Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) November 22, 2010
Poiesis Informatics, a healthcare IT workflow solutions developer making its first appearance at this month’s RSNA 2010, will debut its recently launched Workflow Orchestration Suite and host demonstrations of next generation workflow solutions with the University of Chicago Medical Center’s Department of Radiology, led by Dr. Paul Chang. Addressing the current real-world needs of radiologists, Poiesis aims to improve delivery of patient care by offering a vendor-neutral solution to produce a fully optimized, integrated workflow.
Poiesis will exhibit at Booth #7021 in the North Building, Hall B, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill., November 28 – December 2.
University of Chicago Medical Center’s Department of Radiology Demonstrates Next Generation Workflow
Poiesis will demonstrate next generation workflow solutions with its partners from the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCMC), Department Of Radiology, led by Dr. Paul Chang. The team will demonstrate a UCMC-developed biopsy tool - a comprehensive solution used for improving each step of biopsy workflow, from approving biopsy requests to evaluating biopsy results. The solution suite leverages the orchestration of information from disparate systems using Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and is designed to enhance the efficiency and quality of biopsies performed in radiology.
The demonstration will illustrate the workflow facilitated process that starts at the point a request is received from a referring physician via phone, CPOE, fax or in-person, and includes subsequent steps such as filling up an iSite integrated, web-based Biopsy Request Approval form (including automatic display of patient lab data); the selection process used by the radiologist to determine who should perform a biopsy; the scheduling process utilizing the Scheduling Status page in the solution suite; and follow-up after the biopsy, which includes logging of procedure details into the iSite integrated Biopsy Log application, automatic retrieval of pathology results, and radiologist’s follow-up on his/her cases using the Biopsy Follow-Up page from within iSite.
Dr. Chang and his team will also discuss how this application suite has proven to be a continuous quality monitoring tool for the University Of Chicago Department of Radiology.
The Workflow Orchestration Suite
Built on an intelligent technology platform, the Workflow Orchestration Suite leverages existing or best-of-breed systems and connects these systems together for an optimized, context-specific user experience. The suite is comprised of four modules:
- Catalyst™ - An optimized enterprise worklist
- Fluency™- A speech-driven reporting and clinical documentation tool featuring Speech Understanding™ technology from M*Modal
- Scout™- A comprehensive business analytics tool
- Discover™- A clinical search and discovery tool
The Workflow Orchestration Suite allows for the scaling of radiology groups across multi-site, multi-vendor environments with the authoring, productivity and communication tools needed to provide subspecialty, high-quality care. Coupled with Poiesis’ Professional Services offering, the suite provides rich interoperability between disparate systems that contain critical information to support complex workflow models.
