In one Australian Emergency Department studied, close to 30% of all radiology test results were missed (32% of these were abnormal), and 34% of the abnormal results were clinically significant (likely to cause morbidity of moderate or high severity).
In this webinar Assoc. Professor Richard Paoloni shares insights on how timely results review ensures abnormal results are not missed or delayed, relieving some of the risks to patients, doctors and institutions.
Join us as part of the ACVBHC webinar series on Thursday 5 May at 11 am AEST to learn more about how timely test results review can improve the safety and effectiveness of clinical diagnostic processes and optimise patient health outcomes, as well as the ways in which you can adopt these practices in your healthcare facility despite the general challenges that persist.
