MRCAC was looking for a secure, HIPAA-compliant technology solution to serve as the collaboration and peer review platform to support its anonymous expert review process, as well as to collect data to be used for ongoing training, education, and quality assurance. Regular case review and expert review leads to increased diagnostic accuracy and quality of examinations where misclassification can have grave consequences for children and families. MRCAC needed a solution that could easily support the remote peer review needs of multiple geographically dispersed institutions, as well as to collect data to be used for ongoing training, education and quality assurance. Clinicians who participated in case review and quality assurance programs powered by VisualStrata improved their diagnostic accuracy over time by decreasing the incidence of misclassifications, avoiding false positives and improving overall case interpretation. Eighty two percent of participating medical providers indicated that the program has increased their diagnostic skill base.
“XIFIN has allowed us to bridge the gap between rural providers and national experts in the field by ensuring quality care for all children impacted by abuse,” stated, Kori Stephens, MPH, MRCAC Project Director. “Many of our providers rely heavily on this system, and have expressed gratitude for the honest and important feedback they’ve received to improve their practice. Having an easy, secure, on-line platform makes this best practice much more accessible to those who would otherwise be at a loss.”
