July 21, 2014 — Novarad has added a new licensed feature as part of NovaRIS version 8.2, Relative Value Unit (RVU) Productivity Management Reports. This new feature provides a way for administrators to track the productivity and efficiency of radiologists. RVU Productivity Management Reports is also available with Novarad’s NovaBilling product.
RVU Productivity Management Reports tracks the RVU for each procedure service code a radiologist reads. RVU is determined for each radiologist and each study. Some studies take longer to read and have a higher RVU. With the RVU Productivity Management Reports, administrators can see how productive each radiologist is. Administrators and radiologists are the only ones that can view the individual radiologists’ RVU Productivity Management Report.
Some hospitals use these reports to determine how much to pay their radiologists. As well, the government uses these reports in determining Medicare and Medicaid payments to hospitals and other facilities.
Novarad’s RVU Productivity Management Reports are easy to read, allow the user to filter according to radiologist, view procedures the radiologist viewed and see the relative value for each procedure.
