Frequently Asked Questions
What does Eon’s technology do?
What are the benefits of Eon’s technology and why should a hospital or care facility invest in it?
EPM ensures no follow-up exams fall through the cracks by providing longitudinal patient tracking and a built-in recall system for users to monitor upcoming exams for patients.
EPM reduces time spent manually entering data and busy work. EPM users report spending 5-10 minutes per patient per year versus 1-3 hours per patient per year previously. With EPM, unlimited letter templates and letter population are also available at no additional cost, making it easy to print and send personalized letters in a matter of seconds.
How does the ACR/NRDR/LCSR interface with EPM function and in what way does it help in keeping the LCSR up to date?
What disease states can EPM manage and track? Why are you adding disease by disease; what about comorbid conditions?
Our philosophy is an inch wide, mile deep approach will win the day in the end because of the depth of data that will be available. Attacking and solving disease-state specific problems is how EPM is immediately valuable in each disease module. As Eon’s artificial intelligence trains on larger data sets, patients with comorbid diseases will be linked. This will optimize care pathways for other patients with similar comorbid disease states.
Is EPM compatible with any EHR or EMR?
What is the installation process for EPM and what are the requirements for our system to be able to use it?
The only requirements for a facility to integrate EPM is that a staff member be available to oversee the project. The EPM team is able to integrate in any environment, which means no upgrades of EHRs are necessary. There is also no need to rekey in patient data; all patient data is ported over seamlessly.
From critical access facilities to large academic centers, any size hospital or imaging center can have success with EPM.
What level of support does Eon offer after installation?
How often is EPM upgraded and are there any additional charges associated with an upgrade?
How much time is required by staff to enter follow-up data, notes, and other miscellaneous information?
How does EPM identify and flag radiology reports for incidental nodules?
Does using EPM cause any “double documentation”?
