Over the past few weeks, together with clients all over the globe, we have been very busy supporting hospitals in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak. From supporting the set-up of remote reporting capabilities to configuring special radiology work lists, dedicated to COVID-19 cases. By sharing the customer cases we encounter and the configurations we’re setting up(*), we hope to be of help.
Faster Reporting with COVID-19 Drop-down Menus and Text Macros
With suspected COVID-19 cases increasing rapidly, efficiency of radiology reading needs to be maximized.
In collaboration with an Enterprise Imaging customer in The Netherlands, a series of COVID-19 specific drop-down menus with text macros have been created, covering f.e. ground-glass opacity, vascular thickening and scoring of affected areas in the lungs.
Apart from a faster reporting, it will also result in more consistent reports, which in a longer term will be beneficial for analytics and statistics.
The screenshot shows the report template with text macros (click on the image to access the web page with more screenshots). To set these up, please reach out to your local Agfa HealthCare contact person.
