November 2, 2015 — Infinitt North America announced a marketing agreement with Elsevier that will enable Infinitt PACS (picture archiving and communication system) users to seamlessly access STATdx diagnostic decision support for radiology. STATdx, an Elsevier Clinical Solutions product, is used by radiologists to increase speed, accuracy and diagnostic confidence.
STATdx topics cover all radiology specialties and include key information such as differential lists, patient cases, image galleries and normal imaging anatomy.
The STATdx integration with Infinitt PACS enables radiologists to search across 200,000 high-quality images for reference and decision collaboration with physicians. There are more than 4,300 diagnoses as well as 1,300 expert Differential Diagnosis modules that provide lists of diagnoses relevant to a particular finding.
Developed under the company name Amirsys, STATdx consists of more than 300 anatomy modules, which include normal anatomy color graphics and multimodality images and planes, all extensively labeled.
According to eHealth University of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, clinical decision support (CDS) has the potential to improve care and is a centerpiece of the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. “When CDS is applied effectively, it increases quality of care, enhances health outcomes, helps to avoid errors and adverse events, improves efficiency, reduces costs, and boosts provider and patient satisfaction,” according to the CMS website.
