Patient Navigation Overview

Tracking patients through treatment is essential to a comprehensive imaging center’s workflow. The Navigation Module is available for both MagView and LungView, and it can be configured to your specific navigation workflow.

Features

User-defined phases navigate patient through continuum of care

  • Identify patients eligible for navigation with user-defined alerts based on imaging, pathology or other trigger.
  • Customizable stages and steps ensure continuous progress in a timely manner; based on the NCBC Navigation Matrix or your own existing navigation protocol.
  • Automated reminders and overdue follow-up flags decrease outmigration.

Integrated navigation improves access to results and reduces data entry

  • Patient Navigator replaces multiple systems by providing a single repository for imaging and pathology results, tumor data, scanned records, patient contacts and patient letters.
  • Integrated navigation in a single application reduces need for additional interfaces and costs.
  • Navigator module virtually eliminates redundant data entry by leveraging data already being captured through your MQSA-tracking and imaging center’s workflow.

Single source for all patient information

The Patient Navigator allows you to create a single system that incorporates all relevant patient information, documentation and resources necessary to efficiently track each patient’s navigation path. Patient Navigator provides immediate access to patient breast/lung history, imaging results, BI-RADS/Lung RADS findings, contacts, pathology, documents and appointment reminders.

TREATMENT & SURVIVORSHIP

MagView & LungView’s Patient Navigator help case managers and care coordinators navigate patients through the continuum of breast and lung care, from initial imaging through treatment and beyond. The Patient Navigator software, developed by navigators for navigators, provides user-definable navigation worklists, automated reminders and overdue follow-up flags to ensure no patient falls through the cracks. Patient Navigator improves access to patient demographics and information with a complete snapshot of all contacts, documents, imaging findings and pathology in a single window. Based on the NCBC Breast Patient Navigation Matrix, MagView allows each site to completely customize every stage and step to match existing protocols.

User-defined data collection improves quality of care

 

  • Customizable data entry fields (e.g., barriers to care, patient profiles, clinical indicators) can be used for accreditation programs, quality improvement initiatives, custom queries, forms and reports.
  • Allows sites to define their own forms for multi disciplinary conference, surgical consults, intake, end of treatment documentation and more.

Seamlessly integrate with MagView & LungView

To eliminate redundant data entry, Patient Navigator can be used in unison with MagView’s Mammography Information System and the LungView tracking program. Data collected as part of the MQSA Medical Outcomes Audit is automatically integrated with the navigation console without extra data entry. Incorporating the imaging workflow provides additional reporting and benchmarking benefits such as Imaging and Biopsy Timeliness of Care, Cancer Summary Statistics, Biopsy Wait Times, and Surgical Biopsy QA.

Customized to your protocols

Choose whether to start with the NCBC Breast Patient Navigation Matrix or custom-define the stages and steps for your facility. Sites can tailor Patient Navigator to match existing protocols by defining breast history categories, user-defined reminders, custom forms, configurable contact types, available risk assessment models, and much more.

Benefits

  • Track patients through each stage of the navigation process; document completed steps within each stage
  • User-defined protocols for each navigation stage
  • User-defined forms, such as Tumor Board Reports
  • Document patient contacts, barriers, appointments, reminders
  • Define reminders and rules-based alerts
  • Integrate with imaging department data and tracking to reduce redundant data entry
  • Single source for all patient information, documentation, and resources
  • Expandable to other cancer patient navigation protocols

GENETIC RISK ASSESSMENT

MagView’s Risk Assessment Module automatically calculates and displays breast cancer risk scores based on information that you are likely already collecting as part of your workflow, based on the most popular risk assessment models available. MagView's comprehensive cancer risk tools include all major risk models, as well as the ability for centers to use their own customizable risk models to asses a patient's risk. These tools are what make MagView the industry leader in risk assessment and high-risk program support.

Open-ended support for multiple risk models

Currently, MagView offers support for the following risk models: BRCAPro, Gail, NCI, HERA, and user-defined models. More importantly, MagView’s Risk Module was built with an eye to the future: as customers request new models to be included, MagView’s architecture allows for additional models to be continually added to our software.

Automatically calculate 5-year, 10-year, and lifetime risk scores

Based on family history, major risk factors, and past pathology, MagView automatically calculates the scores for each desired risk model. MagView displays the scores in a highly visible fashion for both technologists and radiologists.

Collect risk information on patients in the general population (outside of the breast center) for referral to screening, MRI, or detailed genetic risk screening.

Automate communication to high-risk patients

Risk Assessment Portal

MagView’s Risk Assessment module can automatically include risk scores in referring physician results (when using MagView’s Autoscribe structured-result module), and in any patient notification lay letter. In addition, MagView provides the ability to generate customizable letters to patients over a user-specified risk threshold.

Benefits

  • Automate risk scoring for every patient
  • Identify high risk patients, highly visible to all staff
  • Automate communication with high risk patients
  • Review Gail, BRCA, NCI, HERA and/or user-defined model
  • Display 5-year, 10-year, and lifetime risk calculations
  • Includes 100% customizable, comprehensive clinical history collection for accurate results
  • Expandable to other cancer patient navigation protocols

Requirements

  • Tyrer-Cuzick version 8.0 requires MagView 7.2 or above
  • Data entry of patient history into MagView. This can be a manual process by staff, or can be electronically completed by the patient using the MagView Patient

Advanced Pathology Collection

MagView stays on top of the latest developments from the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and other governing bodies. We take this information and incorporate it into your system to ensure you have the most current tools when collecting your pathology information. Whether manual or automatic, we have multiple solutions to ensure you are always collecting the more pertinent data for your facility.

Easy to collect pathology increases staff efficiency

  • Collects data to satisfy all requirements of MQSA Medical Outcome Audit.
  • Automatically calculates all true positive, false positive, true negative and false negative statistics based on imaging and pathology results.
  • Unlimited pathology records for each patient allows staff to enter pathology data for lesions not imaged at your facility, and not recommended for biopsy.

Advanced pathology collection scales to collect data for additional programs

  • Collects surgical pathology data to provide a complete snapshot of a patient’s history.
  • Allows navigators, registry staff, nurses and research staff to collect advanced data for each lesion, based on the College of American Pathologists (CAP) protocols.
  • Collects data for accreditation and quality initiative programs such as: National Quality Measures for Breast Centers (NQMBC), National Mammography Database (NMD), National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).

Add-ons to streamline pathology collection workflow

  • Improve pathology turn-around time with optional Pathology Interface that flags incoming results in pathology worklist and allows report to be viewed at any time.
  • Reduce misplaced pathology results with optional pathology scanning module that permanently stores pathology records – especially for outside pathologies.
