Built by an ICANL Technical Director for ICANL Technical Directors:
Are you an ICANL Technical Director?
If you are, do you know for certain that every Nuclear Cardiology Report your lab generates is 100% ICANL Compliant?
Have you been given the proper tool for that job?
If the answer is no, you’ve been placed squarely in a pickle, and you probably don’t much like it.
Because you’re most likely the the one who’s responsible for navigating ICANL audits & re-applications (every 1.5 years).
And of course, ICANL scrutinizes our reports more than anything else.
You know how stressful, awkward & risky ICANL scrutiny can be when your reports don’t meticulously adhere to the Standards- it’s not fun & it’s not cool.
Why I Built the Template Reporting System:
My expensive-recurring-fee Nuclear Cardiology Reporting Software was taken from me in 2010 when SPECT MPI reimbursement was slashed by 30%.
So out of necessity, I began making my own Nuclear Cardiology Report templates using MS Word.
I soon discovered it was possible to make those templates better, easier & less expensive than the expensive software we had been paying for.
It turns out that MS Word can serve as the perfect foundation for automated report creation. (With many thousands of hours of design, coding, testing & revisions- but that’s another story.)
The first step was a meticulous study & cataloging of the ASNC Reporting Guidelines, the ICANL & ACR Standards & the 2008 Key Data Elements and Definitions for Cardiac Imaging.
On that foundation, I built a reporting solution that meticulously adheres to the letter of every standard.
For added certainty, Comprehensive Error-Checking & Corrective Messaging Algorithms was implemented, notifying users of the slightest deviation from the the Standards & giving explicit instructions on exactly how to remedy accreditation issues, errors, omissions or logical inconsistencies.
It even gives you a “SUCCESS” message when your report is accreditation compliant.
My physicians liked using my Templates so much (they’re so fast & simple & flexible) & the reports are so clear & concise, that they encouraged me to commercialize it.
The folks at ICANL assured me there are plenty of Labs out there that still desperately need an affordable method of creating high quality, compliant reports. (You’re not alone.)
So I made it my mission to make sure that every ICANL accredited lab (no matter how small) could easily afford to quickly & easily create perfect ICANL-compliant final reports.
The End Result:
Now, after 7 years of daily testing & improvements, I believe that the Template Reporting System is the easiest, fastest & most affordable way of creating ICANL Compliant Nuclear Cardiology Reports.
What sets it apart from competitors are sophisticated ICANL Error-Checking & Corrective Messaging algorithms:
- It is nearly impossible to create a report with errors, omissions or ICANL compliance problems.
Volume based pricing makes it easily affordable for any lab (even if you only use a mobile lab 1x / week!).
Cardiologists love the simple & intuitive user interface, the speed (25 seconds for normal images), and the flexibility it gives multiple Interpreting MDs to each say things their own way (while remaining ICANL compliant).
Reports are 100% error-checked & complete (& electronically signed) as soon as the Physician interprets the images.
They also love the professional appearance & clarity of the reports:
- Reports are perfect: easy to quickly digest & zero spelling, grammatical, punctuation, spacing or alignment errors.
- They make your lab look great to anybody who sees them (such as other physicians referring their patients to you).
Cardiologists also love the price.
There’s no IT burden; no applications or databases to install & maintain; everything happens inside Word. Then save as PDF & upload/scan to any EHR.

"Goes above & beyond to provide excellent service"
Working with Jim is an absolute pleasure as he is extremely professional and dedicated, and goes well above and beyond to provide excellent service.
His process includes carefully listening to his clients, and generative discussions in which multiple different options are discussed, to help craft a solution that works well in your laboratory.
He was also available for questions, and special customization which further augmented our reporting software.
We have now fully implemented the Template Reporting System, are very proud of our final reports & have achieved IAC Nuclear Accreditation thanks in part to Jim’s hard work.”
Mark C. Goldberg, MD FACC
"Fast and super-easy to use once you've done about 7 reports"
It's fast and super-easy to use after you’ve read about 7 studies.
Quickly and easily produces complete, concise, well-organized and nice-looking reports that are free from errors. Very short learning curve. Single-page reports are quickly digestible and can’t get separated by referring providers’ offices.
Jeffrey Harris, Lead Technical Analyst
"A very well written & supported application"
... a very well written & supported application. Easy, clear, concise and correctly communicated. We are extremely pleased with the software; and would recommend it to anybody looking for an affordable solution.
Jim is one of a kind & very passionate about wanting to help others produce top notch documentation.
Chris Gilles, MD ABNM
"Very helpful addition to our lab"
The Template Reporting System is a very helpful addition to our lab.
It is intuitive to use; report creation is quick, and the final report looks nice.
I would recommend the software to any size physician group reading Nuclear Cardiology studies to standardize the final report, which is the most important part of a myocardial perfusion study.
Jana Boerger, CNMT RT(N)
