HI-IQ Data Gets More Powerful With the Addition of Peer Benchmarking Reporting

September 16, 2011 – Interventional radiology (IR) software maker HI-IQ announced the launch of Peer Benchmarking reports for the IR community. HI-IQ subscribers can leverage the power of data collected by the HI-IQ user community across the United States through the national HI-IQ Peer Benchmarking Database.

“The HI-IQ Peer Benchmarking database provides data insights that will help interventional radiologists grow and evolve their practice,” said Emily DeMerchant, director for HI-IQ. “The aggregated data provides the ability for IR practices to compare their performance to their peers.”

“The Peer Benchmarking database will greatly benefit the Society of Interventional Radiology [SIR] and its members,” said DeMerchant. As recently reported in SIR Today, “Aggregating data from IR procedures and mining the information for insights is invaluable. With the introduction of its Peer Benchmarking Database, HI-IQ offers unprecedented opportunities for members and the society.”

The Peer Benchmarking Database provides actual operational and clinical data from practices across the country that can be used to improve services, helping to detect service line growth trends and see new services as they develop. This could assist SIR in developing the training needed and providing the clinical data necessary to support the growth of IR practice.                 

For IR practitioners, HI-IQ’s Peer Benchmarking reports offer comparative data to illustrate local performance versus national benchmarks.

Peer Benchmarking was launched in March at SIR’s 36th Annual Scientific Meeting in Chicago. Four reports are available to participating HI-IQ subscribers. The reports cover top 10 services by practice, top 10 services overall, fluoroscopy dosage analysis and service volume trends.

Over 85,000 encounters were aggregated to generate these reports. Additional reports are planned for the future.
