Reporting Automation to Reduce Report Time and Errors
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 23, 2015 Imorgon Medical, a developer of wholly integrated software solutions that empower diagnostic ultrasound to deliver the highest quality of patient care, today announced that Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) plans to install the Imorgon Ultrasound Enhancement System™.
“We were searching for a technology solution that would improve ultrasound report communications by reducing radiologist report generation time and enhance patient safety by reducing the possibility of transcription errors,” said Ajay Viswambharan, M.D., board certified radiologist and chairman, AMI IT Committee. “With the Imorgon System, the potential benefits of streamlining our workflow and accuracy were clear to us immediately. Paper forms written by sonographers will be eliminated because the pertinent patient data will auto-populate into our dictation templates. Reporting time should decrease and accuracy will improve by eliminating the step of handwritten paperwork-to-voice transcription of data.
“Imorgon’s installed base at other large radiology groups and the 24/7 support provided by the company were major factors in our decision to select the Imorgon System,” continued Dr. Viswambharan.
The Imorgon System is an advanced solution that seamlessly integrates with enterprise Picture Archive Communication System (PACS) workstations, and the system’s harmonization engine provides vendor-neutral compatibility with all major ultrasound and dictation systems for streamlined workflow efficiency, greater diagnostic precision and accurate reporting.
Sonographers are able to perform exams more easily by utilizing Imorgon’s Sonographer QC tools. Specifically, ultrasound study exceptions, or patient and study information, can be easily corrected and the ability to add or edit annotations, make measurements, delete images and split or merge studies is quickly performed by the sonographer at the system.
The Imorgon System’s integrated electronic reporting decreases errors associated with handwritten paper forms and manual report dictation systems. The auto-populated report templates with patient exam observations and findings eliminate redundant dictation, and the reports are more complete, accurate, and easy to interpret.
