Expanded partnership focuses on maximizing benefits to patient care and increasing radiologist productivity
FT. WORTH, TX, USA, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Radiology Associates of North Texas (RANT), the largest private radiology practice in Texas and one of the largest in the nation, announced it is expanding its partnership with Rad AI, the nation’s fastest growing radiologist-led AI company, to use its advanced technology for generating customized radiology report impressions and consensus guideline recommendations to all its radiologists. As the premier radiology group for North Texas for over 80 years, RANT’s 225+ radiologists generate over 4.5 million reports per year for 44 hospitals and 26 imaging centers.
“Rad AI is a tremendous partner and their AI solution improves quality, efficiency, and, ultimately, improves patient care,” said Dr. Nicholas Galante, RANT’s Medical Director for Informatics. “Personally, Rad AI is the first AI solution that made me appreciate the benefits of adopting AI — I’m looking forward to seeing how AI can positively impact radiologists, practices, and health systems.”
Rad AI automatically generates a customized impression from the findings and clinical indication dictated by the radiologist, using the most advanced neural networks. It learns each radiologist’s language preferences from all of their prior reports, to create an impression that the radiologist can simply review and finalize. In addition, Rad AI improves report accuracy and consistency by making sure to include significant incidental findings, answering the main clinical question, and providing the latest consensus guideline recommendations for follow-up. The impression appears in the practice’s voice recognition software as soon as the radiologist finishes dictating the findings, without any clicks, hotkeys or new windows.
“Our initial group of radiologist users were very impressed by Rad AI’s ability to reduce fatigue and improve productivity using artificial intelligence, while improving the quality of patient care,” said Matt Long, RANT’s Chief Information Officer. “We evaluate many AI vendors, and Rad AI proved to not only be a valuable solution our radiologists wanted to use, but they’ve also been a fantastic partner in helping us fully leverage the power of AI to do more for our patients.”
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with RANT to all of their radiologists, and grow our relationship with this incredibly innovative practice,” said Dr. Jeff Chang, ER radiologist and co-founder of Rad AI. “RANT and Rad AI share the same values of being radiologist-led organizations that are compounding the benefits of outstanding radiologist expertise and cutting edge technology to provide the best possible patient care.”
