Primordial Announces Successful Deployments of Its New, Real-Time Whiteboard and Patient Tracking System for Radiology Departments

Primordial, a leading vendor of workflow applications for the medical imaging market, announced today the first two deployments of Primordial RealTime™ -- a real-time Electronic Whiteboard and Operational Tracking Platform -- at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York and Mission Hospital in Asheville, NC.

At both NYU and Mission, RealTime is providing advanced tracking of patients, exams, rooms, procedures, laboratory results, and departmental operations customized to the unique workflow requirements of ED, MR, CT, Interventional, and other areas.

The genesis of RealTime stems from the need of imaging departments to move beyond the traditional "greaseboards" and paper workflows which are highly inefficient due to manual data entry, and lack of widespread visibility into patient, room, exam, and provider status. RealTime addresses these issues by providing information-rich, customizable electronic whiteboards that are visible anywhere.

“Mission Hospital identified the need to develop an interactive electronic communications and patient tracking board as a core need moving forward,” said John Campbell, Mission Hospital’s Chief Imaging Informatics Officer. “RealTime enabled us to design a customized informatics system that would allow more immediate access to our patients’ progress in various stages of their procedures and include vital information for their quality of care.

“We now have successfully deployed RealTime in six modalities and radiology nursing areas within the department. It has improved the ability for all areas of radiology to see the patient progress throughout the entire patient care cycle. This innovative approach of imaging workflow has resulted in fewer steps in the clinical process thus allowing more time with the patient. We were also able to improve the communication with the patients’ and their families as to their progress through the department.

“What started off initially as a radiology centric project involved into a joint venture between radiology and emergency departments. We were able to reduce the phone calls from the ED by 90% and vastly improve ED-CT throughput. Our next steps are to focus on the waiting rooms and provide patients and their families with information boards tailored for public display.”

Tony Barulic, product manager of RealTime at Primordial, commented: “RealTime’s truly customizable views allow departments to tailor their electronic whiteboards to match existing processes, easing training and adoption. Web-architected design allows visibility from one department to another without the need of phone calls. Tablet and touch-device user interface with drag-and-drop functionality enables RealTime to be as mobile as the hospital’s staff. RealTime provides a whole new approach to managing the daily chaos in radiology departments.”

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
