ADVANCED VISUALIZATION

3DR Post-Processing
3DR Labs, LLC is the largest, most respected 3D medical post-processing laboratory in the nation. Since its founding in 2005, 3DR has provided post-processing services to hundreds of hospital Imaging departments, stand-alone imaging centers and radiology practices enabling them to obtain expert processing of their medical imaging cases within hours or even minutes for emergencies. Unrivaled industry expertise enables 3DR to form a truly collaborative relationship with hospitals and imaging centers that need solutions beyond just scanning.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Solutions
In addition to 3D post-processing services, 3DR Labs offers unique AI solutions to further expand the capabilities of your Imaging department. These include liver iron quantification, regional lung function analysis, and quantitative brain analysis for several diseases, including: MS plaque load in a numerical score, dementia evaluation through tracking brain atrophy, as well as cost-neutral evaluation of patients with traumatic brain injury or epilepsy. No infrastructure build or platform is needed to engage these resources.

OPERATIONS OPTIMIZATION

Workflow
Whether you want to engage in smart capacity planning or improve operational efficiency, a detailed workflow analysis is essential. At Accumen, we know that every modality is different, and we take that variation into account. We analyze the ebb and flow of each modality to maximize capacity, streamline operations, and decrease waste.

Patient Access
Providing easy, efficient imaging access for patients is considerably more complex than many realize. Accumen looks at every step in the process; evaluating each touchpoint, uncovering moments of friction, and offering in-depth recommendations. We consider patient satisfaction along with geographic, demographic, and population health-related patterns affecting physician referrals and leakage.

Labor Model
Accumen will help you streamline your individual modality labor models by analyzing volume trends and hours of operation against your specific workload. Our team will partner with you to implement efficient scheduling processes and workflows to optimally utilize imaging resources to increase capacity.

Full Department Transformation
Integrating all initiatives in the services above (workflow, patient access, and labor) to offer the Imaging department across any size hospital or health system the opportunity to reach, and sustain, optimized performance levels. This program is offered as a shared services partnership model.
