How an Imaging Practice Used Analytics to Boost Mammography Quality

How an Imaging Practice Used Analytics to Boost Mammography Quality

Mayfair Diagnostics in Calgary, Canada, decided to implement VolparaEnterprise software to drive a quality improvement program using breast imaging analytics. Since their adoption of the software, they have been impressed by the broad impact the software is having across their network of 10 breast imaging facilities. The benefits realized cover multiple areas, including:

Technologist2Advancing technologists’ skills. Monitoring technologists’ positioning skills for every patient and every image allowed Mayfair’s Mammography Coordinator to identify ways in which technologists can strengthen their skills for improved image quality.

 

Streamlining the compliance process. Being able to automatically generate a list of studies that are relevant for compliance reviews has saved Mayfair’s Infrastructure Specialist 4–6 hours in the image selection process.
