A Busy Week at RSNA 2013
by Helene Gey, Vice-President of Marketing, Intelerad
Since Sunday morning when we first opened our booth, there has been a non-stop stream of visitors interested in learning more about our solutions. From answering questions on the spot, to providing demos of our solutions’ capabilities, we’ve kept quite busy, which is something we are thankful for.
Prior to this year’s RSNA, we released a handful of solutions that revolve mainly around three trends: leveraging data to drive performance; workflow automation; and self-service and universal access.
In terms of leveraging data, we launched two analytics tools (Intelerad Analytics and Intelerad Patterns), that will provide a way for organizations to continually improve the way they operate and enhance relationships with their referrer base. In a competitive marketplace, these tools will drive performance and bring further success by allowing radiology groups and departments to accomplish more in a day.
For workflow automation, we enhanced the Image Fusion module in IntelePACS 4.8.1, and have updated our Multi-Method Reporting module to ensure that radiologists are reporting with a preferential workflow, with the ability to leverage voice recognition or InteleDictation, to maximize their productivity. In addition, this latest version of IntelePACS provides further value across an extended imaging chain through the solution’s Technologist Tools in IntelePACS 4.8.1, which gives them a proper worklist, patient alerts so they know when a patient has arrived and can assign them a room, and a notes function to increase communication with radiologists.
Meanwhile, for front office staff, we have updated InteleRIS with a Mammo Reporting Module to drive their productivity. In the New Year, we will take this a step further by adding a Scheduling Portal to InteleRIS that will enable self-service for patients and referring physicians. We provided demos of the Scheduling Portal this past week in an effort to gather feedback, and were quite happy with the positive response we received.
As I sign off, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who took the time to visit the Intelerad booth at RSNA. We greatly enjoyed having the opportunity to speaking with you and look forward to further conversations with you all after we return home.
