Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting

July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical documentation solutions. The partnership will facilitate the automated capture and incorporation of DICOM Structured Report (SR) data into the M*Modal Fluency for Imaging reporting solution. Laurel Bridge Software's Compass Dictation Integration option is now available to M*Modal Fluency for Imaging clients.

Compass is a full-featured data orchestration tool that enables multiple DICOM SR-capable modalities to automatically provide measurement data to the M*Modal Fluency for Imaging reporting template. This eliminates the time-consuming and error-prone manual entry of measurement data by the radiologist. Supported DICOM SR report types include: OB-GYN, testicular, vascular, thyroid, and BMD/DEXA and more. This data automation enables consistent data presentation across modality vendors.

Benefits include:

  • Improves the efficiency of radiologist reporting, positively impacting the clinical process;
  • Eliminates manual data entry, helping prevent treatment errors;
  • Saves time by automating the inclusion of modality report data in a standardized format; and
  • Increases the value of the clinical report by the inclusion and normalization of quantitative measurement data, e.g., unit conversions such as cm to mm or gestational age.

Chief among the myriad practical updates to minimize risks for patients and imaging personnel alike is a tiered approach for delaying both outpatient and inpatient cross-sectional interventional procedures

For procedural delays that will not adversely affect patient outcome, Fananapazir and colleagues proposed the following tiered approach for both outpatient and inpatient scenarios: urgent procedures, procedures that should be performed within 2 weeks, procedures that should be performed within 2 months, and procedures that can safely be delayed 2 or 6 months.
