Assigning an urgency of Trauma Protocol escalates the case to the top of our radiologists’ worklists and assigns a turnaround target 20 minutes (same as stroke). vRad’s average Trauma Study turnaround time is under 12 minutes.
Trauma Protocol cases are automatically “unbundled” by body region and distributed to multiple radiologists to be read concurrently. Our patented system automatically generates a call to your facility for critical findings. Call priority is placed on providing results for Head/Cervical Spine studies.
Trauma Case Identified.
The case urgency is easily marked as “Trauma” in vRad’s online Order Management System or through automatic association within the HL7 order. No need to contact vRad to “escalate” the order.
Trauma Studies Unbundled.
vRad’s patent-pending technology automatically “unbundles” trauma cases, assigning each body region to the appropriate radiologist to be read concurrently:
Trauma Case Automatically Escalated and Prioritized.
vRad’s patented workflows automatically process trauma cases with our fastest turnaround target of under 20 minutes.
Radiology Reports for Each Body Region Sent Immediately.
The radiology reports for each body region are sent to the facility as soon as they are completed, allowing treatment to begin as quickly as possible.
Critical Finding Calls Auto-Dialed.
If a critical finding is dictated, and you have registered your contact numbers with vRad, a call to the referring physician is automatically triggered – reducing critical finding relay times to under 2 minutes. Call priority is placed on Head/Cervical Spine studies.
