PACSgear Introduces ModLink to Transfer Structured Reports Into PowerScribe 360
March 4, 2013– PACSgear announced ModLink, a software solution that transfers structured report measurements directly into PowerScribe 360 | Reporting from Nuance. Using digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) structured report (SR), HL7 or XML measurement data from modalities such as ultrasound, DEXA or computed tomography (CT), ModLink auto-populates the report with these values, saving valuable radiologist dictation time and reducing potential human error. ModLink supports multiple modalities, vendors and reports, as well as advanced data types such as CT dose/contrast and injector system measurements.
“To include measurement data in reports, radiologists look at one screen and dictate values into another. Since some reports contain more than 20 measurements, we had to find a better way,” said Eli Rapaich, PACSgear’s CEO. “ModLink automatically populates report templates, allowing radiologists to avoid time-consuming dictation and costly reporting errors,” Rapaich said.
“By using ModLink to integrate ultrasound measurements into PowerScribe 360 | Reporting structured report templates, I have found a significant improvement in reporting efficiency and accuracy. I look forward to integrating ModLink throughout our entire practice,” stated David Miller, M.D., radiologist at South Jersey Radiology Associates.
