 9/7/17 - Matrix Analytics Announces Expansion of Screening and Pulmonary Incidentaloma Software

DENVER, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Matrix Analytics announced today that Community Hospital in Grand Junction, Colorado, will expand to the fully integrated LungDirect Enterprise software solution. LungDirect Enterprise integrates within hospital IT infrastructure to automate identification and registration of patients with a pulmonary incidentaloma, or patients participating in a lung cancer screening program. Automating the identification process reduces patient leakage and increases hospital employee workflow efficiencies.

Brent Woodson, DO, from Advanced Pulmonary and Critical Care of the Grand Valley, part of Community Hospital, says, "At Community, we are looking forward to the automation of LungDirect Enterprise and more early stage detection of lung cancer, which will save lives. The integration will expand upon our lung cancer program that we started in 2014."

LungDirect, a product of Matrix Analytics and the leader in Lung Cancer and Pulmonary Incidentaloma management, is a proprietary software suite developed by an Interventional Pulmonologist frustrated with the disjointed care pulmonary nodule patients often receive. Electronic Medical Record systems are not equipped to manage nodule care coordination, so Dr. Alzubaidi was left to use spreadsheets and other outdated mechanisms to manage his nodule clinic patients. He decided there had to be a better way. LungDirect offers an innovative way for providers to manage both lung cancer screening patients and other at-risk pulmonary nodule patients.

About Matrix Analytics: Matrix Analytics is a collection of clinical and business experts aligned in the belief that conquering illness and disease requires data, creativity, and an unrelenting focus on Always Learning. First in our sights: Lung Cancer. Despite recent clinical advancements and available technology, an integrated solution to drive the consistent and efficient detection, diagnosis, and treatment of pulmonary nodules and lung cancer does not exist. LungDirect is the first line of defense in the fight. LungDirect registers incidental pulmonary nodules and screening patients to a dashboard and makes a user aware of these patients so they can be followed and treated according to standard clinical care guidelines. Pulmonary nodule management has never been easier!
