E-Path Reporter

The Industry Leading Automated Cancer Reporting System for Hospitals and Laboratories

Pathology

E-Path’s Pathology Interpreter processes cytology reports, surgical pathology reports as well as autopsy and other historical examination reports. Since approximately 90% of cancers are histologically diagnosed, the Pathology Interpreter is the mainstay of automated cancer case finding.

CNS Imaging

Tumors of the brain are not usually histologically confirmed and are often under-reported. The CNS Imaging Interpreter processes reports of MRI and PET scans of the brain and CT scans of the head and categorizes the report. The CNS Imaging Interpreter is essential for identifying lesions among very large volumes of imaging reports.

Chest Imaging

Tumors occurring in the chest cavity or torso are sometimes not histologically confirmed. The Chest Imaging (CNS) Interpreter processes diagnostic imaging reports of the chest or torso and classifies them into into different categories. It can also identify the presence of nodules.

E-Path ensures hospitals and laboratories meet regulatory reporting requirements with high-quality, standardized data at a significantly reduced cost.

Improve Completeness

E-Path Reporter improves completeness of reporting in terms of data captured and in terms of the completeness of reported tumors. With E-Path Reporter, cancer registries can expect an increase in incident cancer reporting by as much as 20% over traditional case finding methods. The Cancer Data Forwarding Module (CDF) further ensures that addendum reports and special tests (e.g. molecular biomarkers) are also forwarded to registries to supplement the tumor record information. The ADT Enrichment Module combines data from admit-discharge-transfer systems with diagnostic reports to enrich patient & physician demographic information.

Improve Accuracy

Using natural language processing (NLP), E-Path Reporter’s artificial intelligence (A.I.) interpreters (see right) digest the content of electronic diagnostic reports to determine if a reportable cancer is present. The A.I. uses expert algorithms that achieve sensitivity and specificity scores exceeding human performance and removing human operator variability. AIM provides regular updates to the A.I. knowledge base to keep pace with evolving terminologies and cancer reporting rules.

Improve Timeliness

E-Path Reporter runs tirelessly in the background, integrated with your laboratory information management systems, analyzing and filtering diagnostic reports as these are released, with no human intervention. New cases of cancer are identified and reported in near real-time. Not only does this translate into significant time and labor savings, it ensures hospitals can meet legislated and accreditation reporting deadlines with confidence.

Enhance Patient Privacy

E-Path Reporter shields non-reportable medical information from disclosure. It incorporates the latest security and encryption controls, and includes HIPAA compliant disclosure tracking. In addition, E-Path Reporter includes our Incognito engine, which can de-identify medical reports in compliance with the HIPAA Safe-Harbor requirements.


Eliminate 80% of labor when compared to manual review
of pathology reports.

Reportable cancer cases and other selectable reports generally comprise about 10–15% of all pathology reports. Thus 85-90% of reports are not selectable and not required by the user. E-Path can accurately discriminate these reports.

(Ability to correctly identify selectable reports)

98.2%

(Ability to correctly exclude non-reportable reports)

Optional Add-Ons

E-Path Monitoring Console

The Monitoring Console provides submitting sites with important functions to assist in the management of an automated E-Path system. These functions include; process monitoring, pathology report review and HIPAA disclosure reporting. The E-Path Monitoring Console incorporates the functionality of AIM’s ISIS Registrar Coding Edition product. The E-Path Monitoring Console provides process reports on the operation of the E-Path system with summary information about reports.

E-Path Network Monitor

The Network Monitor keeps track of data processed by E-Path Reporter allowing operators to monitor reporting activity by sending institution, report type, and date-range. The browser-based interface allows registry personnel to quickly determine the status of the cancer reporting network by simply navigating to a web-page. Compatible with multiple Microsoft desktop and server operating systems. Requires an installation of E-Path Reporter and Microsoft Internet Information Server.
