Including mammography risk information in diagnosis-driven analytics expands potential for clinical quality improvements

February 12, 2013 — Montage Healthcare Solutions and Mammography Reporting Systems (MRS) have announced a partnership that will provide Montage's analytics tool to MRS customers, as well as enable MRS to resell the Montage Search and Analytics solution.

MRS users can now utilize the Montage search-driven capability to mine the structured and unstructured clinical information stored in the MRS system. Mammography quality improvement efforts will benefit by the ability to correlate the rich mammography specific clinical data with related clinical findings. A radiologist using Montage to uncover clinical information that aids diagnosis will benefit from access to historical report information, as will clinical quality managers looking to understand the relationship between imaging protocols, clinical findings, therapy and outcomes.

"Breast imaging already receives a significant clinical quality scrutiny, because of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MSQA). Including Montage data mining and analysis, to existing MRS capabilities, provides caregivers exciting opportunities to further enhance breast imaging quality across the imaging modality spectrum," says William Boonn, M.D., president of Montage Healthcare Solutions. MRS currently provides numerous breast imaging specific reporting, quality assurance and risk management tools that help facilities meet stringent MSQA and ACR accreditation standards. "We recognized that Montage Healthcare shares the vision of not only MRS but also our customers for continuous clinical quality improvement, whether mandated or not," says Mark P. Morris, CEO at Mammography Reporting Systems. "We feel strongly that our partnership will enable our customers to more comprehensively manage their clinical quality improvement efforts, through not only the existing MRS database reporting functions but also the sophisticated analysis tools Montage has developed."
