CaseReader, from DPR, integrates knowledge and systems to reduce report cycle time by 45% and oncology report errors by 50%.
San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
DPR, founded to help radiologists and physicians deal with the problem of radiologic data overload and lack of patient information at the point of care, today announced significant advancements in CaseReader™, an intelligent workflow solution designed in collaboration with radiologists for radiologists to reduce both report cycle time and overall errors.
“We are working with radiologists to create a balance between optimizing productivity and delivering high-quality patient care,” said Steven K. Douglas, President and CEO of DPR. “In a field that faces the threat of commoditization putting a face to the patient and vice-versa can add value and create differentiation. Through CaseReader™ we not only reduce errors and report cycle time but we help radiologists provide a better patient experience and enhanced level of care.”
Integrating Knowledge and Systems
CaseReader™ addresses the driving factors behind reporting errors including, technical factors, inaccurate differential diagnosis and incorrect clinical information, among others. Specifically:
- CaseReader’s™ intelligent workflow technology reduces study review times while delivering a more thorough report that virtually eliminates call-back clarifications;
- Replaces today’s textual report with an interactive patient-centric structured report that improves communications between clinicians;
- Integrates selected images and measurements of previous studies into the radiologists’ review process;
- Provides the radiologist with the patient history and reason for the study at the onset of the interpretation process.
CaseReader™ has been an essential tool for radiologists, oncologists and referring physicians waging the war against cancer. In practice , CaseReader can result in a 50% reduction in errors related to oncology reporting.
“DPR introduced CaseReader™ to save lives,” said Douglas. “Our solution truly shines when it comes to helping the medical community battle this terrible disease.”
CaseReader™ will be demonstrated during RSNA 2012 at McCormick Place, Chicago, November 25-30. CaseReader™ can be found in Exhibit Hall D, Booth 2005. DPR, developer of CaseReader™, will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how radiologists can immediately improve productivity and quality while reducing costs associated with dictation, transcription and standard structured reporting solutions.
