Uncover your full potential – with teamplay
Connect, compare, collaborate.
Healthcare professionals, hospitals and institutions of higher learning come together in teamplay's rich cloud-based network to access the metrics from their own imaging fleet of imaging data. As a community, they connect and collaborate in a trusted environment with high data privacy and security standards to improve patient outcome and quality of care.
teamplay supports you to be compliant with “Council Directive 2013/59/EURATOM”
In February 2018, the new radiation protection guidelines will come into place and enforce you to monitor dose within your imaging fleet. The EURATOM Directive1 lays down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation teamplay helps operators comply with the EURATOM Directive.
One major topic of the European directive is justification of individual medical exposures. In special circumstances, the applied dose needs to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and documented to justify a specific individual exposure2.
Radiology departments need to provide evidence that they follow nationally defined reference levels for radiodiagnostic procedures. teamplay Dose helps by offering a clear overview of, and the opportunity to comment on, dose outliers. The departmental dashboard on the home screen of teamplay shows at a glance how many examinations exceeded national reference levels or institutional set values. Besides dose monitoring, optimization is also part of the new guidelines. With teamplay, detected dose outliers can be easily analyzed. If an incorrect scan protocol was used, the protocol parameters stored on the CT scanner can be accessed with teamplay Protocols7 and measures to optimize the scan protocol can be directly triggered. Objectivity in comparing radiation dose values is also key. teamplay automatically maps customized protocols with protocol names based on the Radlex playbook.
