AHRA and National Imaging Network Launch AHRAdatalynx
Real-time product provides baseline for statistically significant dataset and ongoing data collection.
Sudbury, MA (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management is proud to make available for subscription its new benchmarking tool, AHRAdatalynx. After months of data collection, there is now a baseline for a statistically significant dataset, although the collection of data is ongoing. This revolutionary real-time product was developed in collaboration with National Imaging Network, a division of Regents Health Resources, Inc., along with input from AHRA members. AHRAdatalynx is an online portal that delivers access to thousands of timely key data elements for medical imaging leaders, including information on:
- Productivity & Utilization
- Compensation & Benefits
- Equipment & Usage
- Radiologists & Turnaround Time (TAT)
- Referring Physicians
AHRAdatalynx utilizes the Mirror(TM) automated data and analytics tool for imaging providers. Mirror(TM) is powered by Dimensional Insight´s Business Intelligence Platform which is the underlying technology for “The Diver Solution” — ranked Best in KLAS in the “2011 Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Professional Services” report (http://www.KLASresearch.com).
Ed Cronin, AHRA CEO: “AHRAdatalynx compresses the months of collection, analytics, and book production previously utilized by AHRA into real-time data that is as current as the last member who completes the surveys. These comprehensive operational metrics were designed with input from an AHRA member advisory group. So our membership can feel confident that the information available will have immediate applications to their facilities. I encourage all members to log in and complete the surveys. The more participation, the more robust the data.”
Brian Baker, National Imaging Network President: “Performance, efficiency and quality are relative measures. Healthcare providers must be able to quantify their operations against their peers to gain perspective, determine where to focus their attention and improve performance. AHRAdatalynx is filling a critical need for anonymous benchmarking data for AHRA members and their facilities.”
