Identifying Gaps in Lung Cancer Care
Lung Cancer is a leading cause of death, but common care gaps can lead to delayed diagnoses. Up to 80% of lung nodules can be missed on low-dose CT scans. Many are missed entirely as incidental findings.
Over the course of 8 months, using Ferrum’s AI monitoring technologies and peer review tools, Sutter Health identified discrepancies in pulmonary nodule documentation.
118 pulmonary nodules, that were clinically significant, were not documented during original radiology review. Flagging these care gaps prevented potential delays in lung cancer diagnosis and ensured patients were not lost to follow-up care.
