Montage Healthcare Sparks a New Direction in Radiology Quality
Nov 21, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Montage Healthcare Solutions announced the introduction of Montage Signal, a new software capability that flags report inconsistencies during radiology report dictation and identifies errors in real-time that can degrade clinical quality and reduce reimbursement.
"Extending Montage search and analytics technology to real-time report analysis is the next step in clinical quality improvement by preventing errors before they become part of the clinical record," said William Boonn, MD, President of Montage Healthcare Solutions. "We look forward to seeing how radiologists at RSNA will respond to having these powerful clinical quality improvement tools integrated into their reading workflow."
Montage search provides access to the unstructured clinical information in radiology reports, enabling radiologists to answer complex clinical questions without disrupting reading workflow.
"Carestream advocates an integrated reading environment that places advanced tools at radiologists' fingertips," added Diana L. Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream. "We are very interested to hear customer feedback on the value of extending this philosophy to tools developed by Montage that can help improve report quality."
Montage is a software solution for healthcare data mining and performance measurement in Radiology. Montage technology enables practice leaders, clinicians, researchers, and educators to search the radiology information system (RIS) and electronic medical record (EMR) for key business and clinical data.
