Streamline radiology workflow with Corepoint Integration Engine

February 14, 2018

Monitor Engine Health
If you’re an administrator in a radiology center, you’re constantly on the lookout for ways to streamline your radiology workflow. You want to support your radiologists’ productivity while speeding up patient-report turnaround time and expediting reimbursement.

Corepoint Integration Engine manages workflow and facilitates communication between diagnostic imaging centers and the hospitals, clinics, and other vendors with whom they work.

Puts you in the driver’s seat

To take control of their healthcare interfacing, radiology groups are implementing standalone software for data integration and exchange. But why?

For one, integration means easier, more direct electronic communication with referring physicians. Orders and reports can each be delivered faster and more directly to the individuals who need them, when they need them. Additionally, integration gives control of important processes like scheduling to the radiology group, and any updates to a patient’s record or changes to a particular order can be shared immediately. The result is a significant savings in time and money for everyone involved.

Communication is key

In a recent interview, Joe Moore, CIO and RCI at Radiology Consultants of Iowa, talked about the decision to upgrade to an external health data integration solution and the benefits that followed.

“Previously, our physicians had 15 different workflows because everywhere they went, there was a different workflow,” said Moore.

Going from one workflow to another took time and limited how much those physicians and their assistants could accomplish. Integration, by comparison, put everything into a common dictation system, which made it easier to receive and forward information.

“We have taken turnaround times from days to minutes,” said Moore, “and we couldn’t do that without our interface engine.”

Since implementing Corepoint Integration Engine, Moore uncovered additional benefits. The engine provides powerful data that can be used in a variety of ways, some of which Moore and his team are still exploring. “Because we’re using this common dictation system,” said Moore, “and all those messages are flowing through the engine, we are able to capture important information. A lot of that we didn’t anticipate.”

A proactive solution

It’s the challenge all radiology groups face: sharing, providing, and/or exchanging electronic patient data while maintaining business relationships with the referring medical community.
