Veterans Healthcare uses Analytics to Improve Radiology Efficiency and Physician Engagement

Mountain View, CA – February 16, 2017 – The National Teleradiology Program within the Veterans Healthcare System has renewed its commitment to HealthLevel for an extended period, to collaborate on high-efficiency radiology analytics and workflow tools.

The National Teleradiology Program (NTP) is a self-sustaining program for efficiently providing high-quality diagnostic radiology interpretation services across the United States for all veterans and patients in VA Medical Centers.

The NTP first adopted HealthLevel’s Foundations radiology analytics in 2011 and since then has expanded the use to deliver value across clinical, operational and financial disciplines. Data-driven workflow applications are now used by over 3000 users in more than 85 VA Medical Centers as well as 100 plus physicians and leadership in the 4 principal reading centers covering the United States.

“Foundations™ from HealthLevel has been in continuous, uninterrupted operations for 5+ years as the VA-NTP data analytics platform.  Leadership, administrative and clinical staff at every level in all NTP service locations depend on Foundations™ daily to deliver quality metrics and inform decisions on workload planning and resource matching. We are grateful for the true partnership throughout NTP’s growth and proud that we have improved care for our veterans.” stated Raymond Scott, Chairman of HealthLevel.

Real-time Health Data Analytics Invigorates Cardiology Care

Mountain View, CA – March 30, 2016 – The UW Medicine Regional Heart Center has implemented a new approach for continuous quality improvement in the cardiac catheterization laboratory using Foundations™ from Health Level. Critical information that traditionally is difficult to obtain and use, is now available instantly, enabling leadership, doctors and staff to make timely evidence-based decisions.

UW Medicine Regional Heart Center is among the best cardiology care centers in the world, with ground breaking procedures and treatments. The vast amount of data was being unused, due to lack of interfacing and analytical capability. Recognizing the challenge, UW Medicine leadership took a self-service approach to empower the department staff and management.

By interfacing data that is already being created in the course of patient-care to Foundations Cardiology, physicians, staff and leadership were able to immediately gain insight into their business and clinical performance. Immediate and actionable personalized performance metrics are available to the entire heart center team. Powerful clinical surveillance tools that saves time and improves patient outcomes are available to the clinical leadership.

“Across the industry, lack of actionable data and visibility is impacting patient care and business performance. It is rewarding to see how UW Medicine has taken Foundations Cardiology and use it every day to run their business of patient care.” said Parag Paranjpe, Founder and CEO of HealthLevel, “We are fortunate they have selected Foundations™ and partnering with HealthLevel to improve patient care.”
