With new payment models that reward quality and penalize readmissions, getting the right information at the right time can significantly improve patient outcomes and the financial health of a hospital. Ingalls Memorial Hospital has 560 beds and is located in Chicago's south suburbs. It is a leading regional health and the area's only independent not-for-profit system. As a community hospital, the vast majority of Ingalls' 450 physicians own independent practices. While this model has its benefits, it comes with challenges. Rapid communication of critical radiology results, for example, had become an area of physician concern.
Over 400,000 Americans currently have lung cancer. An estimated 221,200 cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2015 alone. Early detection increases survival by 52%. One of the keys to early detection is having radiologists look at scans for what are called incidental findings, which can often be ignored if they are not listed as the initial reason for the exam. Bart Daugherty, President and CEO of the Physicians’ Hospital system, was already using Critical Test Results Management (CTRM) software across multiple hospitals. But then he discovered that Notifi was different, and could be configured to alert on any keyword or phrase, which would significantly improve the identification of lung cancer (such as in the terms “lesions” or “masses”) in the incidental findings and trigger critical alerts. Within three months, 108 patients were entered into cancer navigation tracking, three of whom had positive cancers. These patients now had a 52% increased chance of survival.
