Guidelines for teleradiology practice: results of the Tyrolean teleradiology pilot project



Guidelines for teleradiology practice: results of the Tyrolean teleradiology pilot project



Journal of Telemedicine and Telecare 9(Suppl. 1): S48-S50



The Tyrolean telemedicine pilot project linked the University Clinic of Innsbruck and the district hospital in Reutte. Five medical specialties were investigated: teleradiology, telepathology, teledermatology, tele-ophthalmology and tele-oncology. A Tyrolean 'four-column model of quality management in telemedicine' was introduced to ensure a global view of the project and to avoid mistakes. In teleradiology, a 12-step workflow was developed, which described the medical responsibilities at each stage. We found that the defined teleradiology workflow and the technical equipment for data security and data exchange worked without problems in over 79% of a total of 424 cases. To ensure continuous quality assurance, the whole teleradiology workflow was ISO 9001:2000 certified.
