Insurance-driven worklist guides teleradiology assignments
Health Imaging News, June 24, 2008
In radiology, automated worklist tools help ensure that the right study gets to the right radiologist in the least amount of time. However, most worklists lack the capability to filter exam interpretation assignments on the basis of insurance reimbursement.
Now a team of physicians from Staten Island University Hospital in New York has addressed the deficiency by developing a worklist tool that assigns studies based on a patient's insurance and a radiologist's credentialing status.
