Qpath for Clinical UltrasoundManage your workflow process
Simple. Streamlined. Clinical ultrasound workflow
Streamline your ultrasound workflow for clinically indicated exams performed at the point of care.
It has been well documented that point of care ultrasound is a valuable tool in managing patient care. However, it’s true potential can only be realized if the process to perform the exam, document results, and drop a charge for billing is simple to complete.
Minimize data entry on the ultrasound system and reduce errors
In a busy healthcare environment it isn’t practical to manually enter patient demographics. Qpath solves that issue. Either use a barcode scanner to enter the patient identifier on the ultrasound system and Qpath fills in the remaining patient demographics pulled from other hospital information systems. Or use the Qpath worklist (Qlist) to pick an ultrasound order or patient name from the list on the ultrasound system.
Place ultrasound order – before, or after the exam is performed
In an Emergent case or when it is not known what exam will be performed, it is not possible or practical to place an order for the ultrasound exam before the exam is performed. With Qpath, an order can be placed before or after the exam is performed. Qpath reconciles the order to the exam without user interaction.
Document clinically indicated exams
Exam report templates can be customized to meet your specific needs. Report templates are designed using check boxes, radio buttons, drop down lists, and other rapid entry methods so you can quickly complete required documentation for the patient record and billing. Templates can be simple or complex and include an auto fill feature for default or negative conditions.
Transparency of exams results and images across institution
Once Qpath determines an exam is clinically indicated / billable, exam images are automatically transferred to PACS or VNA and the results/report are sent to the EMR (patient chart). This automatic transfer is triggered by the approval of a credentialed staff physician.
