ESR iGuide provides users with guidelines and recommendations based on the latest medical evidence, integrates seamlessly into the clinical workflow and existing IT infrastructure, supports and educates referring physicians, and gives patients confidence that they receive the best radiological healthcare.</p> <p>Following an ESR-led European Commission study revealing that imaging referral guidelines are hardly used in Europe, the ESR initiated a project to make evidence-based guidelines available in a user-friendly way. Clinical decision support offers an ideal solution to this problem, as guidelines can be kept up-to-date while being available to referring physicians at the point of care.</p> <p>Since 2014, the ESR works with the ACR and NDSC to make a Europeanised version of the ACR Appropriateness Criteria available to referring physicians in Europe. A joint rapid response team continuously updates the guidelines, while NDSC licenses the ESR’s guidelines and is responsible for all technical and commercial aspects.</p> <p>The first ESR iGuide pilot projects have been running since 2016, among others in four hospitals in Croatia, the Highlands Hospital in Jönköping, Sweden, as well as sites in Ireland, Spain, Germany and Qatar. Preliminary results from Croatia indicate that up to one quarter of imaging referrals are not or only moderately appropriate according to the referral guidelines. By using ESR iGuide, up to three percent of referrals were cancelled, while in up to five percent of cases a more appropriate examination was chosen. By utilising the data and analytics capabilities of ESR iGuide, further educating referrers can improve these results in future.</p> <p>Check out the ECR 2017 posters on the <u><a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1594/esi2017/ESI-0009">ESR iGuide implementation in Jönköping</a></u> and the <u><a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1594/esi2017/ESI-0023">pilot project in Croatia</a></u>, presented as part of the EuroSafe Imaging poster exhibition.</p> <p>Please go to our <u><a href="http://myesr.org/quality-safety/esr-iguide">website</a></u> for more information on ESR iGuide, or <strong>visit the ESR booth</strong> at the Nordic Congress of Radiology.</p> <p> </p> <div> <i class="rectangle"> <article class="media media-medium-image view-mode-image-rectangle"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/png"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/rectangle_medium/public/2016-11/ESR-iGuide%201000pt.png?itok=r5fRJ5A1" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </article> </i> </div> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/1.jpg 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/1.jpg?itok=YJ-m_lAB 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/1.jpg?itok=YJ-m_lAB 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/1.jpg?itok=YJ-m_lAB 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/1.jpg?itok=YJ-m_lAB 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2016-10/1.jpg?itok=YJ-m_lAB 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img srcset="/sites/default/files/2016-10/1.jpg" alt="ESR" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> <span class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_32 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="http://myesr.org/article/1087" data-a2a-title="Nordic Congress of Radiology 2017 - ESR iGuide"><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a> <a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a> <a class="a2a_button_google_plus"></a></span> Thu, 08 Jun 2017 07:14:01 +0000 moderator_Florian 1087 at http://myesr.org Deutscher Röntgenkongress 2017 - ESR iGuide http://myesr.org/article/1069 <span property="schema:name">Deutscher Röntgenkongress 2017 - ESR iGuide</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/64" lang="" about="/user/64" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">moderator_Florian</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2017-05-03T09:14:49+00:00">Wed, 05/03/2017 - 11:14</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p>ESR iGuide ist ein klinisches Entscheidungshilfesystem (<em>clinical decision support </em>– CDS) für europäische Leitlinien für die Zuweisung für bildgebende Verfahren in der Medizin, entwickelt von der European Society of Radiology (ESR) und National Decision Support Company (NDSC).</p> <p>Durch die Kombination der medizinischen Expertise der ESR und des bewährten CDS Systems von NDSC ermöglicht ESR iGuide eine effiziente, nachvollziehbare und zuverlässige Entscheidungshilfe um Ärzte in der klinischen Praxis bei der Auswahl der angemessensten bildgebenden Verfahren zu unterstützen. ESR iGuide macht Nutzern evidenzbasierte Leitlinien zum Leistungszeitpunkt verfügbar und kann nahtlos in den klinischen Arbeitsablauf und existierende IT-Infrastruktur integriert werden. Dadurch gibt ESR iGuide Patienten die Sicherheit, dass sie die beste radiologische Gesundheitsversorgung erhalten.</p> <p>Nachdem eine von der ESR koordinierte Studie der Europäischen Kommission ergab, dass Zuweisungsleitlinien in Europa kaum verwendet werden, hat die ESR ein Projekt zur Einführung von nutzerfreundlichen Leitlinien in einem CDS System gestartet, und arbeitet seit 2014 mit dem American College of Radiology (ACR) und NDSC zusammen. Seit 2016 sind <em>Appropriateness Criteria </em>des ACR in von der ESR adaptierter Form auch in Europa verfügbar. Ein gemeinsames Rapid Response Team aktualisiert die Leitlinien laufend. NDSC wurde von der ESR mit dem Vertrieb der Leitlinien in Europa beauftragt, und nimmt alle kommerziellen und technischen Aufgaben wahr.</p> <p>Die ersten Pilotprojekte von ESR iGuide werden seit 2016 von NDSC Europe betreut, unter anderem in vier Spitälern in Kroatien, der Region Jönköping in Schweden, in Irland, Spanien, Deutschland und Katar. Vorläufige Resultate aus Kroatien zeigen, dass bis zu einem Viertel der Anforderungen nicht leitlinienkonform sind. Durch die Nutzung von ESR iGuide wurden bis zu drei Prozent der nicht angemessenen Zuweisungen storniert, und in bis zu fünf Prozent der Fälle wurde ein besser bewertetes Verfahren ausgewählt. Durch bessere Schulung der Nutzer sollen diese Ergebnisse in Zukunft noch verbessert werden.</p> <p>Mehr Informationen zu ESR iGuide finden Sie <a href="http://myesr.org/quality-safety/esr-iguide">online</a>, oder <strong>besuchen Sie uns am Stand der ESR</strong> am Deutschen Röntgenkongress vom 24.-27.
