Your technologists are the backbone (and more) of your breast imaging facility. From face-to-face interaction to exam completion, they spend the most time with your patients than anyone else. Do they have the most up-to-date tools and technology to help them complete their mission?
Your techs can be mobile and be with the patient for much longer with the MagView TechPad(tm). This tool untethers your techs from a workstation or work area and enables them to take MagView with them wherever the patient is. A positive impact on workflow efficiency is inevitable. Techs can see instant feedback from the radiologists, so they know if a second exam needs to be performed or a view repeated.
Techs can now create a complete breast diagram in just a few seconds and with only a few clicks. Since the images are persistent, you will have them to view year after year. If you make a mistake? Vector-based drawing tools allow for editing of previous images. You aren’t confined to a single canvas, you have layers to work with instead. In other words, technology saves your technologists a ton of time, while still providing assistance to radiologists.
One common question your team may have for any exam: “Where is my patient now?” With the Patient Status Board, you will always have an answer, as it displays physical location along with status for each patient throughout their visit. This can be displayed on a large monitor or TV screen in your technologist work area, reading room, coordinator’s office, or anywhere that makes sense in your facility.
The FDA now requires breast imaging centers to review their images for quality. As part of this review, each technologist must review the comments left by their interpreting physicians. That’s where the MagView EQUIP Module comes into play. We can automatically populate a review worklist for your readers and technologists alike. Once the films are reviewed, each tech will have a unique worklist to review the comments left by the reader. A compliance report is available for your auditor as well, ensuring your facility avoids citations.
Ensuring your technologists keep up to date with their credentials is an important task. With MagView, we take the guesswork out of the equation and track their credits automatically with the Credential Management Tool. This eliminates the need for spreadsheets or even paper tracking by documenting the number of exams performed automatically. You can control the number of credits required, the type and provider of each certification, and the specific users that fall under each category.
