Partnership with Rad AI embraces cutting-edge AI to improve quality and speed of radiology reports
LITTLE ROCK, AR, USA, September 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Radiology Associates, P.A. (RAPA), a nationally recognized leader in introducing innovative new technologies, announced it is forming a long-term partnership with Rad AI. RAPA will use Rad AI’s advanced technology for generating customized radiology report impressions and consensus guideline recommendations. RAPA has consistently been at the forefront of technological innovation, and services 25 hospitals throughout South, Central, and Northwest Arkansas, as well as more than 100 clinic practices that include 4 outpatient imaging facilities.
“Our practice has been on the forefront of innovation in radiology, building on our heritage of leading the way with transformative technologies that ultimately prove to become the gold standard for radiology practices. We believe our partnership with Rad AI will enable us to maintain this type of technological leadership, and Rad AI Omni will be a powerfully assistive tool for our radiologists.”
-Dr. Benjamin J. Bartnicke, Chairman of the Board at Radiology Associates, P.A
Rad AI automatically generates a customized impression from the findings and clinical indication dictated by the radiologist, using the most advanced neural networks. It learns each radiologist’s language preferences from all of their prior reports, to create an impression that the radiologist can simply review and finalize. In addition, Rad AI improves report accuracy and consistency by making sure to include significant incidental findings, answering the main clinical question, and providing consensus guideline recommendations for follow-up. The impression appears in the practice's voice recognition software as soon as the radiologist finishes dictating the findings, without any clicks, hotkeys or new windows.
“After reviewing a number of AI solutions, we felt that Rad AI’s approach on reporting and automated impression creation really helps us achieve benefits across all study types and subspecialties – not just a single study type or single subspecialty like most AI vendors. We also appreciated Rad AI’s transparency with their product roadmap, and their immediate responsiveness to feedback. The ability to see into the future while constantly adapting is critical for technology tools. We feel that Rad AI understands that level of foresight and agility.”
-Jeff Wieler, CIO at RAPA
“We are excited about our long-term partnership with RAPA to implement Rad AI Omni in their practice,” said Dr. Jeff Chang, ER radiologist and co-founder of Rad AI. “While being a radiology AI leader requires a carefully crafted and cutting-edge product, it also requires innovative radiology practices to embrace these solutions; RAPA is a quintessential example of this type of practice.”
