A needle in the haystack: Searching for the right information, the right way

September 06, 2017

From the September 2017 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

There are two key factors that make up an ideal scenario:
The first is to have the EMR information integrated into a diagnostic reading workflow so it’s readily accessible to the radiologist.

The second is to give radiologists the ability to control and adjust both the amount and type of information they receive. Since there are so many nuances to clinical diagnostic reading, they need flexibility and a way to intelligently configure a GUI that’s tailored to their workflow. The EMR isn’t imaging-centric, so tailoring it to a radiologist’s workflow is far more difficult and costly from an IT perspective.

The goal of every radiologist is to provide the best patient care – in every case, whether it’s complicated or simple. And more clinical information will help every time. Ultimately, it comes back to the same issue I mentioned earlier – more information means better quality interpretations, faster discharge and fewer unnecessary tests. When you can avoid an invasive procedure, or an unnecessary study, or save time, the value is obvious, especially for the patient.
