NVRA, the first in Connecticut to use Rad AI Omni to automate impressions, selects Continuity for its class-leading 90%+ patient follow-up resolution rates and positive impact on patient care
Waterbury, CT (March 31, 2023) -- Naugatuck Valley Radiology (NVRA) has expanded their partnership with Rad AI by choosing Continuity for its incidental findings tracking and management solution.
“Having greatly benefited from using Rad AI Omni, we are thrilled to add Continuity to our current partnership with the team at Rad AI. The management of incidental findings in radiology reports is a key focus for our group as it’s incredibly beneficial for the patients we serve. After evaluating every vendor in this space, we found that Continuity provides the most automated and most comprehensive solution in follow-up management.”
-Dr. Geoff Manton, NVRA President
Rad AI Continuity leverages the most advanced AI algorithms to seamlessly identify, track, and manage incidental findings in radiology reports, with the highest degree of automation. In combination with Omni, it is able to increase the total number of clinically appropriate follow-ups, delivering 90%+ follow-up compliance -- far more than any other product on the market.
“Clinical literature has shown consistently that anywhere from 40% to 80% of follow-up recommendations are not followed up. These are necessary follow-ups for patients with potential cancer and other actionable findings, and it’s an important and urgent problem that both radiology practices and health systems are working to solve. NVRA continues to demonstrate its leadership and commitment to excellent patient care by choosing Continuity. The combination of Rad AI Omni and Continuity, which NVRA will now use, is uniquely differentiated in the market. Omni helps ensure that radiology report conclusions are accurate and complete, including follow-up recommendations based on nationally accepted consensus guidelines. In synergy with Continuity’s automated follow-up care coordination platform, this results in many more patients receiving clinically appropriate follow-up imaging, and being diagnosed and treated promptly.”
-Dr. Jeff Chang, co-founder and Chief Product Officer at Rad AI
