Today at Intelerad, we’re excited to introduce our new Assignment Engine module. Designed by our Clinical Decision Support group, the Assignment Engine brings automation to two complex tasks – case assignment and worklist prioritization.
To optimize efficiency and radiologist utilization, Intelerad’s Assignment Engine automatically adds pending cases to radiologists’ worklists using a number of real-time variables that are set by the enterprise, including reader availability, subspecialty, workload, location, the relative amount of time and effort required to read the exam, and more. In doing so, the module raises patient care levels by distributing exams to the most qualified radiologist.
For radiologists, the module provides automated worklist prioritization to eliminate the time they need between cases to evaluate their caseload and determine which case should be read next.
Ideal for large hospitals, multi-facility imaging providers and teleradiology enterprises, the Assignment Engine’s automated functionality creates balanced caseloads across the enterprise, which drives productivity, provides insight into staffing needs and helps imaging enterprises meet service-level agreements and internal benchmarks for key metrics.
