#FindYourFlow: Leveraging Interoperability, Collaborative Care and Business Optimization Tools
by Paul Atkinson, Marketing Community Manager, Intelerad
While staying competitive in healthcare can be a challenge, it also brings out the best in forward-thinking providers who are willing to adopt innovative technologies to bring their service offerings to the next level.
One such organization is Diversified Radiology of Colorado (DRC), a Denver-based reading group who are using a cross-enterprise imaging workflow provided by InteleOne® XE to achieve truly remarkable goals.
DRC ensures the highest level of patient care by having all studies read by a subspecialist, with an average turnaround time of under 17 minutes.
When you take a deeper look at DRC’s environment, you notice there are three key flows that enable them to perform at such a high level: interoperability, collaborative care and business optimization.
By leveraging InteleOne XE’s ability to connect to disparate systems across the imaging ecosystem, DRC is able to consolidate image and patient data into a single, unified workflow. This enables radiologists to conduct all reads using a single worklist, viewer and speech recognition tool to provide substantial workflow gains. According to their CEO Chris McMillan, “InteleOne XE’s single reading environment and single voice recognition solution increases our doctor’s efficiency by a minimum of 20 percent.”
In terms of collaborative care, the solution enables DRC to effectively connect referring physicians with the subspecialists who they may not have access to if images were sent to another healthcare provider. Meanwhile, DRC leverages business optimization tools that are integrated with InteleOne XE, so they can measure every part of the radiologist’s workflow in order to continually improve on the service they deliver.
