1 The Impact of CDs and Image Sharing on Radiology
Kang Wang Ph.D, CEO, HealthFortis Amy Vreeland, SVP Strategic Accounts, lifeIMAGE 9/24/2013

2 Agenda Value of Clinical Decision Support Value of Image Exchange Power of the two systems working together

3 It’s also a Patient Safety issue
“… just from overuse of CT, will result in 12 preventable radiation-induced cancer deaths a day”* "A 20-year old woman who gets an abdominal-pelvic CT scan (i.e., just about any young woman coming to the ED with belly pain) has a 1 in 250 chance of getting cancer from that single scan.“** *Robert Stern, Patient-centered imaging, Am J Med 2012; 125:115 **Dr. Rebecca Smith-Bindman - professor of Radiology, Epidemiology, and OB/GYN at UCSF in

4 Current solutions and their problems
Speed bumps RBMs Referral pre-authorization Claim analysis and provider profiling Problems Human intensive Trying to change decisions that are made Little physician involvements No consistent evidence based decision making No financial incentives for physicians

5 Decision Support at the point of Decision
A better solution A better solution Decision Support at the point of Decision Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Order Entry System Integrated with EHRs

6 Proactive vs. Passive CDS
Proactive Decision Support Decision support BEFORE the decision is made Symptom/Diagnosis driven decision support Change of the current CPOE order workflow More effective: the right exam is the easiest to order Passive Decision Support Judgment AFTER the decision is made Procedure driven decision support Keep the current CPOE order flow, add a CDS step after order submission Less effective: physicians don’t like to be judged

7 CDS: What to look for EHR integration vs. stand along CDS order entry
Comprehensive rule sets with option to customize American College of Radiology, ACC ODG Ability to set institution specific rule set Reporting Module: provides actionable information KB Editing Tool: can you publish your own guidelines? Cloud hosting vs. local installation

8 Integrated with physician workflow
Tight integration with EHRs Single sign-on Patient context sharing Patient chart information passed to CDS Real time submission of the CDS result

9 Data Mining

10 Knowledge base editing

11 Cloud-based deployment model
Centrally managed content Regular updates from content providers Multi-tenant system Each customer can subscribe to its preferred content or create customized content Centrally managed system Minimal client side IT requirements Frequent system updates

These issues are particularly acute for image intensive specialties. Most hospitals still lack efficient and effective solutions for importing images into their system. For hospitals that receive referrals from outside of the system, most images are received via CD. Outside CD studies can present significant issues across three key areas: workflow to import the image, image visualization, and data normalization for both use as well as importation into the PACS system. These issues can create clinical issues– for example with trauma transfers, where every second counts. It can also create administrative burdens for specialties that receive high volumes of CDs such as cardiology and neurology. Transferring results out of the system is similarly difficult. Most hospitals still utilize CDs given to patients to bring to their specialists. The issues that health systems face in getting these CDs into their system are also experienced by the referring physicians that receive these CDs– with the added complication of needed to rely on the patients to bring the CD to the physicians. These issues are most acutely felt by imaging intensive specialties. These physicians rely on imaging for their livelihood and are forced to resort to relying on patients or use of phones/faxes/mail and couriers to receive images. lifeIMAGE was founded on the premise that there needs to be a better way to exchange images. A way that is simple, effective and efficient to support the physician-patient relationship. As we have developed and refined our vision, we’ve expanded it.
