Montage Healthcare Solutions' powerful analytics capabilities connect data from ACR Select, PowerScribe 360 and other infrastructure components to create reports radiologists can use to give visibility into quality, productivity and outcome metrics associated with patient-centered care objectives.
"Montage is delivering a clinical search and analytics package that captures key performance and care indicators that bridge the gap from volume-based efficiency measures to value-based radiology-related outcomes. The structured and unstructured data contained in the Nuance and ACR Select platforms are core components to measuring and delivering on the value of radiology. Targeted analytics are the only way to begin the conversation about quality and value. That's what Imaging 3.0™ is all about," says Dr. William Boonn, president of Montage.
"Each of these components alone is just a part of the story. The Imaging 3.0™ framework is the glue that brings them all together so that the sum is greater than its parts. Imaging 3.0™ defines the value proposition for radiology in the performance-based health care environment and having this kind of industry collaboration can make this a reality," states Mike Tilkin of the ACR.
