Philips announced the introduction of IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics 1.2, the latest innovative solution for driving operational, financial and clinical insights within radiology departments. Making its debut at the 2017 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine Annual Meeting (SIIM), the new business intelligence tool, now offered with Philips IntelliSpace PACS, provides a comprehensive picture of departmental performance to drive and maintain continuous improvements for enhanced efficiency and quality of care.
Intended to help departmental leaders clarify, measure and meet key performance metrics, Philips’ latest solution helps users answer questions within radiology data by compiling and analyzing data for the user. IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics 1.2 aggregates and filters multiple data types for an integrated, holistic view of workflows by combining three major sources of data: DICOM, HL7 and PACS audit logs. Philips data transformation engine then processes and presents normalized metrics in an understandable and easily accessible dashboard. The solution also provides access to historical data without requiring the additional effort of exporting and normalizing data.
The robust data in IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics can be coupled with a front-end assessment through Philips PerformanceBridge Practice offering to identify opportunities and gaps within a health system. Following this assessment, Philips acts as a partner in on-going continuous improvement, providing detailed benchmarking and insights to help achieve productivity gains.
“As we focus on delivering the best possible care for our patients, it is important that we are maximizing our existing resources and ensuring our team is working efficiently and effectively without being overburdened by the amount of data being captured,” said Samantha Sizemore, Senior Director of Operations from Holston Medical Group. “IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics will help us gain a comprehensive view of how our radiology department is performing in one easy to review dashboard.”
Department administrators who need to understand various aspects of their radiology department will benefit from clear metrics when it comes to trends, variability and patient care, as well as support in driving impactful change within their departments. The solution offers easy to understand dashboards that give a snapshot of the department function at-a-glance. Easy access to data from disparate sources delivers operational insights and improvements through the following capabilities:
- Evaluate Radiologist Productivity – IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics 1.2 monitors data with respect to how work is moving through the radiology department to allow departmental leadership to identify individuals who may be overburdened or have additional bandwidth to enhance efficiency.
- Understand Referral Pattern Trends – The solution enables customers to review referral patterns to gain insight into the types of studies being referred to the department and by whom, and how referral patterns have changed over time to enable consistent delivery of service.
- Analyze Resources with Utilization Analytics – The tool helps radiology leadership examine how department resources are being managed to identify areas of downtime and modalities that are being over- or under-used to empower informed decisions when load balancing imaging devices.
“Radiology departments process a great deal of data and need a tool that can provide measurement clarity, especially when it comes to modality and staff utilization,” said Yair Briman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Healthcare IT for Philips. “We’ve made significant investments in solutions that help our customers implement performance improvement strategies, including the launch of PerformanceBridge solutions late last year. IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics 1.2 complements these efforts by providing our IntelliSpace PACS customers insights from day one, which gives healthcare leaders clear decision support from the start.”
IntelliSpace Radiology Analytics 1.2 – part of the Philips IntelliSpace integrated portfolio of healthcare informatics solutions – leverages Philips HealthSuite, a cloud-enabled connected health ecosystem of devices, apps and digital tools that work seamlessly together to enable personalized integrated health and continuous care.
