Overview

As radiology departments transform themselves in this era of healthcare reform, they’re seeking IT solutions and process efficiencies that support a culture of accountability. Digital “dashboards” can enable this accountability by providing real-time operational performance measurements spanning the workflow continuum of radiology. 

These real-time analytics include:

  • Data aggregation from information systems that help you keep up with:
    • patient status prior to scan within and outside radiology unit
    • pending workflow steps across RIS, modality, PACS, and dictation or VR systems
  • Real-time metrics and alerts on emerging delays in the workflow - from physician’s order to patient scan and subsequent interpretation steps
  • Productivity dashboard to help identify operational bottlenecks from aggregated data with a broad set of operational metrics.

Benefits
