The Q/ris 3000 Structured Report module provides users the capability to set up specific structured reporting tables and have these tables be automatically populated with data direct from modality.
The program has the capability to receive DICOM SR data from all modalities; including; US, Mammography, DEXA, CT and MRI. These data can be reviewed for completeness and accuracy, modified on line by the technologists, and then forwarded to be automatically included in the radiologist's report. Specialty data, such as, contrast and radiation dosage can also be automatically downloaded for inclusion into the patient record and final report.
One of the unique features of this program is the capability for technologist to edit the data sent or manually enter all the data when the modality does not pass the DICOM SR data. Thus, 100% of data can be entered before the technologist completes the exam and sends the image to PACS.
Once approved, these data are sent directly to populate a preset macro in the radiologist's worklist in the Reporting PLUS+ dictation program. When the radiologist launches the study and opens the dictation the structured data is prepopulated and edited for completeness and accuracy. The radiologist only has to dictate the body, findings and recommendations. This saves time and reduces errors since there is no need to key in, or dictate, all the measurements, nor send to transcription to have them enter the data after the fact.
This program is available in both the imaging facility mode as well as being integrated in the Q/ris Reading Services teleradiology application.
This innovative approach has a threefold positive impact;
1. Reduces the time to complete a report and improves overall turnaround time
2. Reduces the amount of labor required to input data into the report. Independent studies suggest that it saves, as a minimum, over 1 week of labor per radiologist per year.
3. Virtually eliminates data errors, to improve the quality of the report and patient safety
The bottom line is that with this solution everyone wins; the technologist, the radiologist, the facility and most importantly patient safety.
