PACSHealth DoseMonitor

DoseMonitor automated radiation dose management

Assume control of the medical imaging radiation doses delivered to your patients!

Whether you are a community hospital or academic medical center, you perform thousands of procedures every year that utilize ionizing radiation.  Manually documenting individual procedure dose values can be time-consuming, inaccurate and inefficient.

DoseMonitor automatically captures radiation dose metrics from your X-ray, CT and Mammography equipment to put you control of your radiation doses!

DoseMonitor® provides:

  • Radiation dose reporting over time by patient, procedure, technologist, physician and modality
  • Customizable alerts to prevent excessive patient radiation dose before it occurs
  • Modality and PACS vendor-neutral
    • CT, DICOM Angio/Fluoro, DR, Nuclear Medicine and Mammography
  • Integration with dictation systems, HIS, RIS and EMR
  • Automated Dose Index Registry (DIR) data upload certfied by the ACR
  • Browser-based GUI for enterprise report distribution

Financial benefits of implementing DoseMonitor:

  • If you are manually documenting radiation dose values, DoseMonitor can free up resources to resume revenue generating activities
  • Insurance providers may require radiation dose monitoring for reimbursement as part of a quality program
  • Actions taken from implementing an enterprise-wide dose optimization program can be promoted to referring clinicians and the local community to drive additional procedure volumes
  • Preventing just one incident of radiation overexposure can avoid significant costs associated with lawsuits and negative publicity

New Joint Commission Requirements Effective July 2015:

On December 20, 2013, The Joint Commission announced changes to its standards for accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals, and ambulatory health care organizations that provide diagnostic imaging services, including ambulatory organizations that have achieved Advanced Diagnostic Imaging certification. The changes will be effective July 1, 2015 with additional requirements for Fluoroscopy.

Areas addressed in the new and revised standards include:

  • Documentation of CT radiation dose in the patient’s clinical record

  • Meeting the needs of the pediatric population through imaging protocols and considering patient size or body habitus when establishing imaging protocols

  • Collection of data on incidents where pre-identified radiation dose limits have been exceeded

DoseMonitor can help you comply in each of these areas (and more)!
