Actionable Findings

Communicate. Document. Close the Loop.

When Actionable Findings are not communicated or acted on appropriately, there can be dire consequences for patients and costly malpractice claims for providers.
Eon EPM closes the loop on required follow-up documentation, as well as triggers next steps to ensure patient capture. Provider-to-provider communication is confirmed, reducing delay in follow-up care, and allowing hospitals to follow the trigger and capture the follow-up exam.

What are Actionable Findings?

Actionable Findings are unexpected results that should be acted on. In radiology, certain findings require special communication with referring clinicians. Both The American College of Radiology (ACR) and The Joint Commission (TJC) have provided guidance on Actionable Findings, each designating three categories that require communication and clinical decision.

Actionable Findings Module

Critical, Urgent, and Incidental findings are part of everyday exams. Close the communication loop.

Failure to Comply

Inadequate communication and follow-up of Actionable Findings represent a serious breakdown point in the diagnostic process and presents potential patient harm. This can result in:
  • Missed Diagnosis
  • Unnecessary Testing
  • Lost Revenue
  • Delayed Treatment
  • Poor Patient Outcomes
  • Legal Liability
