4ways continues to support the NHS and our teleradiologists in the fight against COVID-19. In that spirit, we are pleased to announce that we have rolled out access to the industry-leading diagnostic and educational support tool STATdx. The tool will help our teleradiologists to continue to deliver a high quality and accurate reporting service to NHS Trusts and private hospitals.
STATdx provides online access to a bank of reports from around the world, enabling users to have expert-based decision support, helping to increase speed, accuracy and conﬁdence in reporting on a wide range of imaging including more complex cases.
The tool has recently been updated with the latest clinical information regarding COVID-19, helping our panel in their reporting of novel coronavirus, its diagnosis and progression.
“We are pleased to be working with STATdx to help support our teleradiologists to produce the most accurate results for those who use our services.”Dr Ben Timmis, Medical Director at 4ways
With routine scanning drastically affected by the current situation, this tool provides our teleradiologists with the opportunity and platform to expand their knowledge and add to their continuing professional development.
STATdx is widely regarded as the leader in radiology reference solutions, developed by renowned radiologists across the globe with over 4,000 common and complex diagnoses and 200,000 expert-selected annotated image examples.
A study testing the effects of STATdx on radiology reporting found that radiologists who used the program had a 19% reduction in diagnostic error, whilst the hardest cases showed a 37% reduction.
Dr Ben Timmis, Medical Director at 4ways, said: “We are pleased to be working with STATdx to help support our teleradiologists to produce the most accurate results for those who use our services. We are continually looking at ways in which we can improve the quality of our services and the implementation of this tool will better support our teleradiologists in their aim of improving patient care. It’s a fantastic educational and support tool for our teleradiologists and it’s never been a more important time for them to have access to the latest clinical information.”
