Frost & Sullivan lauds Ikonopedia’s Innovative Approach to Optimizing Breast Imaging Reporting and Workflow

Richardson, Texas June 28, 2016 — Based on its recent analysis of the breast imaging reporting solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Ikonopedia with the 2016 Frost & Sullivan Enabling Technology Leadership Award in the Breast Reporting System Market. Ikonopedia is an innovative structured breast reporting and MQSA management system designed to dramatically improve reporting efficiency, and optimize facility operations.

Frost & Sullivan is pleased to recognize Ikonopedia for its innovative approach to breast imaging reporting, which has not only helped mammography centers optimize patient and referring physician reporting, but also to implement individualized patient risk assessment tools. <  Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has leveraged innovative technology to drive product quality, the foundation of delivering customer value.<  Best practice organizations deliver a unique and enjoyable experience in terms of awareness, consideration, purchase, and follow-up support that gives customers confidence in the company, its products, and its integrity.

“Ikonopedia was founded on the premise of developing technology to enable optimized workflow for radiologists through the use of breast imaging report generation software tools that index breast findings based on what they look like rather than what they are called,” said Darshana De, Research Analyst Frost & Sullivan. “Today, levering modern technology to execute a remote, Web-based installation and training process, end users have responded favorably.This innovative approach has helped mammography centers implement individualized patient risk assessment factors and optimize reporting tools. This not only provides patients with key breast health information, but also offers clinicians an effective and streamlined workflow solution.”

Ikonopedia is an innovative structured breast reporting and MQSA management system designed to dramatically improve reporting efficiency, and optimize facility operations. All findings are saved as discrete data which allows Ikonopedia to prevent errors, maintain BI-RADS-compliant language, and automate many time-consuming processes.  Ikonopedia makes it possible to eliminate laterality errors, automatically choose exam-appropriate patient letters, and pull forward findings from past exams, along with many other time-saving features.  Built on modern technology, Ikonopedia employs a closed-loop follow-up system to make sure that no patient can ever get lost in the shuffle of a busy clinic.

“We are proud to have played a role in the transition of breast imaging reporting to automated software designed to help streamline processes, improve reporting efficiency, and optimize facility operations.<  This recognition from Frost & Sullivan further validates the impact of giving users stronger tools and better data on improving patient care by enabling them to focus on quality trends and improvement rather than data entry and manual tracking processes.<  Additionally, with the time and cost savings associated with our new remote installation capabilities, we believe that this further demonstrates the appropriateness of Ikonopedia’s breast reporting tools for a boutique private practice all the way to bustling academic centers,” said Emily Crane, CEO of Ikonopedia.
