Pathology departments are ensured compliance with in‐house and/or national standards — such as the new synoptic reporting requirements set forth by the Commission on Cancer. mTuitive follows all new standards development and, as part of our standard agreement, ensures your department maintains compliance.
CAP eFRM/xPert for Pathology provides a true single step sign out by capturing structured data in addition to case narratives at the point of examination. Results are automatically delivered to the pathology system which greatly reduces costs and errors associated with transcription.
Automated calculations and error checks eliminate simple human errors.
The process makes for accurate collection and comparison of cancer data which directly impacts cancer screening and treatment protocols.
Consistently offers an interpreting clinician quick, complete and concise documentation in a uniformed format. CAP eFRM/xPert for Pathology uses medically consistent terminology which improves communication and decreases questions from clinicians and cancer registrars. Customers of the pathology report are more satisfied by the reduction in report turnaround time.
Offer data to an interpreting clinician in an easy‐to‐read format with medically consistent terminology.
Automatically deliver data to software applications and Cancer Registry. Adds the ability to mine data across all pathology reports.
Provide time saving assistance and error prevention when diagnosing slides.
Cancer Centers who maintain accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (ACS CoC) are required to meet minimum data reporting standards for the classification of malignant tumors. The College of American Pathologists (CAP) developed cancer protocols and checklists to assist pathology and oncology departments in meeting these standards. SNOMED® International, a Division of the CAP, developed the SNOMED CT encoded versions of these checklists. mTuitive, Inc. was the first company to license the SNOMED CT Encoded CAP Cancer Checklists and provides a fully electronic system for synoptic reporting of tumors for all of the checklists. The unique design of the product reduces (or, in many cases, eliminates) the report transcription and data abstraction associated with the cancer registry process.
In August 2005, mTuitive became the first company to execute a licensing agreement with The Royal College of Pathologists (London, U.K.) to create an electronic version of cancer reporting datasets developed by the Royal College to standardize the classification and reporting of malignant tumors. The datasets ensure consistency in the application of the standards, which will become required for the reporting of all malignant tumor cases in the United Kingdom. The capture of standardized reporting data will facilitate the automation of cancer registry reporting and data abstraction processes across the British healthcare system.
Many institutions have established their own reporting protocols analogous to those of CAP and RCP. Using mTuitive's Agile Author, institutions can easily develop their own protocols to meet the internal standards they have set forth. This gives users the freedom to create more advanced calculations, include specific data elements or organize their reports more to their liking.
Knowledge engineers are experts at constructing meaningful, useful and simplistic protocols. mTuitive trains members of your pathology department to become knowledge engineers using the Agile Author. Knowledge engineers break down the information passed on by their pathologists to create standard templates that comply with department reporting measures.
New templates are created every month by our community of Knowledge Engineers. When a new template is ready for use, it is placed in our online community where it can be shared with the rest of the Agile Author clients. Using our discussion forums, Agile Author users can share ideas and collaborate on development of templates for new standards. Advanced training and helpful tips are available as well.
