseptic procedures to assure sterility is very important. We can make available to your department the most progressive therapies and diagnostic tests in areas that we serve. Many of the recently released and forthcoming radiopharmaceuticals are more laboratory intensive and require additional work to prepare and often entail more difficult Quality Control processes.
Summary: Preparation and procurement of radiopharmaceuticals is our specialty.
Hot Shots Nuclear Medicine services are designed to allow you to offer your patients the most complete line of the highest quality products available. Our services are designed to maximize your department's overall efficiency and thus, improve your patient satisfaction and profitability. Dose preparation, labeling, q.c., disposal, and record keeping is performed at the radiopharmacy, so technologists are free to concentrate fully on performing studies and delivering quality patient care. Detailed invoicing is provided to simplify your paperwork. Your drug cost per patient is fixed and remains constant even when your patient load changes, so administration may project or budget your costs and revenues much more accurately.
Summary: Our services are designed to provide your patients with the best care and to save you time and money.
We offer the widest product line available. No other radiopharmacy or manufacturer offers a more complete product line. Each manufacturer has products that are unique and a number of new companies with unique products will be entering the nuclear medicine marketplace in the near future. Hot Shots Nuclear Medicine serves as a one-call source for all nuclear medicine products and for information about new, existing, and investigational products. Furthermore, we regularly buy from multiple sources so that we are better positioned in times of vendor specific shortages.
Summary: Utilize our buying advantages to benefit your department by saving money and gaining access to the resources that all manufacturers provide.
Hot Shots Nuclear Medicine's unit dose (single patient) pricing allows you to know exactly what the drug expense will be for each patient. Individual patient prescriptions are invoiced at the end of each week. Each individual patient dose comes with a prescription copy that facilitates approval for third party reimbursement for the drug in addition to the procedure. In contrast to you buying the raw materials from a manufacturer and preparing the drugs yourself, we dispense individual prescriptions ready for administration to your patients. Such prescriptions are provided from a licensed pharmacy and meet all required federal and state standards for quality, purity, sterility, and labeling.
Summary: Simplified patient billing documentation to third parties
