June 30, 2016 — Based on its recent analysis of the breast imaging reporting solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognized Ikonopedia with the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Enabling Technology Leadership Award in the Breast Reporting System Market. Ikonopedia is a structured breast reporting and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) management system designed to dramatically improve reporting efficiency and optimize facility operations.

Frost & Sullivan recognized Ikonopedia for its innovative approach to breast imaging reporting, which has not only helped mammography centers optimize patient and referring physician reporting, but also to implement individualized patient risk assessment tools. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has leveraged innovative technology to drive product quality, the foundation of delivering customer value. 

"Ikonopedia was founded on the premise of developing technology to enable optimized workflow for radiologists through the use of breast imaging report generation software tools that index breast findings based on what they look like rather than what they are called," said Darshana De, research analyst Frost & Sullivan. "Today, levering modern technology to execute a remote, Web-based installation and training process, end users have responded favorably. This innovative approach has helped mammography centers implement individualized patient risk assessment factors and optimize reporting tools. This not only provides patients with key breast health information, but also offers clinicians an effective and streamlined workflow solution."

All findings in Ikonopedia are saved as discrete data, which allows it to prevent errors, maintain Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS)-compliant language and automate many time-consuming processes. The software makes it possible to eliminate laterality errors, automatically choose exam-appropriate patient letters and pull forward findings from past exams, along with many other time-saving features. Built on modern technology, Ikonopedia employs a closed-loop follow-up system to make sure that no patient can ever get lost in the shuffle of a busy clinic.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
