Description: Order Tracking Manager (OTM) Radiology is a web-based application pulling real-time information from VistA for the purpose of assisting staff who have a role with diagnostic imaging. Currently, no systemic approach exists in the VA to ensure the diagnostic reports are seen by the ordering physician nor ability for the ordering provider to easily review, sign complete notes in the patient record. Typically, the ordering physician signs onto Computerized Patient Record System (CPRS) and will receive an automatic CPRS alert to review an available report from an imaging request. However, there is no ‘read receipt’ notification in CPRS that allows the Radiologist to confirm whether the ordering physician has reviewed the report in CPRS. The primary issue with this lack of confirmation stems from the time-sensitive nature of findings, specifically codes needing expedited actions by VA providers.

This is no dedicated website for this technology. The Vendor is used in its place.
