ProCare is using machine learning to check the quality of referrals for MRI scans being made by northern region GPs under a new national ACC programme.
The service allows GPs who have received MRI training to directly refer patients for a scan if they have knee, lumbar, or upper spine injures, rather than having to refer them to a specialist to make that decision.
The GPMRI programme was piloted with ProCare and Mercy Radiology from 2017 and has now been expanded nationwide with GPs in the upper North Island using ProCare’s inhouse built electronical referral platform Profusion.
