Without the tools to measure both quality and productivity, there is no way to track progress towards goals.
Philadelphia, PA; Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Montage Healthcare Solutions, a provider of search-driven radiology clinical quality analytics, has partnered with Imaging Elements, a provider of Radiology Meaningful Use solutions, to improve the ability for radiology practices to succeed in an Imaging 3.0™ environment. Imaging 3.0™ is a set of technology and data management tools, initially proposed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) that equips radiologists to deliver quality patient care in an evolving health care delivery system and under revised payment models.
“Radiology practices need a complete Imaging 3.0™ Toolkit to manage their transition from volume-based to value-based imaging,” says William Boonn, MD, President of Montage Healthcare Solutions. “Without the tools to measure both quality and productivity, there is no way to track progress towards goals.”
“Through this partnership, our Meaningful Use and Patient Engagement technologies can now become part of an expanded Imaging 3.0™ Toolkit that enables us to deliver superior value,” concludes Bob Cooke, CEO of ImagingElements.
Together, these solutions can help all radiology practices address Meaningful Use (MU), Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), and Joint Commission (JCAHO) reporting requirements. “We recognize that Meaningful Use attestation is an ongoing concern for many of the radiology organizations we speak with,” admits Boonn. “This partnership provides a solution for Montage Search and Analytics™ users to address meaningful use compliance and attestation."
“Meaningful Use is an opportunity for radiology practices to improve their quality. This partnership enables our clients to access a comprehensive set of performance and quality analytics tools to move forward in a value driven radiology economy,” says Cooke.
