PHILADELPHIA and SEATTLE, Nov. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Montage Healthcare Solutions, a provider of search-driven radiology clinical quality analytics, and Mammography Reporting Systems (MRS), a provider of breast imaging procedure reporting, patient tracking and risk assessment tools, will be demonstrating the initial results of their previously announced partnership at the upcoming RSNA 2013 Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.
MRS7 users can now utilize Montage Search and AnalyticsTM to mine the mammography specific clinical imaging, biopsy, and therapy information stored in the MRS system. The ability to correlate this structured and unstructured information with the patients imaging record will greatly enhance mammography quality improvement efforts, and the shift towards value-based imaging. A radiologist using Montage to uncover clinical information that facilitates imaging appropriateness, ensures patient safety, or aids diagnosis will benefit from access to the unstructured clinical narrative, as will managers looking to understand the relationship between imaging protocols, clinical findings, therapy, and outcomes.
"Breast imaging already receives a significant clinical quality scrutiny, from the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). Extending Montage Search and Analytics mining and analysis, to the unique information managed by MRS7, provides exciting opportunities for caregivers to further enhance breast imaging quality," says William Boonn, MD, President of Montage Healthcare Solutions. "This will become increasingly important as radiology shifts from volume-based to quality-based imaging."
MRS currently provides numerous breast imaging specific reporting, quality assurance and risk management tools that help facilities meet stringent MSQA and ACR accreditation standards. "We recognized that Montage Healthcare shares the vision of not only MRS but also our customers for continuous clinical quality improvement, whether mandated or not," says Mark P. Morris, CEO at Mammography Reporting Systems. "We feel strongly that our partnership will enable our customers to more comprehensively manage their clinical quality improvement efforts, through not only the existing MRS database reporting functions but also the sophisticated analysis tools included in Montage Search and Analytics."
Please arrange to visit Montage Healthcare in booth 1905, and schedule a demonstration with Mammography Reporting Systems in booth 2402, at the upcoming RSNA 2013 Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.
