SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- SST Group, Inc., an innovative leader in DICOM image delivery and management since 2004, is excited to announce its partnership with Intermountain Healthcare is expanding. Intermountain is collaborating with Santa Clara-based SST Group to implement a state-of-the-art software platform called RDM™ (Radiation Dose Monitor). The RDM software solution allows medical professionals to collect, control, analyze and optimize doses delivered to patients during medical imaging examinations, image guided surgery and interventional procedures. Information collected is stored in a single repository, the Dose Archiving and Communication System (DACS). Vendor neutral and multi-modality, RDM is designed for all medical professionals responsible for the dose cycle (radiologists, technologists, director of radiology, medical physicists, etc.).
"Intermountain Healthcare's mission is to help our patients live the healthiest lives possible. We have a responsibility and desire for transparency in our provision of care as we treat our patients, to monitor and track the amount of irradiation patients receive when undergoing procedures which utilize ionizing radiation as part of that treatment. Radiation Dose Monitor by SST Group, allows Intermountain Healthcare to achieve the goal of capturing, reporting and utilizing the radiation dose used during treatment to help make informed decisions regarding the longitudinal care of our patients. Our guiding principles, regarding ionizing radiation, has always been to use the lowest dose possible without compromising the quality of the studies, Radiation Dose Monitor from SST Group allows us to take the next giant leap of assuring we are consistently doing the right procedure, at the right time, all of the time." Gregg Stout, Care Transformation Partner at Intermountain Healthcare.
"After a careful and rigorous comparison to other major suppliers of radiation dose management systems we are very honored that Intermountain has selected SST Group and the RDM (Radiation Dose Monitor) platform. With the selection of RDM, Intermountain Healthcare has embraced the innovative and comprehensive approach to radiation dose monitoring that RDM provides." Richard Murphy, President, SST Group, Inc.
The RDM platform offers many unique features important for monitoring dose. Its state of the art alert system informs users when predefined dose indicators have been exceeded at study and patient levels. Its advanced statistical tools enable medical physicists to make cross-dose data comparison between protocols, procedures, anatomical regions, group populations, machines and healthcare professionals. RDM calculates organ dose for CT and nuclear medicine, which is beneficial for decision making and also, it provides a full 3D map of the patient exposure during image guided surgery and interventional procedures with automatic Peak Skin Dose calculation. The RDM platform at Intermountain provides a complete picture of patient dose ensuring a proactive approach when managing high-risk patients.
