RADAR is a communication technology platform that provides physicians with the essential tools to communicate, confirm, and document all critical and abnormal test results. This fail-safe, closed-loop communication protocol meets best-practice policies for better communication documented by The Joint Commission and other regulatory bodies, such as the American College of Radiology, ACR.
Ensuring critical test results get delivered, received, and confirmed.
Seth Koeppel, Senior Vice President of Sales, eRAD, Inc., says, “Ineffective communication of critical test results is a big problem and is frequently cited as a root cause of sentinel events in a healthcare environment. By adding RADAR to eRAD’s technology solutions, we now can give physicians and radiologists (and diagnosticians from all specialties) the ability to quickly communicate and accurately document not just the delivery, but the actual receipt of critical and abnormal test results.”
Koeppel explains, “RADAR provides one-click critical message creation that can be integrated into any Dictation, RIS, or PACS software. It promptly delivers personal recorded phone messages, text messages, and emails to the referring physicians. These messages can include key images, critical notes, and results using Secure Web Services. And, each communication is closed-loop-verifying receipt of the communication and documenting each interaction in a complete communications audit trail.”
Helping patients remember appointments, show up on time, and be prepared.
Florence Present, Director of Sales at RADAR, says, “RADAR can deliver automated telephone calls, text messages, and emails that remind patients of their upcoming appointments. Patients can acknowledge their appointment or connect to the scheduling desk to change their appointment, or ask questions.”
Present continues, “Procedure instructions can be delivered to patients ‘just-in-time,’ with reminders such as, ‘Please begin your fast now for your 7AM appointment’ or, ‘Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete your paperwork.’ This can have dramatic positive effects of the efficiency and throughput of a busy health center.”
RADAR technology will be integrated into eRAD’s technology suite, as well as offered as a stand-alone product that can be integrated into other third-party systems. RADAR is proven to increase efficiencies and improve patient care. Designed by physicians, for physicians, it is easy to use and fits within their workflow. With no capital expenditure and with low start-up fees, you can enjoy an immediate ROI.
RADAR was founded in 2005 as a Critical Test Results Management (CTRM) solution. Today, RADAR offers the technology to implement a fail-safe, closed-loop communication platform, and its customizable database can be integrated into any HL7-compliant system within hospitals, clinics, imaging centers, and physician practices. Departments can utilize the RADAR database for practice management, quality assurance, risk management, and peer review. For more information, visit radarmed.com.
