West Georgia Health System: Clinical Quality Case Study
Out of a current annual volume of approximately 66,000 reads, WGHS radiologists see over 3,000 mammography reads per year. A major indicator of clinical quality in imaging, mammography recall rates are increasingly being used to evaluate effectiveness. Prior to partnering with ApolloMD, WGHS struggled with an excessively high recall rate of 18%, eight percentage points higher than ACR’s benchmark of 10%.
Incentivized to provide top-quality and efficient care, ApolloMD physicians have managed to decrease this rate to only 4%, leading to significant cost savings topatients and improved patient satisfaction thanks to a decrease in unnecessary, anxiety-causing tests.
