Automated Critical Test Result Notification System: Architecture, Design, and Assessment of Provider Satisfaction

  • October 30, 2014

In Research and Publication
The purposes of this study were to describe the system architecture and design of Alert Notification of Critical Results (ANCR), an automated system designed to facilitate communication of critical imaging results between care providers; to report providers’ satisfaction with ANCR; and to compare radiologists’ and ordering providers’ attitudes toward ANCR.
