Your group and care providers can rely on REAL Radiology’s consistent, high-quality, and on-time reporting. Potential stroke patients are an immediate priority with the REAL Radiology Stroke Protocol Program.

REAL Radiology Stroke Protocol:

  1. From the ER (stroke facility), the patient’s images are uploaded to REAL’s PACS (OnePacs) secure, stable cloud-based.
  2. Appropriate studies are flagged as “Stroke Protocol.”
  3. Stroke/Critical exams receive priority (Critical)
  4. A REAL radiologist reviews the images, and upon completion, the report results are immediately available within REAL’s PACS (OnePacs), and the sending facility receives electronically (according to workflow interface).
  5. A call is made directly to the ED physician to communicate the results. Simultaneously, the report “delivers” according to the client’s workflow preferences. Radiology reports are always viewable via REAL Radiology’s PACS. The workflow options may include: fax/virtual fax or imported electronically into the sending facility’s platform, e.g., HIS/RIS/PACS via optional Bi-Directional HL7 integration.
