Montage Healthcare Solutions (Philadelphia, Pa.), a privately-held company for enterprise search and performance analytics in radiology, announces a successful implementation and deployment of their data mining software at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pa. In use since early October, the organization is already seeing dramatic time savings in the amount of time needed to evaluate whether clinical material warrants research studies, develop training materials, and identify case examples for radiology residents and fellows.

Since the installation, there have been no requests for customized research reports from the radiology department. Radiologists, residents, and IT experts all save time and effort with the Montage tool.

Montage also queries pathology reports at Albert Einstein Medical Center and makes findings readily available for comparison to radiology reports, a capability that is unique to Montage. This capability helps to "close the loop" on radiology / pathology follow-up .
