Review and analysis of attending edits of radiology trainee reports
ReportDiff is a system designed to provide automated feedback for resident dictated reports. The system consists of several components:
- A retrieval script queries the Powerscribe server and retrieves trainee-signed preliminary reports every few minutes. It also periodically queries the server for final versions of cached preliminary reports. It computes the edit differences between preliminary and final reports.
- A web service presents the reports and edit scores generated by the retriever.
- R scripts are used to analyze aggregate report data.
This project was presented at the RSNA 2015 Annual Meeting:
Cheng PM, Romero M, Marx M. ReportDiff: Analytics and Feedback for Resident Dictated Reports. 101st Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Dec. 2015. (Winner of Magna Cum Laude Award).
See the GitHub repositories for source code of the ReportDiff data retrieval and analytics scripts and of the ReportDiff web service.
