The Prairie Rapid Read Network is your A secure, web-based solution for the reliable and rapid interpretation of your echo cardiograms, echo and nuclear stress tests and vascular ultrasound procedures. Each year over 10,000 tests are sent from 36 locations.
Exams and files are seamlessly transferred to our secure server. The transfer can include images, clips, demographic information, measurements, notes and other relevant digital data.
A team of Prairie Cardiovascular specialists can immediately view and interpret tests from any Prairie Heart location in Illinois.
With auto-populating review worksheets, reports can easily be prepared, reviewed and completed in a matter of minutes.
Once interpreted, reports are automatically distributed to designated recipients via email, fax or PDF transfer.
Breaking away from constraints
The Prairie Rapid Read Network links directly to your Dicom-compatible echo/nuclear equipment and creates a pathway to directly upload studies to a Prairie cardiologist immediately after testing. The study can then be interpreted by a Prairie Cardiologist and an interpretation sent to you within 48 hours or less (M-F).
Breaking away from the constraints of closed-end, high cost, local network PACS, Prairie Rapid Read offers a no-cost, secure and flexible system. The Prairie Rapid Read service integrates effortlessly into any existing workflow and optimizes your efficiency.
Accreditation and Reimbursement
The Rapid Read Lab and Technologies are ICAEL accredited. Medicare and other payers appear to be moving toward a requirement of accreditation of lab and/or sonographer in order to be eligible for reimbursement.
