Driving Imaging Enterprises’ Performance and Quality
By Paul Atkinson, Marketing Community Manager, Intelerad
With RSNA taking place in the first week of December, autumn is always a busy time of year at Intelerad. This year was no exception as the event was preceded by a number of new product announcements, the launch of our new website, and, of course, tying up all the loose ends prior to our arrival in Chicago.
From start to finish, the show was a success. On top of providing us the opportunity to meet with clients and prospects, and demonstrate our products’ capabilities, the show provides a unique opportunity to take in presentations from industry leaders and meet with people from across the industry to get their perspectives.
Of course, one of the reoccurring themes at RSNA was the market transition to a value-based model and how it will affect radiologists, who will be expected to shift their focus from reading volume to the overall patient experience they provide. As a solution provider, this means providing solutions that increase radiologists’ productivity levels, as well as the quality of their reads.
An example of this is the Performance and Quality Suite that we introduced in October. The suite groups together a number of new solutions, including:
- Our integrated peer review module, which allows radiologists to easily fulfill their quotas by enabling them to conduct reviews directly in InteleViewer, as opposed to logging into a different program.
- An Image Quality Review module that allows radiologists to provide feedback to technologists regarding the quality of images produced.
- A Resident Over-Reads module that provides a specially-designed workflow for radiologists in training.
- A Critical Results Management module that allows radiologists to track their most important cases.
The suite also includes Intelerad Analytics™, which provides real-time metrics sourced directly from your PACS, so that enterprises can accurately assess their operations and institute a culture of continual improvement.
While the transition to value-based imaging will come with a number of challenges, we look forward to continually assessing our clients’ needs and developing solutions that will help their enterprises overcome hurdles and achieve their goals.
