PenRad’s Nurse Navigator workbook increases productivity while enhancing patient care through the tracking, recording, and planning of the patient’s journey. As additional evaluation is required, facilities are able to record and track the sequential progression of each procedure or event for the patient’s journey, ranging from; additional imaging, to biopsy, to cancer board, to various therapies, to surgery and reconstruction.
For facilities offering Genetic consulting or arranging, the Nurse Navigator workbook also assists in this process. PenRad’s rich patient medical and risk system collects family cancer history, and automatically computes genetic testing eligibility with multiple models, optimizing the clinician’s time.
Offering the industry’s most comprehensive package for clinical relevance statistics, PenLung’s pathology system fulfills the needs for the general audit. It also offers many extended benefits for research to track direct correlation between imaging attributes and pathology, and correlation with patient risk factors such as gender and age.
The pathology system automates correlation of pathology for each abnormality for initial and secondary pathology (re-biopsy and surgical). As a biopsy is initiated for each abnormality (bound to imaging exam and location), a pathology exam record is created pending pathological results.
PenRad offers as an option a pathology results interface (HL7) that attaches the pathologist report to the pathology exam and biopsy exam for reference to automate biopsy report generation and pathology tracking.
