Altamont Software announces application for automating the handling of medical imaging measurement data saving radiologists’ time

November 10, 2023 — Altamont Software, a provider of enterprise medical imaging solutions, announces the ability to automatically capture and insert DICOM Structured Report (SR) data into a radiologist report. Passport SR streamlines the process of capturing DICOM Structured Report (DICOM SR) measurement data and ensures that it is inserted into the correct fields in any reporting application.

Automating this process improves radiologist productivity by eliminating the need to manually enter measurement data. It also reduces the risk of incorrect data being entered into the report and saves technologists’ time by eliminating manual data capture processes. Passport SR can also be paired with electronic forms functionality to allow users to add additional information to the report.

Passport SR makes it possible to realize the following benefits:

Improved data quality

  • Provides the technologist with a way to correct inaccurate data and enter additional information, including user-defined data fields, via electronic forms.

Saves time

  • Saves technologist and radiologist time by automatically incorporating numerical data into a standardized format and by eliminating dictation of measurements.

Superior report quality

  • Makes it easy to include quantitative measurement data where there was none before.
  • Ensures that the correct and accurate measurements are used in clinical decision making.

RadNet, the largest imaging center chain in the US, shared their success as an early adopter of Passport SR in a new case study available here. After implementing Passport SR in ultrasound, they were able to improve radiologists’ ultrasound reporting efficiency by 25% and reduce ultrasound-related clinical data errors by 27%.

“Any time data management and workflows can be automated and human intervention eliminated, data accuracy improves significantly,” notes Ranjan Jayanathan, Chief Information Officer at RadNet. “Altamont helps us automate clinical workflows that improve the productivity of our clinical staff and the quality of our services.”

Altamont Software will demonstrate Passport SR along with their full suite of document, e-forms, photo and video capture applications at the upcoming annual meeting of the Radiologic Society of North America (RSNA). Altamont Software will be in booth # 7810 – North Hall. Click here to schedule an appointment with RSNA to learn how Passport SR can improve radiologist and technologist productivity.

Passport SR, like all Altamont Software products, was built on their modern Connectivity Platform, which includes an enterprise approach to managing medical imaging. It can save time and money and enables healthcare organizations to realize the following benefits:

  • Simplified management of your medical imaging input/output accessories.
  • Less time managing a multi-product enterprise deployment.
  • Easy access to operational insights about the use of all systems on the network.
  • Reduced need for training on new products as they are adopted.
