Ikonopedia Showcases Closed-Loop Tracking System Designed to Keep Breast Imaging Patients Safe at RSNA

CHICAGO, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ikonopedia is showcasing its new Closed-Loop Resolution Manager, designed to keep breast imaging patients from falling through the cracks, here at the 102nd Annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting, November 27-December 2, 2016.   The Ikonopedia Closed-Loop Resolution Manager monitors patients to full resolution of all clinical concerns -- saving valuable time for the radiologist and staff.  Ikonopedia will demonstrate the new system at the Konica Minolta booth (South Hall #1919), who is an integration partner.

The Closed-Loop Resolution Manager is designed to know when a patient returns for a follow-up encounter and will close the loop automatically at that time or send an alert if the patient is overdue.  Specific reports can be generated to reconcile high-risk patients that have not returned for follow-up. 

The Ikonopedia structured reporting system reliably captures pertinent data to meticulously track patients through each stage of the exam process.  The MQSA-compliant toolset is targeted and automated to monitor patients in all categories of care.  Structured data is captured from the patient questionnaire, risk-assessment, tech report, clinical report, follow-up recommendations and more.  Data is monitored to produce automatic warnings and alerts, personalized patient letters along with a detailed report to relay these findings to referring physicians. 

"Ikonopedia has a robust breast reporting system at a very reasonable price point and had the ability to work fast and smart to get us operational quickly.  With the Closed-Loop Resolution Manager, we can ensure that all women get the appropriate follow-up.  That's important to me as a clinician and it's critical to women's peace of mind," said Cheryl Futerman, MD, radiologist, who owns Welch Road Imaging, a free-standing outpatient imaging center in Menlo Park, California.

Ikonopedia provides reporting tools for screening and diagnostic modalities including mammography, ultrasound, and MRI.  MQSA audit data is automatically captured in the background and reports are BI-RADS® language compliant based on the latest BIRADS® Atlas (5th edition). Data is pulled forward from previous exams and our risk-assessment tools including Tyrer Cuzick to automatically alert the radiologist and populate reports for high-risk patients.

Based on its recent analysis of the breast imaging reporting solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognized Ikonopedia with the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Enabling Technology Leadership Award in the Breast Reporting System Market. Frost & Sullivan recognized Ikonopedia for its innovative approach to breast imaging reporting, which has not only helped mammography centers optimize patient and referring physician reporting, but also to implement individualized patient risk assessment tools.
