Rural imaging center takes aim at medical mistakes in healthcare

Thumb MRI Center is taking the initiative to decrease costly medical errors and increase the quality of healthcare by integrating a patented artificial intelligence technology developed by AIdentity Matrix. In addition, a unique work flow process is being developed at the Center to accommodate the interactive technology.

The technology increases the quality of patient care by standardizing and optimizing the work flow processes including accurate data reporting, verifying patient safety questions, and cross validating the exams between the radiologist and the intelligent software. This technology is also capable of directing information processes to create a self-paced, user friendly learning and skill development environment that will give physicians and medical technologists direct and interactive training and testing.

In response to the demand for higher quality testing, Thumb MRI Center has replaced its MRI scanner with the High Field Vantage XGV Short Bore scanner from Toshiba America Medical Systems. This system provides the latest state of the art imaging techniques needed for physicians to make consistent and confident diagnoses.

Many of the large insurance companies are looking at solutions to decrease fraud and medical mistakes. With a joint effort between American Diagnostic Medicine, AIdentity Matrix, and Advanced Diagnostic Imaging, a multi-specialty radiology group, Thumb MRI Center is able to be proactive on decreasing medical mistakes and increasing the quality of care for its patients. “Hopefully, this model will be implemented to other medical centers and institutions nationwide,” says Diane Ruhlman, Director of Thumb MRI Center.
