Medicalis, a provider of information-driven clinical, workflow and quality healthcare software, is introducing its Actionable Reporting (AR) integrated authoring environment software as a new part of its industry leading enterprise radiologist worklist solution at the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) annual conference being held November 25-29, 2012. Designed to work with all commercially available reporting systems, via a single click touch screen or iPad, the radiologist has everything at their finger tips while offering the referring physician streamlined radiology reports for rapid access.
“The business of radiology is changing the definition of quality and the level of service required from radiologists increases with it,” said Oran Muduroglu, president and CEO of Medicalis. “As part of the Medicalis Professional Solution, Actionable Reporting is yet another significant addition to our growing suite of software solutions. These solutions offer essential tools for radiology groups to deliver the highest quality actionable reports to their referring physicians, enabling no loss of communication with their patients care for more timely intervention and treatment.”
The company’s AR helps categorize reports as positive, negative, follow up required, structure critical findings and key pathology along with follow-up recommendations to deliver high quality actionable reports to the radiologists referring physicians. The latter can then easily triage patients using these actionable reports, acknowledge critical results and place appropriate follow-up orders with just one click. The AR is currently a works-in-progress which is scheduled for commercialization in the first quarter of next year.
“Our AR works with any commercially available reporting system regardless of vendor,” said John Delong, vice president of marketing for Medicalis. “It is designed to offer a more consumable report to the referring doctor with key elements such as findings, recommendations and critical alerts if an urgent situation is identified. This helps to ensure a high level standard of quality for both the radiologist and primary care physician.”
Medicalis will also showcase other software products within its Professional Solutions as well as Operations and Utilization Solutions segments at RSNA. These include next generation software with a radiology workflow focus on leveraging the enterprise electronic medical record (EMR) and providing rich clinical and administrative solutions for the radiology department. The company also offers utilization management, quality improvement and education in support of dynamic reimbursement metrics and health plan changes.”
