RADAR is an automated, closed-loop Critical Test Results Management (CTRM) solution to notify clinicians of urgent or significant unexpected results.
RADAR and Critical Results Reporting
Again in 2016, “improve staff communication” made the Joint Commission list of National Patient Safety Goals. eRAD’s solution to that requirement is RADAR, a state-of-the-art Critical Test Results Management (CTRM) tool.
RADAR was developed by a radiologist for radiologists. RADAR bridges communication gaps by tracking alerts from creation through confirmation. Different types of alerts can be created from within an existing workflow, and follow-up ensures the patient’s critical result is acknowledged. Best of all, RADAR delivers secure text (SMS), IM, phone or email messages while seamlessly and easily integrating into an existing workflow.
RADAR, like eRAD, is one of RadNet’s technology solutions to help hospitals, outpatient radiology practices, teleradiology groups and other radiology providers solve tomorrow’s challenges. To learn more about RADAR, and its radiology critical results list solutions, please visit radarmed.com.
“With as many as 20 remote sites sending us studies on a 24/7 basis, our workflow is complex and requires a certain degree of flexibility and the need to customize based on the institution. Not only did we find this capability in eRAD, but it also offered us lots of extra features. In addition to basic remote access, we got integrated report creation, dictation, transcription, speech recognition and distribution tools—which allows us to create and distribute medical reports with embedded key images to our referring physicians and institutions online in a secure manner.”
“By ‘closing the loop’ on critical results reporting, RADAR has helped ARA improve patient care. We’ve virtually eliminated the possibility of a critical result or unexpected finding falling through the cracks before it reaches the ordering physician.”
