The American Hospital Association Endorses Radiation Dose Management and Analytics Solution from Imalogix
The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed the Radiation Dose Management and Analytics Solution from Imalogix. Following a proprietary due diligence process, Health Forum, the strategic business enterprise of the American Hospital Association (AHA), awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence.
To protect patient safety, and to comply with The Joint Commission’s diagnostic imaging standards regarding radiation dose, hospitals are striving to ensure radiation doses are kept as low as reasonably achievable.
The Imalogix™ Radiation Dose Management and Analytics Solution makes it easy for radiology professionals to document and track dose, compare performance with national benchmarks, and systematically reduce dose exposure through advanced analytics that guide adjustments to protocols, scanners or other issue root-causes. The field’s perception of achieving compliance is that the process can last a year or more. Imalogix™, a cloud-based system, typically installs in less than an hour and is immediately available for hospitals to review their performance. This enables organizations to comply with The Joint Commission requirements in days without disrupting organizational workflows.
Suitable for hospitals and health care enterprises of any size, the Imalogix™ solution provides automatic protocol mapping that can save hospitals hundreds of resource hours in manual efforts. It also offers unlimited staff training, and a subscription-based model that does not impact capital budgets. Through the guidance of board certified medical physicists, Imalogix Premium Edition™ helps organizations rapidly establish, implement and monitor compliance practices.
“The Imalogix solution allows health care organizations to turn patient-level dose and enterprise performance data into actionable information that results in reduced dose exposures and improved operational performance,” said Kathleen Wessel, vice president, business management for Health Forum. “As the first true cloud-based radiation dose management and analytics solution, it stands apart by providing meaningful information within minutes after installation, compared to weeks or months by other solutions. Its 100 percent client retention rate further demonstrates its excellence.”
“We are honored to have the endorsement of the American Hospital Association. It is exciting to be acknowledged as an innovative company that is redefining imaging solutions,” said John Heil, CEO for Imalogix. “At Imalogix, we give our customers unprecedented insight and knowledge into their imaging practice, which allows them to improve the quality of care and safety of their patients.”
