DoseMonitor is a single-server, browser-based software application that automates dose data collection and reporting.

“We are pleased that Radiology Partners will be offering DoseMonitor to their clients to monitor, report, and manage radiation dose in their clinical environments,” said Mike Battin, COO of PACSHealth, LLC. “Radiology Partners has a passion for and commitment to clinical excellence and improving their patients’ health and clinical quality while helping to control the overall cost of health care. The ability to effectively monitor radiation dose indices during certain medical imaging procedures has become increasingly important.”

DoseMonitor fully integrates into a radiology information system, electronic medical record, and the American College of Radiology’s Dose Index Registry, helping to eliminate time-consuming manual steps and reducing input errors. Facilities can accurately depict historical exposure and compare, aggregate, and interpret data from ionizing radiation sources for an individual patient, exam, or between diagnostic modalities in multiple facilities.

“Providing outstanding clinical value and service to our clients and patients is of utmost importance to Radiology Partners,” said Anthony Gabriel, chief operating officer of Radiology Partners. “To do so, we are investing in state-of-the-art clinical, operational and technology resources, including this collaboration with PHS to offer DoseMonitor. We will utilize DoseMonitor’s innovative technology to track, report and manage radiation dose levels for our clients across the country in order to help achieve our patient care goals.”

Radiology Partners, established in 2012, serves more than 90 hospitals and facilities in markets across Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Texas. For more information, visit Radiology Partners.
