Updated System Tracks Unexpected Findings, Correlates Radiology-Pathology

November 8, 2010 – A new updated system gives radiology clinics instant access to even more data residing in the system. Illuminate 3.0, by Softek, also provides the analytics needed to support clinical and business decision making.

Applications driven by the system’s medical search engine allow users to automatically follow up on unexpected findings, correlate exams with pathology findings and track physician ordering trends.

“Illuminate gives radiologists and administrators a full picture of their patients and practice – from individual patient history and follow-up to current trends in demographics, ordering, diseases and quality issues,” said Softek Solutions CEO Matt McLenon. “This information leads to informed decision making that will improve patient care and business practices in a measurable way.”

Specifically, the ability to track unexpected findings holds the potential for organizations to ensure proper patient follow-up care and avoid costly malpractice suits. Also, radiologists gain easy access to information they need as they begin implementing meaningful use measures.

Illuminate is also vendor-neutral and includes several additional applications:

• ActKnowledge retrieves specific types of information for documentation and action. Unexpected Findings lets radiologists red flag exams and document follow-up notifications to the ordering physician. Rad/Path Correlation allows users to compare a patient’s radiology reports with the pathology findings. The correlations can then be used to document accuracy ratings, enable radiologists to sharpen their skills and provide decision support for making diagnoses.

• OnPatrol proactively gathers specific business, physician or patient information and delivers it in an actionable format.

• Quick Connect easily brings different data sources into the system. Quick Connect HL7 allows it to connect to any data source in an organization and begin receiving the HL7 feed data with little involvement from the IT staff. Quick Connect XDS allows Illuminate to interact with any XDS-enabled document registry and repository. It provides access to an organization’s entire archive of historical data and can continuously monitor the repository for new and updated information.

• Insight provides the core functionality of search, alerts, bookmarks and messaging. In addition to other functions, the application automatically displays all the relevant prior exams for a patient every time a radiologist begins reading a new exam.
