Neurostar, M*Modal Partner to Increase Radiology Reporting Accuracy

September 10, 2008 - Neurostar Solutions Inc. yesterday announced the incorporation of M*Modal’s advanced speech understanding technology into its existing Virtual Radiology Network (VRN), in an attempt to further increase VRN’s reporting accuracy and turnaround time.

Neurostar’s VRN technology is designed to power virtual radiology networks and reportedly is the leading platform for outsourced clinical image management and workflow solutions. Its innovative architecture and universal workflow enable imaging centers, hospitals and physicians’ offices to share image data with a virtual community of radiologists and referring physicians, helping them expand services, productivity and referrals.
By incorporating AnyModal CDS (Conversational Documentation Services), M*Modal’s speech understanding solution, the goal is to deliver more accurate and complete reports in less time, reducing the chance of errors.

The Neurostar VRN is a full-featured Software As A Service (SAAS) offering that is completely web-based and hosted by Neurostar. The service combines image display, communication, workflow, management, archiving and disaster protection. It can utilize existing Internet connections to transmit images worldwide and requires minimal hardware and no client IT support.
The VRN pulls images from existing imaging modalities and PACS at multiple locations through an integrated network of on- and off-site servers and makes them available to any authorized user through integrated Worklists, streamlining image access and management. For sites that do not have a PACS, the VRN can provide an affordable and easy-to-implement alternative to a traditional PACS.
By combining AnyModal CDS within VRN, radiologists will now be able to dictate without any change in workflow. The patented speech understanding services transform the spoken dictation into a draft report, automatically structured and encoded according to the healthcare provider's documentation rules. Documents are generated in a semantically interoperable HL7 CDA format to allow for streamlined report sharing between practitioners and facilities.

Benefits of the combined services include complete outsourcing, which means the VRN product is housed in a high-end datacenter and requires no hardware purchases, IT maintenance or upgrade costs. Additionally, the product offerings are said to be extremely scalable with no limit on the number of users or the volume of reports generated.
