Intelerad Releases IntelePACS With QA Modules

August 4, 2009 — Intelerad Medical Systems released IntelePACS, a suite of fully integrated modules developed as a direct response to the requirements of Intelerad’s clients to improve best practice standards in patient care.

Implementing the latest quality improvement measures is one of the steps radiologists are taking to receive accreditation from bodies such as The Joint Commission, formerly (JCAHO), a well known healthcare accreditation group in the USA. Such accreditation is becoming increasingly important with the numerous challenges in today’s healthcare environment. Meeting specified quality standards demonstrates a commitment to quality patient care, helps improve risk management and reduction efforts, and provides a competitive edge in the marketplace.

The new IntelePACS modules address quality improvement requirements in three ways:
Critical Results Management – Facilitates timely communication of critical findings between radiologists and referring physicians. Critical results are delivered faster and all events are tracked, providing a communication audit trail. The critical results notification process is improved, which results in better patient care and increased efficiencies.
Peer Review – Supports the requirement for the ongoing practice-based evaluation of radiologists’ performance. Geared toward measuring diagnostic accuracy, Peer Review allows a radiologist to comment on a peer’s interpretation and state their level of accordance. By embedding the peer review process in the diagnostic workflow, more reviews can be documented in a shorter amount of time.

Image Quality Review (IQR) – Allows a radiologist to review and comment on the quality of images acquired by a technologist. Seamlessly integrated with the IntelePACS workflow, IQR provides a streamlined method of providing feedback to technologists. The resulting improvement in image quality reduces the need to re-image the patient.

Because the modules are integrated with the IntelePACS solution, radiology practices also benefit from significant cost savings as they no longer need to invest in costly stand-alone applications to meet their quality requirements.

Intelerad will be present August 9-13 at AHRA 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada (booth 560) to discuss IntelePACS integrated Quality suite and the benefits of these features for radiology practices.
