UHN selects Kailo Medical’s SonoReview
September 29, 2021
CALGARY – Kailo Medical, a leader in medical imaging workflow solutions, has announced that the University Health Network (UHN), a group of Ontario hospitals including Toronto General, Princess Margaret, Toronto Western and Toronto Rehab, renowned for discovery, education and patient care, will be implementing their structured reporting solution. The implementation of Kailo’s web-based solution will facilitate, streamline and standardize UHN’s medical imaging reporting.
“SonoReview’s structured reporting templates are far more than just headings on a page. The software responds to the data that’s being input and acts accordingly. This includes prompting further user input, highlighting abnormal values, determining follow up recommendations, tracking changes over time and many other business intelligence options,” said Leon Goonaratne (pictured), senior director of information technology at UHN. “This integration will enable UHN to easily adapt our diagnostic imaging templates to meet changing guidelines and scanning protocols.”
UHN is deploying SonoReview, Kailo Medical’s flagship structured reporting product. Doing so will facilitate new learners in UHN’s residency program, ensure their referring physicians receive the required content in their reports, and support evidence-based reporting and follow-up recommendations. In addition, UHN can leverage the data captured within SonoReview Web to further facilitate data mining and research.
Features and benefits of SonoReview Web include:
- Automated transfer of measurement data, resulting in improved accuracy
- Customized worksheets and report templates
- Tracking changes over time for things like liver lesions, thyroid nodules or obstetric history
- Web-based rendering of worksheets and reports for easy deployment through large institutions
UHN conducted a thorough due diligence process and selected Kailo Medical’s solution for its ability to easily integrate within their existing infrastructure and the company’s track record for collaborative implementation and excellent support.
“Given UHN’s status as a leading healthcare, academic, and research organization, we are excited to provide them with our newest release of SonoReview, a web-based version that will integrate directly into UHN’s Radiology Information System (RIS),” said Jessica Wilson, Kailo Medical’s VP of North America.
