DIAGNOSTICVARIATION

The Radiology module has a keen focus on clinical variation and activity/cost analysis, acting as an optimisation, patient care and cost improvement tool for organisations covering this activity. Diagnostic activity is a key part of patient flow, especially when considering emergency activity flowing through the Emergency Department, as well as both elective and emergency diagnostic care throughout hospital admissions. Whether highlighting over-requesting of certain tests or improving diagnostic result turnaround times, this module from Draper & Dash works to identify the key areas of focus by volumes or levels of variation, therefore helping to drive best practice by detailing where and by whom the most effective use of radiology tests is being performed.
