Technology that Powers Clinical Collaboration

RaysTracker is a radiology information system (RIS) with special functions not seen in other systems. It manages an unlimited number of modalities and facilities all in one worklist, and its unique "case-o-meter" improves operational efficiency by strategically auto-distributing cases based on relevant factors including:

  • Radiologist Reading Attributes – Case distribution based upon radiologist license, facility credential and reading efficiency
  • Prior Radiologist – Assign patient studies to the radiologist who interpreted prior studies
  • Modality Assignment – Distribute studies by modality
  • Sub-Specialty Assignment – Assign cases based upon radiologist sub-specialty
  • Overall Case Load – Load balancing intelligence to minimize interpretation turnaround time

RaysTracker supports facilities of all sizes and provides the crucial information that radiologists and the referring clinicians need in a central location.

The multifaceted RaysTracker includes a number of unique tools that improve efficiency, communication and patient care including:

  • Doc2Doc - Allows clinicians and radiologists to interact in a way similar to instant messaging, except the interaction is assigned to a particular case
  • Discrepancy - A referring clinician or over-reading on-site radiologist may score a case as “agree,” “minor discrepancy” or “major discrepancy” and add a note of explanation. Tabulation of these discrepancies with percentages and numbers are available to authorized personnel at the click of a button
  • Comment - Dictates a technical issue on a given case to be resolved by the Rays client support analyst (CSA) and later put back on the work list
  • Confirm - Click a button and the CSA confirms receipt of the report with an actual person at the facility and documents this in the reportv
  • Addendum - Add an addendum at any time
  • Faxwork - Receive faxes and auto-attaches them to the reports
  • Report Search - Type in part of a medical word and see all reports containing this word
