A new Master Patient Index (MPI) module, a workflow catalyst that enables an organization to cross the chasm of healthcare information sharing, can help solve a common problem when connecting facilities that have separate patient medical record numbering systems. Intelerad’s MPI uses database management and heuristic logic to index otherwise separate patient databases.
It automatically presents potential patient matches, based on selected fields and acceptable confidence level settings, directly within Intelerad’s Reporting Worklist and reading workflow. Radiologists can get immediate access to all relevant prior images and reports from connected facilities, without having to wait for assistance or confirmation from support staff.
The InteleViewer’s image layout protocol design allows the radiologist to build powerful and customized layout protocols based on multiple parameters such as modality, body part, description and other study classifiers, combining current and prior study data. The Inteleviewer is now a native 64-bit application for both PC and Mac computers.
The company will also be showcasing its new embedded advanced 3-D visualization module for InteleViewer, which directly incorporates the latest advanced 3-D processing tools. Directly embedding the functionality allows the radiologist to build combination display layouts and on-the-fly reconstructions, allowing for direct side-by-side comparisons with current and prior study data and reformats.
Intelerad’s reading and reporting workflow now includes the ability to switch between reporting mechanisms, including embedded voice recognition, digital dictation and quick templates with accelerated signoff workflow. Radiologists will be able to seamlessly switch between the different modes of reporting and be presented with modality-appropriate templates.
