Radloop Actionable Findings

What are Actionable Findings?

Radloop fills a major gap in patient care

An actionable finding (AF) is a finding on a medical imaging report that requires further evaluation. AFs include critical findings (CF) and non-critical incidental findings (IF).

According to the ACR white paper on parameters for communication of diagnostic imaging findings;

“Critical findings suggest a need for immediate or urgent intervention.

Incidental findings are those that the interpreting physician believes are significant and unexpected, may have a reasonable probability of impacting the patients’ health, and may not require immediate attention but, if not acted on, may worsen over time and likely result in an adverse patient outcome.”

What are Critical Findings & what’s the difference?

Critical findings (CF) are a subcategory of actionable findings (AF) that suggest a need for immediate intervention. Critical findings are usually defined by an institutional committee of physicians that agree upon findings that require immediate non-routine communication. Radloop focuses on actionable, non-critical findings.

Failure to Comply

An average of 26% of all exams with actionable recommendations are lost to follow-up. Failure to follow-up may result in poor outcomes for patients. We have a responsibility to ensure patients are aware of their findings and plan for further radiologic or non-radiologic monitoring if indicated. Early detection of disease improves patient outcomes, so we need a system that reliably notifies physicians and  patients of their findings.

 

The Radloop Solution:

Radloop Actionable Findings

Radloop fills a major care gap in patient care. Incidental findings are managed differently than critical findings but deserve the same attention and diligence. Although not necessarily significant today, incidental findings may have a big impact on a patient’s health in the future.

Radloop’s algorithm automatically finds important incidental findings in the text of radiology reports and extracts them to ensure proper follow-up. Patients are notified of findings and scheduled for follow-up if necessary. We integrate seamlessly with EMRs and can also be accessed through our own platform. Radloop ensures reliable closure of actionable incidental findings.
