White Paper Details How QIDS Improves Prediction of Patient Outcomes

By HealthMyne | April 4, 2018 | Blog

Indicative of the latest trends in healthcare focused on precision medicine, HealthMyne is at the forefront of new developments in quantitative imaging for oncology. “Leveraging Quantitative Imaging in Precision Medicine,” a white paper available for download here, explains how the entire multidisciplinary care team can benefit from the company’s innovative Quantitative Imaging Decision Support (QIDS)™ solution.

With QIDS, the team at HealthMyne has developed a solution that addresses the challenges radiologists face at the point-of-read in delivering consistent, standardized treatment response data to their referrers. The white paper outlines HealthMyne’s focus on sources of assessment inconsistency and ways they can be mitigated, providing clinical decision support both as radiologists interpret medical images and as this information is reported to the multidisciplinary team at the point-of-care.

“In the end, it comes down to what can we do to help the patient,” says HealthMyne Vice President Neal Miller. “QIDS provides data and decision support allowing both radiologists and the referring physician to make faster, more accurate decisions that can result in improved patient care.”

The premise behind QIDS is simple, even if the technology is not. The white paper details key elements of the QIDS approach:

  • Increases productivity of radiologists
  • Enables unambiguous clinical results
  • Automates decision support, at the point-of-read and at the point-of-care
  • Builds a precision medicine database of quantitative imaging metrics

What does this mean in practice? HealthMyne’s Director of Product Management Peter Hoban, PhD, says: “A more precise, deeper analysis provides better decision support, and more comprehensive communication between radiology and multidisciplinary teams, which can lead to greater clinical productivity and increased value.”

The white paper, also outlines three areas where new developments in quantitative imaging are allowing deep image analysis, even beyond the size of a lesion, to enable more precise patient management, the potential for improved outcomes, and a reduced cost of care.
