Nuance And Montage Collaborate To Provide New Search And Text Mining Capabilities For Radiology Reports
Integration provides rapid, on-demand data mining for Nuance radiology customers
Montage Healthcare Solutions, a privately held company for enterprise search and performance analytics in radiology, announces a collaboration with Nuance Communications, Inc., that gives radiologists and practice managers the ability to search their radiology report databases in a matter of seconds.
"Radiologists will be able to search their Nuance reporting database, get a birds-eye view of all prior radiology reports, and even correlate findings with actual pathology results through a few simple voice commands or key strokes," said William Boonn, M.D., President, Montage Healthcare Solutions. "Research, clinical decision support, performance analysis and quality reporting becomes easier and much less labor intensive," added Curt Langlotz, M.D., Ph.D., current user and principal at Montage.
"The ability for our customers to easily search, analyze and correlate clinical findings with this extremely innovative tool is another example of how Nuance is transforming healthcare clinical documentation through advanced technologies and partnerships," said Michael Mardini, Nuance Communications' Vice President of Medical Imaging. "Nuance is committed to the delivery of systems that convert clinician dictated narrative into actionable information that can be used to bring a more evidence-based approach to both the business and practice of radiology. Our work with Montage supports and helps to advance that commitment," concludes Mardini.
The Montage technology and Nuance's radiology reporting solutions will both be demonstrated during the Radiology Society of North America's (RSNA's) upcoming 96th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting to be held November 28 – December 3, 2010 in Chicago, Illinois, Nuance Booth, South Building Hall A, 4044.
