December 17, 2014 – Nuance Communications Inc. announced that the American College of Radiology (ACR) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) will leverage the Nuance PowerShare Network, a cloud-based medical imaging exchange. These organizations are among the first to join Nuance’s PowerShare Innovation Program, which opens up the entire network platform to third parties to leverage PowerShare and Nuance PowerScribe reporting through a cloud model to deliver clinical content and value-added services to a much wider audience.

The PowerShare Innovation Program was unveiled at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting.

“The ACR is making it easier for radiologists to participate in national registries and federal regulatory programs, which are so important for demonstrating value in healthcare,” said Mike Tilkin, chief information officer & executive vice president, American College of Radiology. “By providing a connectivity framework that leverages tools such as PowerShare, we automate the process of collecting and submitting Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) quality measures and other registry data on behalf of radiologists. Also, by integrating our nationally recognized clinical guidance with tools such as PowerScribe, we enhance the reporting process by providing critical information to the radiologist when it is most useful—in-context and during interpretation. These two programs are a huge step forward for the practice of Imaging 3.0.”

In partnership with the ACR and Nuance, MGH will deliver an initial set of radiology clinical decision support guidelines to the broader radiology community by integrating them into the PowerScribe workflow so that radiologists can access these evidence-based guidelines at the point of interpretation to improve clinical documentation consistency and quality. As these clinical guidelines are updated and expanded, Nuance will share these guidelines digitally to providers across the industry using the Nuance PowerShare Network.

To integrate decision support with best practices in reporting, the ACR is also collaborating with the RSNA and standards organizations to align the radiologist’s decision points with standards-based reporting frameworks.
