Amicas to Add Patient Load Prioritization Feature

Amicas' emphasized its Radstream works-in-progress Objective Acuity Scoring and Prioritization feature, plus Vision Reach, both designed to optimize radiology workflow by reducing interruptions and speeding up report turnaround times.

The Objective Acuity Scoring and Prioritization feature, a WIP developed at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital, uses an algorithm that calculates the 25 most likely causes for interrupting Radiologists, and weighs each task on the worklist on a scale from 1-10 to prioritize each case.

Vision Reach is a PACS add on designed to increase report turnaround efficiency designed for referring physicians adjusting to the Deficit Reimbursement Act. Vision Reach provides pro-active email to alert referring physicians to when a Radiology report is available. The email links to a web page where the physician accesses the report and key images. An application-programming interface (API) can be built into reportedly any PACS or EMR.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
