xWave Technologies is on a mission to save patient lives by ensuring that they get the best test first.
xWave Technologies was founded by a leading group of radiologists who wanted to create intelligent solutions for the problems they were facing in their day-to-day work. Referring patients for medical imaging can be a complex process. xWave Technologies strives to provide an innovative platform that enables the best possible radiology referrals.
xWave can either integrate their clinical decision support system directly into existing ordering systems or can deliver it through their proprietary smart radiology referral system, xRefer. xRefer is a cloud-based smart radiology referral platform (available on web, Android and iOS apps) that uses market-leading guidelines from the European Society of Radiology to support clinicians at the point of care to ensure they are referring patients to the most appropriate test first.
The Federal Drug Administration estimates that up to 50% of radiology scans are unnecessary and do not benefit the patients whom they are performed on. This can result in poor patient outcomes – delayed diagnoses, missed diagnoses, unnecessary radiation exposure.
It also costs health systems huge sums of money. In the US alone, approximately $7bn-12bn is spent each year on unnecessary radiology scans.
The smart radiology referral platform, xRefer, can be used by all clinicians who refer patients to radiology procedures. As a cloud-based platform with FHIR interoperability, xRefer can connect referrers and radiology teams within hospitals (intra-hospital), across different hospitals and imaging centres (inter-hospital), and it also connects GPs to hospitals.
xRefer delivers significant benefits across the entire spectrum of healthcare including:
While digitised radiology guidelines exist, xRefer has taken those guidelines and made them an integrated part of the referring workflow, increasing their usability and delivering radiology expertise to the referrer at the point of care. xRefer is the only mobile-first platform with integrated guidelines and is also the only platform to carry guidelines from both the European Society of Radiology and the Royal College of Radiologists.
