GE HealthCloud radiology department customers will be able to access and use Radiology Protocols’ sophisticated protocol management platform, providing increased productivity and improving quality of exams.

The GE HealthCloud includes a suite of enterprise imaging applications and provides a robust platform for software vendors to deliver healthcare applications across the healthcare enterprise including large, complex IDNs.

Recognized as the industry standard for radiology imaging protocol management, Radiology Protocols offers the most intuitive online platform available in the radiology space. The company provides a customizable, scalable, HIPAA-secure hosted solution to document, organize, and tailor imaging protocols.

Its platform also allows providers to share best practices across their systems, instantaneously and seamlessly, eliminating paper-based files for this critical information.

"Radiology Protocols is pleased to take its place as one of the GE HealthCloud’s early and core applications which will enable exceptional connectivity and scalability for customers," said Stephen Baker, Founder and President of Radiology Protocols.

"This will allow for standardization of imaging protocols across IDN’s resulting in better utilization, sharing of best practices and improved patient care."

Radiology Protocols’ platform is vendor agnostic allowing customers to utilize the system across different equipment modalities and vendor platforms.

John Kalafut, Imaging Outcomes and Solutions Leader at GE Healthcare, commented, "The addition of Radiology Protocols to the GE HealthCloud adds significant value for our customers. Radiology Protocols delivers much needed quality improvement tool that imaging customers around the world need; a method to define, organize and maintain imaging protocols, for all modality types, on a centralized, web-based platform.

"As a vendor agnostic system, it can be used to manage the protocol process by all of our customers which is a great advantage for everyone."

Since its inception, Radiology Protocols has had a significant impact in radiology departments by enabling more consistent, high quality imaging procedures. This enhanced throughput is based on speeding examination times, reducing repeat studies call backs and other inefficiencies that waste time and financial resources. It also offer protocols for patient safety by ensuring radiation dose levels are appropriate.

Radiology Protocols provides an intuitive cloud based platform, which allows health systems and radiology departments to customize, document, and organize imaging protocols for establishing and sharing best practices across the subscriber’s entire network.
