How INFINITT MDT streamlines workflow for your multidisciplinary teams

Emerging benefits of multidisciplinary care

An increasing number of hospitals are beginning to adopt multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach to healthcare. It’s because this patient-centric approach has proven to be effective in improving the survival rate of patients with diseases too complex to be treated by any single medical specialty. For example, according to the Samsung Medical Center’s cohort study of HCC patients*, the five-year survival rate was 21.8% higher for patients who received multidisciplinary care compared to those who didn’t.

Patients are showing growing interests in multidisciplinary care as it enables them to get more engaged in their own treatment process. Without having to make separate visits to each medical department, they can get a comprehensive summary of medical opinions and treatment plans from a team of specialists.

Reimbursement policies are on the way as well. For example, since 2015, tertiary general hospitals in Korea have been eligible to receive MDT reimbursements up to five times for each patient. This is applicable for treating patients with severe conditions such as cancer, cerebral hemorrhage, cardiovascular diseases, chronic renal failure, hemophilia, tuberculosis and more. In addition, the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare has announced an approx. 30% increase in MDT reimbursements to facilitate the practice of MDT care even more. The increased rate is applied to eligible multidisciplinary teams as of October 2020.

*Sinn DH, Choi G-S, Park HC, Kim JM, Kim H, Song KD, et al. (2019) Multidisciplinary approach is associated with improved survival of hepatocellular carcinoma patients. PLoS ONE 14(1): e0210730. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0210730

 

Limitations of the current MDT workflow

Despite the growing interests in multidisciplinary care from the medical community, patients and the government, there are still some practical limitations to overcome.

① Widely dispersed patient data

The key to multidisciplinary approach lies in the consolidation of data. All patient data must be brought together before the members of MDT can carry out organic discussions and combine their multilateral expertise to provide the optimal treatment for the patient. However, this is difficult to achieve in the first place because in most hospitals patient data is widely dispersed throughout various medical departments.

 Lack of MDT workflow support

The process of preparing for and carrying out multidisciplinary care is quite complicated, being that it requires various specialists from multiple departments to take part. And since each department uses its own data management system, each of the MDT members has to collect and organize his/her own set of patient data prior to each MDT meeting. While radiologists can directly open up patient images using PACS, they still need to go through high-volume CT/MRI exams image by image prior to the meeting. Others usually prepare their materials in PowerPoint format. And they would have to open up and discuss over each file during the meeting. This is why a dedicated workflow support system is needed to minimize the members’ work load and streamline the complex MDT workflow.

 

A dedicated tool for multidisciplinary teams

INFINITT MDT is a dedicated MDT workflow management solution. It brings together data created throughout different departments with the patient at the center, and makes the consolidated data available for application in the patient’s diagnosis and treatment.

 

 

Making it easier to take part in MDT care

All participating physicians can check all related patient records from EHR and any upcoming MDT meeting schedules directly on INFINITT MDT. Plus, they can easily upload any meeting materials to INFINITT MDT from departmental solutions like INFINITT PACS or INFNITT Digital Pathology Solution with a click of a button. The images are automatically saved in the same layout they were being reviewed. Thus, participating physicians no longer have to put in a lot of resources into preparing materials for MDT discussions.

 

Enhancing the efficiency of MDT discussions

On the day of MDT meeting, the participants can simply open up and discuss over a pre-uploaded set of patient data on INFINITT MDT. While this enables physicians to dive right into in-depth analysis of patient conditions from multilateral perspectives, it also helps patients to better understand their results and treatment options.

 

MDT as a part of enterprise imaging

Multidisciplinary care is one of the many possible examples of how you can make use of the patient data integrated and managed through enterprise imaging. In other words, it’s a good place to start your own enterprise imaging strategy.
