Description: DoseWise Portal is a vendor agnostic and multi-modality software that allows users to collect patient and staff radiation exposure from X-ray machines as well as hospital Information Technology (IT) systems for the purpose of quality control and continuous improvement. Specifically it:
  • Tracks multi-vendor and multi-modality X-ray radiation dose across customer`s enterprise.
  • Facilitates compliance with Joint Commission standards for improving quality within the radiology department with regard to dose.
  • Provides advanced analytics and custom dashboard capabilities.
  • Interfaces with Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and dictations systems to share patient dose information into patient records.
Note: The system uses a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) database to handle Personally Identifiable information (PII)/Protected Health Information (PHI). Data is captured directly from the X-ray modalities, which collect the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data that feeds the SQL database using DICOM nodes. The software stores this information and does advanced dosimetry calculations, analytics, and graphical display (dashboard, etc.) so it will store and manipulate data and outbound patient dose to the dictation system for the patient`s record in the Electronic Medical Record (EMR).
