WAYNE, N.J., Nov. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Approximately half of recommended patient follow-up contained in radiology reports, including incidental findings, are not acted upon and often result in missed or delayed diagnosis.1,2 Automating this process has been shown to increase patient follow-up rates, which may improve patient outcomes as well as increase adherence to additional follow-up recommendations by up to 60%.3 To address this need, Konica Minolta Healthcare introduces Exa Connect as part of the Exa® Platform.
Using artificial intelligence to efficiently identify patients at risk for critical missed follow-up care, Exa Connect closes this gap in patient care. Based on information contained in the radiology report, Exa Connect creates an order in Exa RIS and utilizes digital messaging to communicate the recommended follow-up with the care team and the patient. Good communication between patients and providers may potentially enhance patient safety and outcomes, improve the coordination of care and decrease the cost of care.4 Exa Connect is fully automated, so there is no need for staff to implement or manage this capability – it is simple and seamless to launch Exa Connect into existing clinical workflows.
Konica Minolta is also introducing Exa Clear Authorization, an innovative prior-authorization solution integrated directly into the Exa RIS® Workflow designed to help radiology practices avoid lost revenue. This advanced technology streamlines the prior-authorization process by proactively engaging with the patient's insurer across multiple payer portals directly from the Exa worklist. Exa Clear automates data entry by allowing staff to focus on exceptions to drive productivity and expedite exceptional patient care. By efficiently capturing any required prior authorizations, Exa RIS helps practices avoid rescheduled or missed appointments due to insurance issues, improves the patient experience and maximizes insurance payments. Exa Connect and Exa Clear Authorization are powered by ImagineSoftware, a leading provider of revenue optimization solutions.
