Use of A.I. in Radiology Showing Positive Benefits to the Community


Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS) has implemented an AI-powered system to optimize radiology practice in real-time collaboration and data organization.

Historically, radiology has had a crucial and active role in the evolution of healthcare. Radiology’s role in the current COVID-19 crisis is undoubtedly critical for its prevention and cure for the patients. 

The healthcare system worldwide, including radiologists, is facing a never before experienced exhaustion and financial constraints since the virus has spread. Nobody was ever truly ready for it.

Now, more than ever, radiology should adapt to the ever-changing world and technological advancements to avoid specialist burnouts and backlogs. 

A new age has dawned at Yale New Haven Health System as it fully embraces and AI-powered technology called PowerScribe Workflow Orchestration and PowerConnect Communicator to improve efficiency and promote safe practices in the facility.

Yale School of Medicine’s Dr. Irena Tocino, MD, FACR, professor of radiology and biomedical imaging and vice-chair of imaging informatics shared how the AI-based system has improved their workflow and efficiency, “Studies are analyzed first by the AI model. Positive results are automatically prioritized on the appropriate worklist, while negative results move down the list for later review. Having this solution in place helped YNHHS navigate the challenges because of the pandemic – from an influx of COVID-19 patients to the swift transition to remote reading.”

“YNHHS has transformed their reading room experience, keeping colleagues connected, more efficient, and safer in a virtual paradigm, while prioritizing patient care.”

The technology in place has forged a new path in helping the medical frontliners work smarter, not harder — allowing them to focus on analyzing efforts rather than organizing data. Real-time, remote collaborations optimized data analysis, making way for efficient application of healthcare. 

In these trying times, the PowerScribe Workflow Orchestration and PowerConnect Communicator is a promising technology that can unload the burden of the already burnout healthcare system if properly implemented.
