RCR promotes iRefer CDS software

By AuntMinnieEurope.com staff writers

September 16, 2022 -- The U.K. Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) has highlighted the rollout of the cloud-based software tool iRefer CDS (Clinical Decision Support) at 34 hospital groups in England.

The tool was developed by the RCR's preferred CDS partner MedCurrent, and it is designed to help clinicians request the most appropriate imaging investigation, such as MRI or CT. It also provides up-to-date guidance on a range of clinical problems at the point of care and could save the NHS millions of pounds a year, the RCR said.

"Radiology is under severe pressure because of chronic understaffing and the COVID-19 backlog. Tools like iRefer CDS can improve patient outcomes as well as saving money and the time of our clinical colleagues. This is good news all round," said RCR President Dr. Jeanette Dickson, in a news release.
