Transforming Interventional Cardiology with Structured Reporting
May 19, 2021 at 1:30 pm ET / 12:30 pm CT
The adoption of structured reporting within cardiology imaging departments is on the rise. Providers recognize the added value of standardized reports, which lies in the ability to overcome the drawbacks of individual templates. The benefits include reducing inconsistency and errors, eliminating double documentation, improving resource management, and saving time in report creation.
A single-database cardiology solution coupled with structured reports can improve communication, data aggregation and analytics, reimbursement, and efficiencies within the imaging department. The transition to structured reporting is not without challenges, and often requires a significant investment in time and resources.
This webinar will provide insights into the adoption of structured reporting and its impact on a TAVR program, all through the lens of a single-database cardiology solution. The webinar will highlight best practices and give real-world examples of how one provider successfully transitioned to structured reporting to achieve:
- Improved care coordination within the Interventional Cardiology Department - Increased billing and reimbursement accuracy - Simplified data analysis and reporting to drive actionable insights
Attendees will understand the process of adopting structured reports, including the governance, compliance, and the change management strategy. Providers will learn how optimized workflows can improve quality, while answering questions such as:
- How can structured reporting optimize staffing and reduce FTE headcount? - In what ways can structured reporting benefit TAVR programs? - Can a single database simplify the adoption of structured reporting? - What are the benefits of structured reporting over individual templates? - What are the biggest roadblocks to adopt structured reporting?
