Brit Systems and SaferMD Partner to Reduce Malpractice Insurance Costs

August 16, 2011 — Brit Systems Inc. and SaferMD announced a marketing partnership that will enable radiologists using Brit Systems’ UrgentWorks Critical Results Test Management software to apply for malpractice insurance discounts from their insurance carrier. SaferMD is an independent and neutral third-party auditor that monitors the UrgentWorks communication system and reports the providers’ use back to the insurance carrier. This auditing process can also provide liability discounts to doctors and hospitals when they demonstrate effective use of the product.

UrgentWorks is a Web-based, automated phoning solution for managing critical results. Findings can be parsed from reports or entered into a Web page either directly or via integration with workstations. The software then starts phoning clinicians and/or patient locations to deliver the findings. The system continues phoning a list of recipients until the findings have been acknowledged, which may also be done via the Web. The urgent finding history can then be returned via HL-7 to other information systems, most commonly as addendums to reports. Full listings on each urgent finding as well as statistical analysis of delivery and acknowledgement times are available with a few clicks.
