Mammography Reporting System Inc. was showing at RSNA 2006 an interactive patient history collection system that allows patients to enter their medical history into a Tablet PC or kiosk and store their signature, so that the information can be downloaded directly into the MRS patient history data base.
According to MRS, once the data is sent directly into the MRS patient history database, the technologist verifies or edits the patient history and puts the exam into the Wait for Findings list. When the radiologist accesses the patient images from the work list on the digital workstation, patient history in MRS is automatically displayed. The radiologist can then generate the exam report in MRS via One-Touch Templates using touch screen or mouse and/or integrated voice recognition, MRS said. The report is then sent to the RIS and or PACS/EMR.
