Partnership with Rad AI will improve patient outcomes and collaboration amongst the health system, radiologists, and outpatient providers
San Francisco, CA, November 25, 2023 -- Rad AI today announced that Virtua Health, the largest health system in South Jersey, has selected Rad AI’s Continuity platform for automated tracking and management of actionable incidental findings. Virtua Health becomes part of an expanding group of visionary health systems that are adopting AI to tackle a challenging patient safety issue that is nearly impossible to improve solely through human intervention.
“We are committed to creating outstanding and frictionless experiences for our patients, and helping them to navigate the care they need when they need it. Rad AI Continuity is the most comprehensive follow-up management platform on the market, tracking more than 50 categories of incidental findings and significantly increasing patient follow-up rates. We’re very excited about this collaboration as it will allow us to have improved visibility and provide a safety net over our entire patient population to ensure our patients feel informed and empowered.”
-Lisa Iacovelli, VP of Radiology at Virtua Health
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. It identifies and categorizes follow-up recommendations from radiology reports using the latest AI models, automates communication to the outpatient provider and patient, and tracks patient adherence to follow-up recommendations to determine if the loop is closed.
“We are excited to partner with Virtua Health on this transformational initiative that will significantly enhance quality and patient care. After evaluating all follow-up management platforms, their team concluded that Rad AI Continuity is the optimal solution for addressing this crucial challenge. The consensus among leading health systems nationwide, including Virtua, underscores Rad AI Continuity as the premier solution for follow-up management."
