Visability

Enterprise-Wide-Visability.jpg

The DoseMonitor PACS-based automated system provides healthcare facilities of all sizes enterprise-wide visibility from day one into patient radiation dose exposure throughout the hospital or health system.

Insight when and where you need it 

DoseMonitor offers providers the greatest access to and flexibility in how you see, use and export dose data regardless of a hospitals size or configuration or number of modalities, units or even PACS systems. 

It is the only automated patient radiation dose monitoring system that enables providers to track a patient’s dose history through multiple PACS, departments, and even facilities in the same system, wherever the study is conducted (Radiology, Cardiology, Cath Lab, Mammography).

With enterprise-level data acquisition, DoseMonitor provides visibility into your organization, to  aggregate, interpret, compare and report ionizing radiation data on a patient, study, physician, technologist or device basis in a single, customized report.  Identify outlier devices and procedures as well as technicians who may need training, to better manage consistency, adhere to protocols, improve quality and comply with regulatory requirements.

DoseMonitor’s single server, browser-based design means zero-desktop footprint, and along with a user-friendly interface, makes for easy access from any PC with a web browser, including mobile devices.  This design (which does not require a separate connection to each scanner) also results in a system that can adapt with you and with evolving standards, protocols and technologies.  In a market filled with uncertainty and change, DoseMonitor is the solution that can grow with you.

DoseMonitor is modality and PACS vendor neutral and offers multi modality support (CT, XA, DR, MG).

Dose History

Real-time patient dose history for better-informed decisions

DoseMonitor’s real-time access to patient dose history across units, departments and facilities supports better-informed decisions.    Physicians and technicians have access to pre-visit, real-time and historical data, including historical patient dose profile, for every patient when an exam is ordered.

Data can be acquired via DICOM-SR, OCR, MPPS or calculated values based on the calibrated history of an individual unit.  DoseMonitor will use the most accurate and appropriate data acquisition method available for each study.  Data is updated in real time and customized alerts are sent via email or HL-7.

Alerts

Customizable alerts & notifications increases patient safety

DoseMonitor’s customizable, real-time alerts can be set for any system parameter (e.g., any value for any procedure, patient type, and dose) and can be directed to any group.  Pre-visit, if the patient’s history exceeds your facility’s threshold, DoseMonitor will send an alert.  Email notification reports patient jacket summary, study level statistics, and modality level statistics before additional exposure occurs. 

Reporting

Intelligent-Reporting.jpg

User defined intelligent reporting delivers insight, improves efficiency, reduces error

DoseMonitor offers flexible reporting and enables easy access to dose data by device, facility, technologist, physician, procedure, and by patient.

View single-page study details (including technique and protocol information), pull up a study level work list (with links to patients and studies) with a simple Google-style search, or compare enterprise-wide data for QA, utilization, variance analysis and modality reporting.

DoseMonitor’s automated data collection and reporting to RIS, EMR, dictation/transcription and (in an anonomized format) to the ACR’s Dose Index Registry (NRDR-DIR), means no change in workflow, reduced physician and technician time and reduced potential for error.

PACSHealth is a certified partner with the ACR and DoseMonitor’s server platform includes the DIR functionality at no additional cost so you can report and benchmark your facility against other providers.

DoseMonitor integrates with automated voice recognition dictation/transcription systems via an API or HL-7.

Implementation

Rapid data access, streamlined implementation, lowest total investment

DoseMonitor’s single server, browser-based design facilitates rapid implementation with minimal IT resources required regardless of hospital size or configuration by using Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and MS-SQL 2008 standard.

DoseMonitor provides the greatest visibility and connectivity, in a PACS-based system that adapts to changing requirements.  With a zero desktop footprint, dose data, alerts and reports are accessible from any PC with a browser, including mobile devices.

And, our upgrade inclusive maintenance lowers the total cost of ownership.

  • Unlimited modality connections, user and workstation licenses
  • Accelerated Implementation timeline
  • All upgrades and updates are included in the maintenance fee
  • Server options include virtual hardware (VMware) as well as customer provided Dell, HP or IBM solutions.
