Radiology iPhone App: eRoentgen - Appropriateness Critieria in the Palm of Your Hand!

The iPhone App Store now has yet another great Radiology-focused application geared towards improving quality of care. eRoentgen was developed by a physician at iAtros software. According to their website, iAtros software was founded by Constantine Brocoum, MD to provide mobile medical solutions to 21st century healthcare providers. In addition to eRoentgen™ for iPhone, iAtros is in the process of developing applications for a variety of mobile devices. Interestingly, Dr. Brocoum received his MD from Dartmouth Medical School and completed his residency in Diagnostic Radiology and fellowship in Neuroradiology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dr. Brocoum has since been a staff radiologist at Concord Regional Health Care in Concord, New Hampshire. During his tenure there he has chaired the radiology department and has taken an active role in the management of clinical and business practices of radiology. So what does eRoentgen do? eRoentgen™ (pronounced:ē-Rent´-gen) improves your diagnostic accuracy and reduces unnecessary radiology tests. By recommending appropriate tests for a given symptom or diagnosis, you can optimize patient care and reduce waste. This has the following benefits: Quality. By choosing the best test the first time around, the diagnosis is made quickly and accurately. Safety. Imaging tests are not without risk. Unnecessary exams increase radiation exposure and expose patients to contrast materials without clear benefit. Economy. Diagnostic imaging tests are very expensive. Inappropriate radiology testing represents a significant healthcare cost. Fewer 3rd party payor denials will reduce waste and diminish your administrative headaches. Convenience. Using the elegant and simple iPhone user interface of eRoentgen™, the health care professional can easily and quickly determine the best imaging test while in the exam room. Keeping Current. Radiology is a vast and constantly-changing field. Keeping up with these changes is a daunting task. eRoentgen™ is an up-to-date, invaluable tool.
