AuntMinnieEurope.com features RealTime Medical: “Proactive QA strategy can boost performance”
RealTime Medical’s Quality Assurance, Improvement and Collaboration (QAIC™) software enables and manages multi-site, multi-member, anonymized peer-review networks. Our award-winning platform does so retrospectively and prospectively, across all RIS and PACS platforms. Combined with our next-generation workflow orchestration, coverage coordination and business intelligence solution DiaShare™, QAIC™ becomes a powerful QA engine:
Anonymization eliminates bias, and encourages participation
Adjustable sampling rates optimize effort, expense and likelihood of error
Prospective QA helps maintain expertise and competence
A formal QA process reduces the costly probability of complications, complaints, and litigation
Pre-distribution feedback increases confidence in results
Seamless integration with radiologists’ routine workflow increases adoption
The article describes at length its first successful application in a retrospective review by 21 radiologists working remotely of approximately 30,000 studies over a 60-day period across two health authorities.
Our breakthrough work in radiology QA continues to elicit strong interest in the academic, clinical and business communities. It is a hot topic indeed, with many retrospective reviews making headlines recently, e.g. mammography work in Quebec.
