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.
- 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.
