BRIT System To Showcase Browser-Based Technologies

BRIT System’s new radiology workflow solutions and systems represent a new era of radiology IT development for the company by utilizing leading edge Web technologies such as cloud computing, Linux cluster, and AJAX, which is used by Google. BRIT SpeechWorks, UrgentWorks and the next generation Roentgen Works PACS all utilize browser-based technologies, which means these applications require no installation of a client or download, not even Flash. BRIT’s next generation applications also provide continuity of care records (CCR) and communicate to personal health records, such as Google.

BRIT SpeechWorks, an integrated Voice Recognition and Structured Reporting solution that understand natural language speaking to use words in the proper context, then translates words into data. BRIT SpeechWorks creates reports with built-in intelligence for real-time Structured Reporting and builds a database of information about the report that can be used to assist in coding, developing statistics or to mine information.

By using the latest Web technologies, BRIT SpeechWorks provides real-time workflow across a virtual environment with minimal user intervention. The worklist is derived from the DICOM storage of studies, an optional HL-7 interface or data entry into the workflow server. The application is flexible and allows users to report findings by dynamically selecting one or more combinations of natural language reporting, voice dictation via recording a file, typing or by signing the default, two-click normal report.

When used with the BRIT Vision multi-modality diagnostic workstation, the solution marries image viewing with reporting for an integrated solution from image acquisition through report distribution, including critical results reporting. With one click, key images or measurements marked on BRIT Vision are automatically inserted into the SpeechWorks report; key images in the report launch the study in BRIT Vision.

UrgentWorks supports the flagging of urgent findings, critical test results and ER discordance by reporting clinicians, and the immediate communication and on-going tracking of results to the ordering physician. Reporting clinicians can use UrgentWorks to effectively communicate their findings in accordance to ACR guidelines and JCAHO initiatives.

By using a browser-based/AJAX application, all updates to critical results and urgent findings are immediately available across the enterprise. Critical findings and history of the communications can be viewed and updated by all involved users on the browser interface. Communications can be via a cloud-computing tool, our UrgentCall, which tracks the doctor down at phone numbers that he can dynamically edit. The call can be acknowledged on the phone and the doctor can ask to be connected to the patient location or radiologist.

The ER Discordance Tool allows the radiologist to agree, disagree or strongly disagree with calls made in the ER. Delivery of results can be via UrgentCall, by email, fax, or texting the ordering clinician. Messages and actions by all clinicians, including notes on conversations, are recorded for audit trails in the critical results history log. All events are tracked from initial findings until the clinician acknowledges the final diagnosis, assuring no patient gets left behind. Management tools provide statistics on the time to close the loop on the communication. With optional HL-7 interfacing, Urgent Finding history can be included as an addendum to the report.
