Aware helps automate delivery of radiation dose information

Nov 27, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE) has announced the integration of Aware's AccuRad REM Server with Nuance's market-leading PowerScribe 360 | Reporting platform.

The integration enables radiologists to automatically incorporate radiation exposure estimate information into patient radiology reports, and facilitates compliance with SB 1237, California's mandate for inclusion of dose information in patient records. It also provides analysis tools that can be used to help reduce risks associated with radiological exams. Aware will demonstrate AccuRad REM Server in booth A3341 at RSNA 2012, taking place November 25 to 30 in Chicago. Nuance will demonstrate the integration from 10:30am-12pm on Tuesday, November 27 in booth A6217.

AccuRad REM Server is a centralized software application that runs on a healthcare provider's network and receives dose data from radiological equipment, including CT scanners and fluoroscopy equipment. It can then distribute the data in standard-compliant form to radiology reporting systems, PACS, and external data registries. It also provides advanced reporting functions through a browser-based user interface that clinicians can use to perform statistical analysis on the data.

AccuRad REM Server is designed to enable healthcare providers to collect radiation exposure data based on the IHE's Radiation Exposure Monitoring Integration Profile, generate customized dosage estimation reports for comparison to other results, and then upload the data to the American College of Radiology Dose Index Registry . The reports can be used to help identify opportunities for lowering unnecessary radiation exposure.

Aware is a leading software and technology supplier for the biometrics, telecommunications, and healthcare industries. Aware's biometrics software products and services are provided to solution vendors and system integrators for use by government agencies towards applications including border management, secure credentials, law enforcement, and national defense.
