End-users of BoneStation are physicians who regularly review DXA BMD scans and need to generate
reports efficiently. Typical departments or services include: radiology, endocrinology, rheumatology,
women's health, bone health and osteoporosis centers, orthopedics, geriatrics. The DXA technologists
interact with BoneStation when entering patient questionnaire and sending DXA scans from the scanner
The BoneStation software enables Bone Densitometry practices to create BMD reports efficiently, flexibly, and effectively.
Bone density scans are transmitted from a DXA machine to BoneStation, where they appear in BoneStation’s web application. Patient history is captured in an electronic questionnaire.
Workflow is streamlined and traceable. At any time, the DXA technologist or physician can easily find out the status of an exam (ready to review, on hold, reviewed, etc.). Here is a screenshot of the workflow states in BoneStation. The first column is the patient; second column shows the scans, and the third column is the exam status.
The physician is offered calculation results and suggestions based on bone densitometry standards, yet he/she can modify or add personal notes. The default rules for the DXA report a re based on ISCD and IOF standards. Macros are available for frequently used patient recommendations. Practitioners have access to the patients' electronic questionnaire. Vertebral Fracture Assessment and FRAX™ score are available.
There is no need to manually reenter the data (such as T-score, Z-score, BMD, BMC), nor to dictate, or transcribe. This saves time and eliminates potential errors in the DXA report.
No application to be loaded on physician’s workstation. Robust storage. Integration with RIS, EMR, HIS, PACS. Easy interface to DXA scanner.
Being web-based, it allows physicians to review bone density scans from any Internet-enabled device. Also, the centralized database structure enables subsequent queries to be made for clinical or research projects.
