PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Montage Healthcare Solutions, Inc. will introduce enhancements to Montage Search and Analytics™ in support of radiology leaders' increasing need to improve the business performance and clinical quality understanding concealed in the radiologist's unstructured narrative.
A new Physicians Quality Reporting System (PQRS) dashboard will help practices take full advantage of PQRS program incentives by automatically identifying reports that include reportable radiology measures. Because participation in the PQRS program during 2013 will provide the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service CMS the basis by which they determine penalties, tools that simplify participation in this program are very valuable. More information about how radiologists can participate in this program can be found here on the American College of Radiology (ACR) website.
A newly available residency dashboard will enable radiology residency program directors to easily track resident progress and ensure compliance with the minimum required number of cases set forth by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
These expanded search-driven radiology analytics tools support radiology's transition from volume-base to value-based imaging by enabling the understanding necessary to maintain productivity, while enhancing clinical quality, outcomes and patient safety. "We know the radiology community is facing numerous challenges, and must adopt tools that facilitate the transition to the Imaging 3.0™ paradigm. Clearly radiologists can address productivity demands while simultaneously adding significant clinical value to patient care. Achieving these seemingly conflicting goals does require ongoing measurement and understanding of key performance indicators," says William Boonn, MD, President, Montage Healthcare Solutions.
