Core Benefits: An Intelligent Image Reading Assistant

Healthcare providers must carefully balance competing time and resource demands. The integrated AI in SilverBack can increase workflow efficiencies in the following ways:

  • Higher quality of care
  • Decreased misdiagnosis liability
  • Increased secondary imaging study volumes and associated revenues

Key Product Features

  • AI algorithms have the ability to detect critical abnormalities and alert the radiologist that an expedited interpretation or additional imaging study may be in order before the patient even leaves the department.
  • Workflow algorithms support time-dependent study routing to appropriate reading locations.
  • Pre-fetch and routing operations retrieve and deliver studies, enabling on-the-fly remote readings.
  • SilverBack’s Central Dictionary maintains the current status and location of all managed studies.

Use Cases

Increase Study Volume per Reading Radiologist: The demand for medical imaging is increasing dramatically and is expected to soon reach 30% of overall health data storage volume. The amount of data per study has grown nearly 4x in the last decade alone. AI can assist with mundane and repetitive tasks, allowing clinicians to focus on reading.

Enhance Study Efficacy: The combination of data explosion and increased demand places significant stress on the ability of radiologists to accurately diagnose patients. Studies show that false negative diagnosis rates are at 30% and false positive diagnoses are at 2%. AI can help proactively prioritize studies that need immediate attention, as well as go back and suggest prior studies that may need re-examination.

Improve Quality of Care: Our family of data imaging solutions allows HMOs, ACOs and insurers to effectively manage large populations by risk stratifying their patients, creating better decision support pathways and improving patient care.

Leading Edge Technology for AI Imaging

DataFirst supports the American College of Radiology’s Imaging 3.0 Initiative by delivering systems that enable AI applications to work across modalities, optimizing practice management and patient care.
