Referral Triage

Enabling effective decision making

The radiology referral triage process for managing patient referrals has traditionally been a paper based process. This manual process requires effort by administrators, MRT’s and radiologists to prioritise examinations according to their own urgency levels and protocol workflows. This process has been found to be both time consuming and inefficient, with the added risk of the paper referral being mislaid within the process.

Comrad is excited to announce the availability of COMRAD Referral Triage, an innovative electronic solution to increase the efficiency of the referral triage process. The COMRAD Referral Triage workflow is an efficient workflow tool that eliminates paper based referral processing and allows effective utilisation of existing resources, to better manage referrals in order to reduce patient waiting times. Referral Triage is an optional workflow that supports referral review, prioritisation (grading) and protocolling workflows.
