MONTVALE, NJ–(Marketwired – September 16, 2015) – PENTAX Medical Company, a healthcare industry leader in endoscopic imaging, announced today the release of the latest update of endoPRO iQ®, version 7.7, a DIACAP certified information technology and image management software for endoscopy units. endoPRO iQ 7.7 unveils the latest advancements in software engineering with efficiency-focused workflow capabilities, new modules that support ICD-10 coding, and precision reporting for quality measurements.
As healthcare reporting requirements shift from being fee-for-service to value based, it has become imperative for facilities and physicians to capture and report appropriate quality indicators to increase operational efficiency and facilitate clinical improvement. endoPRO iQ 7.7 is designed to streamline physician documentation by offering a user-friendly interface with new features like Template Favorites and Menu Favorites within Doc-U-Scribe™. The software’s sleek design and image review enhancements also provide users with a new drag-and-drop image annotation feature. Images can now be placed onto an anatomical model, annotating the image with the location of where in the body the image was taken during a procedure.
endoPRO iQ 7.7 provides a rich new series of modules, including the new pathology results feature. This module enables users to easily report adenoma detection rates, track procedures that are pending pathology results, and assign histological results. In addition, the software shows side-by-side image comparisons of obtained tissue and pathology results within the procedure report.
With version 7.7, physicians can use time stamps associated with Cecum image documentation to report withdrawal averages and withdrawal time, and determine the rate of complete intubations. Physicians now have up-to-date compliance for both GIQIQuIC and PQRS reporting, which will support the advancement of physician and overall facility performance.
endoPRO iQ 7.7 has cross-platform compatibility, interfacing with all brands of endoscopic equipment, and integrating seamlessly with healthcare information systems and other medical devices crucial to quality patient care. The endoPRO iQ service and support team has years of experience converting EndoWorks and ProVation MD databases, providing access to all previously stored information from other platforms in endoPRO iQ.
