Smart Reporting Advances Medical Reporting with LLM Technology from AWS

Smart Reporting is addressing the challenges of rapidly evolving medical knowledge and increasing workloads in healthcare with a pioneering solution. They have integrated large language model (LLM) technology into their SmartReports software, harnessing the AI power of Amazon Bedrock. This development is set to revolutionise the reporting process in healthcare, aiming to improve patient outcomes. A preview of this groundbreaking solution will be featured at RSNA in Chicago, with its release in the US market expected in the first half of 2024.

Radiology professionals face the challenges of inconsistent manual reports and unstructured data that hinder effective analysis and treatment planning. Through the integration with Amazon Bedrock, SmartReports will enhance radiology reporting by offering:

  • A considerable reduction in time and effort for report creation, facilitated by automatic impression suggestion.
  • Improved efficiency and quality in research and organisational tasks with structured, machine-readable data, enhancing clinical decision-making data quality by 60% and report accuracy and detail by 150%. [1, 2] Studies have indicated that structured reporting in pathology can reduce patient mortality by 4.3% [3]. These advanced features will be seamlessly integrated into Smart Reporting’s product range, allowing US customers to utilise AI assistance in their SmartReports from 2024.

Prof. Wieland Sommer, founder and CEO of Smart Reporting, commented: “We are always looking for ways to make radiology reporting faster and more efficient. We have been open to technology and vendors and are working agnostically to broadly integrate LLMs into our software. By building on Amazon Bedrock, we are able to leverage their state-of-the-art AI technology to enhance our radiology reporting solution. With automated impression suggestion, we will provide our customers with faster, better, and smarter reports that ultimately benefit patients.”

Dr. Razvan Ionasec of Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL remarked, “Healthcare professionals can benefit from seamless and efficient AI-enhanced reporting experience, spend less time on documentation and focus more on delivery of person-centered healthcare with improved outcomes.” Dr. Dominik Nörenberg echoed these sentiments, saying, “Integrating cutting-edge AI into our reporting paradigm has been nothing short of revolutionary.”

The upcoming RSNA event in Chicago will feature demonstrations of the LLM-powered automated impression suggestion at both the Smart Reporting and AWS booths.
