    • Game # 2 - Grey Issues: Match the box
    • Grey Issues
    • Game # 4 – Motion??? What is better? Viewing images in cine mode – scrolling Viewing images in tile mode Cine Tile
    • Workflow
    • Workflow
    • Workflow The reading room is an environment where highly variable tasks are performed Long periods of solitary work Collaboration with individuals
    • Workflow The reading room is an environment where highly variable tasks are performed Long periods of solitary work Collaboration with individuals Collaboration with teams
    • Workflow The reading room is an environment where highly variable tasks are performed Long periods of solitary work Collaboration with individuals Collaboration with teams The reading room is a work area for more than just radiologists!
    • Baltimore VA Medical Center Hospital opened January 1993 connected to University of Maryland Hospital ~100,000 examinations per year Hospital and radiology department were designed for digital rather than conventional imaging
    • The Advantage of PACS is Improved Workflow Rather Than Just Filmless We found 59 steps in the process of ordering, obtaining, filing, retrieving, and reporting a Chest radiograph in our department in 1989
    • Workflow Analysis Performed 1989 by engineering firm, BAH Analyzed workflow associated with an inpatient chest radiograph performed in the radiology department
    • Ward Clerk Referring Clinician Nurse 5. Flag order in chart Get chart from clerk Medical Clerk 7. Take chart from bin 6. Place chart in “pending orders” bin Write orders in chart 8. Document order in chart 54. Sort radiology reports 10. Contact radiology with patient info 9. Ask clerk to schedule study 55. Bring reports to wards Give chart to clerk 12. Inform nurse of scheduled study 13. Contact transportation personnel Fill out study request 56. Sort reports 57. File reports in chart Transcriptionist Film Room Clerk Radiology Clerk 45. Retrieve tapes Transportation Aide 46. Transport tapes for dictation 18. Check recently pulled films 11. Schedule patient 47. Transcribe and print reports 19. Search for films in library 14. Transport patient to dept. 15. Look up index card 48. Bring report to film room 20. Write new study on jacket 32. Transport patient back 16. Review card for old exams 50. Bring report to front desk 35. Combine with old studies 17. Give card to film room 51. Give report to radiologists 36. Bring films to reading room 21. Place request in pending bin 53. Take report to Medical Admin. 49. File report in film jacket 31. Call transportation 33. Re-file index card Radiologist 37. Take films from “stack” 38. Remove films and requests Technologist 39. Hang films 40. Review images and reports 22. Retrieve request and patient Dark Room Tech 41. Dictate case 23. Obtain images 42. Take down films 25. Bring films to processor 24. Take cassettes to dark rm. Tech 43. Return films to jacket 26. Process films 28. Check films for quality 44. Return jackets to “stack” 27. Return films to tech 29. Update patient index card 52. Review and sign report 30. Return study card to clerk 34. Bring films to film room
    • Workflow How Many of the 59 Steps Are Eliminated With Filmless Operation?
    • 8 or 9 Steps Required in Integrated (Workflow Optimized) Department (8 Voice Recognition, 9 Digital Dictation) Referring Clinician 1. Physician order entry on Transportation Aide HIS Technologist 2. Transport patient to dept. 9. Report available on HIS 3. Choose patient from modality work list 6. Transport patient back 4. Obtain images 5. Check images for quality Radiologist 7. Review images and reports 8. Dictate and verify study with voice recognition system
    • Old Reading Room
    • Recognize This Interior?
    • Yugo
    • After Transition to Digital Increasing Complaints of Eyestrain, Neck, Back and Wrist and Hand Pain, and Complaints of Excess Noise and Ventilation
    • Studies of Impact of Reading Room Environment on Clinical Practice
    • Fatigue Levels as a Function of Ambient Room Light Low Fatigue Medium Fatigue High Fatigue p=0.09
    • Ambient Room Light and Interpretation Accuracy: “Clinically Significant Findings” Off Half On On
    • The Challenge Completely redesign the old reading room (approx. 23 x 23 feet or 532 sq. ft) to create: Ergonomically optimized productive and low stress environment for 5 very different radiology workspaces (10 x 10 ft space per reading area) Create a clinical reading room environment that allows the radiologists to collaborate easily yet minimizes distractions
    • The Challenge Create showcase for ergonomic room design Create “laboratory”/research environment” for study of physical and cognitive ergonomic factors Share with virtual and in-person visitors and generalize this information to health care workspaces
    • Charette Process Concentrated effort to solve an architectural problem Listen Envision Draw
    • Charette Process: Experts From Across the Country and Partnership with GE Healthcare Charette Process with Expertise in Radiology, PACS, Digital Imaging, Industrial Engineering/Six Sigma, GE Lighting and Partners in Technology and Ergonomics
    • Final Design: Hybrid of “Cubicles” & Offices Maximizes Flexibility Each Room with Unique Ergonomic Approach MRI Scanner Room
    • Solution Indirect individual and programmable computer controlled lighting with dimmable controls to allow maximal flexibility for each individual radiologist
    • Ventilation and Temperature Controls: New Radiology Reading Room
    • Acoustics
    • Acoustics in New Reading Room The new reading room has sound absorbing materials and acoustic paneling A sound masking system generates “noise” in the general frequency range of human voice (also works to attenuate MRI scanning noise) We have conducted initial studies to document the impact of “white noise” (actually focused in the range of speech and MRI scanner noise) on speech recognition
    • Music and Noise Music or white noise may have a positive impact on productivity and may reduce fatigue One room has focused “beam” of directed sound to allow radiologist to enjoy music/ sounds without disturbing others We plan to test the effect of ambient noise on radiologists productivity and dictation
    • Reading Room Furniture including Tables, Chairs, etc.
    • Seating
    • Workstation Design, Ambient Conditions, and Posture
    • Miscellaneous Features of New Room Scented candles to appeal to the sense of smell which is increasingly recognized by retail stores and hotels and others as being important to promote calm and pleasant feelings
    • Security Biometric room entry option or room card or key fob controller
    • Room 5 Will Serve as Meditation/Hypnotherapy Room
    • Personalized Spaces Although radiologist workstations are shared would like to personalize the space (digital photographs in display), light and furniture settings customized for user, dashboard on PC optimized for user preferences (e.g. stock market ticker, child care web cam, etc.)
