As technology has occasioned these errors (There was a time when Mark would
pick up the phone and tell me my patient had an abnormality on CT.) so can
it be programmed to help.
*On any study mandating interpretation (Radiology and pathology come to
mind, although there are many others) there is to be a mandatory field:
"this study requires/does not require followup". This will activate a
tickler cascade that is not stopped until action is taken.
Coding this would be a minor undertaking.
So why does it not exist?
