A Comprehensive Structured Reporting System for all Study Types
Vendor Neutral Solution
Digisonics integrates equally well with all imaging vendors including Philips, GE, Siemens, Toshiba, etc. Employing the Digisonics Structured Reporting Solution will provide cardiology, vascular, OB/GYN and radiology facilities with extra leverage when purchasing additional imaging equipment.
Non-OCR Links to Modalities
Digisonics links for measurement import do not rely on optical character recognition (OCR) or “screen-scraping” for non-DICOM SR carts. Instead, Digisonics Structured Reporting Solutions employ a custom data parsing tool that has been developed to capture the information directly from the ultrasound machine. Structured Reporting Software Vendors that rely on OCR are often at the mercy of the OEM modality vendors as software updates that move items or change colors often break the OCR mapping.
Integration with Voice Recognition Software
Digisonics Structured Reporting Solutions can be interfaced directly with voice recognition software (such as Nuance Powerscribe) for improved workflow efficiency. Patient biometry is autopopulated from the ultrasound machines and the physician summary is autopopulated from the voice recognition system directly into the Digisonics report templates. Once this data is received the Digisonics structured report is electronically signed and automatically disseminated via HL7, Report to PACS or Rolodex. This functionality dramatically speeds workflow and prevents human error due to manual data entry.
Structured Reports for All Study Types
The Digisonics Structured Reporting software offers easy-to-navigate picklists and summary macros, enabling users to quickly record their clinical findings in a structured report for cardiology, vascular, OB/GYN and radiology studies. These concise, structured reports offer the ability to embed patient study images and graphics such as clinical diagrams. Customizable items include report titles, logos, accreditation symbols, patient/study lists, precision of results, measurement names and more. The finalized structured reports are stored in a central database for fast comparison of a patient’s studies across all study types.
