BRIT's Critical Results Reporting Tracks Down Doctors

June 9, 2009 - BRIT System's Roentgen Works Critical Result Reporting (RWCRR) is a browser based solution that supports the flagging of urgent findings and critical test results by reporting clinicians and the immediate communication and on-going tracking of results to the ordering clinicians, and it was one of Brit's highlighted products at SIIM 2009.

The critical findings and history of the communications can be viewed and updated by all involved users on the browser interface. RWCRR also sends messages by email, fax, and proactively calls or texts the ordering clinician. The auto call feature converts the reporting clinician's text to an audio message that can be acknowledged on the fly by the recipient. All updates to the critical result are instantaneously available across the enterprise. A reporting clinician can easily use RWCRR to effectively communicate their findings in accordance to ACR guidelines and JCAHO initiatives.

RWCRR can be readily implemented within any workflow environment. RWCRR builds a patient worklist via either an HL7 interface to a department's order entry system or via DICOM by regenerating order information from a study's DICOM header meta data. Reporting clinicians log in through any Internet browser and enter the critical result, which will automatically trigger the Actions needed message over the browser-based interface and over the phone (Figure 1). The recipients of a message are determined from the ordering physician and patient location in the order. The recipients each have a log-on to the system where they can manage their own contact information and establish the rules for how to contact them based on the severity of the test or test results. All messages and actions by all clinicians are recorded in the critical results history log.
