Our Peer Review Story

August 25, 2016

A Canadian Peer Review Pioneer:

For years Real Time Medical has placed diagnostic imaging peer review as a focus for innovation.  In November of 2009, Real Time used DiaShare for the first time to conduct a quality review in the Canadian province of New Brunswick when the De­partment of Health required a retrospective review of 26,829 studies across two health regions. Twenty-one independent radiologists, most of whom did not know each other, remotely reviewed the cases within only 60 days.


During the fall of 2010, DiaShare was used in a similar fashion for a Newfoundland retrospective review of 4,589 studies. Since then, the platform has also been used for two retrospective reviews in Ontario.

The application’s peer review capabilities have gained considerable improvements from being used for provincial QA reviews. The underlying methodologies, discrepancy schemas, fairness and consistency checks embodied in the application were enhanced to help ensure maximum objectivity and feedback accuracy to the radiologists involved.


Objective Feedback – In Time to Make a Difference To Patients


In 2009 RTM’s innovative DiaShare platform was selected for a first-of a-kind pilot in Canada, enabling proactive, pre-report finalization quality assurance and continuous quality improvement for radiologists city-wide across four Hamilton hospitals. The project was officially initiated in the fall of 2012 and the prospective peer review solution successfully deployed by the fall of 2013.

Same-Day Peer Review to Improve the Health of Children


After the successful Hamilton pilot, The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto selected Real Time Medical’s peer review solution. It is currently being used for the same-day review of released diagnostic reports.


Stay tuned for new Multi-ology peer review innovations to be announced soon.
