Diagnostic errors are a major concern. That’s why peer reviews are a fundamental part of the workflow. They allow to collect and evaluate data on reading errors and act accordingly.
Traditional peer reviews have several drawbacks. By randomly selecting studies for peer review, a lot of learning opportunity are missed. There is also very little feedback to the report author and the scoring of the reports often leads to a blame culture.
Agfa HealthCare has developed a module that supports a true peer learning workflow and not only peer review. Pear learning does not focus on ‘how many’ reading errors occur, instead it lets radiologists understand how and why an error occurred so they can learn from this.
Agfa HealthCare’s peer learning is completely embedded in the reading routine workflow and designed to improve collaboration and foster a culture of teamwork and feedback
It’s learning at its best and that is the ultimate goal.
