RedRick Technologies Explains Benefits of Optimized Radiology Reading Rooms

Improved productivity, referring physician communications and customer service support the transition to value-based imaging

Redrick, radiology ergonomics

May 7, 2014 — RedRick Technologies announced it will display its new reading environment consulting service at the 2014 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM).

Healthcare delivery is evolving and every radiology department has unique needs and constraints. RedRick’s consulting services ensure that space design, environmental control, lighting, acoustics and workstations all work together to support the needs of each radiology department. The company also aims to raise awareness about the beneficial impact of a well-designed reading environment on radiology department customer service, clinical quality and productivity.

While much has been written about the impact of reading room ergonomics on radiologist health and productivity, there has been little discussion about the benefits of optimizing the overall reading room environment and location. Recently, work published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology has identified benefits of embedding subspecialty reading rooms in the relevant clinical area. The urgent need for radiology to shift from volume-based to value-based imaging is also underscored by the American College of Radiology (ACR) Imaging 3.0 initiative. The radiology reading room could be considered another tool to support this shift.

"Increasingly, we are asked to help clients optimize existing reading workflow beyond radiologist reading efficiency," says Greg Patrick, president of RedRick Technologies. "While ergonomic, well-designed furniture creates a critical foundation for maximum productivity, a well-designed and optimally located reading room environment must be the overall goal. Our consulting services ensure that space design, environmental control, lighting, acoustics and workstations all work together to support the needs of the department."
