Driven by the need for radiology practices to prepare for the transition from volume-based to value-based imaging
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Montage Healthcare Solutions, Inc., a provider of search-driven radiology analytics and data mining tools, continues its robust growth by adding eight new customers in Q4 2013. This diverse group represents academic and community hospitals who took the first step towards enhancing their radiology departments productivity and clinical quality.
Radiology leaders with patient-centered care goals realize their organizations benefit from rapid access to detailed and actionable insights about productivity, quality and outcomes performance. MONTAGE™ Search and Analytics provides this access by applying the intelligence, flexibility and simplicity of search and natural language processing to the rich body of clinical and operational information within the radiologist and pathologist reports. MONTAGE Search and Analytics can extract and integrate this information using capability unobtainable with commonly available Boolean search tools and eliminate the tedious process of scouring paper files. Academic organizations also appreciate how MONTAGE™ speeds identification of research populations and facilitates educational opportunities for radiologists and their trainees.
"Given the clinical activity of our large academic medical center and the breadth of the disease processes encountered on a daily basis, we have a significant amount of information stored in our RIS. We have long sought a user-friendly data mining tool that would allow our radiologists to extract specific information to support their clinical and research pursuits," says Dr. Ann Fulcher, Professor and Chair of the Department of Radiology at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical System, a new Montage Healthcare client. Adding, "MONTAGE Search and Analytics tools will enable us to derive the data and facilitate integration of radiology and pathology report information for the benefit of our clinical practice, research and, most importantly, our patients."
"MONTAGE is delivering a clinical search and analytics package that captures key performance and care indicators that enable practices to bridge the gap from volume-based efficiency measures to value-based radiology-related outcomes", says William Boonn, MD, President, Montage Healthcare Solutions. "When a practice maximizes their current performance they are in the best position to succeed in the challenging transitions our industry is facing."
