You may be asking "how does this work?" How could I have an Anorectal Manometry (ARM) test performed in my office interpreted and returned to me? The process is very simple. We typically install a small piece of proprietary software on the computer that connects to your ARM equipment. This software guides your nurse/technician through the ARM test using our best practice procedure. It then collects all of the ARM data (e.g. rest pressure, squeeze pressure, EMG), encrypts it, and transmit it to our secure server. Once on our server it enters a work queue for one of our many expert gastroenterologist or gastrointestinal surgeon interpreters. The interpreter interprets your ARM data using our advanced ARMAnalysis software. This software helps the interpreter fully review the anorectal manometry data and create a very thorough interpretation report. Once completed, the report is returned to you via our web portal, so you may access from anywhere.
It is that simple. We interpret ARM tests for dozens of clinics and hospitals across the U.S. using this approach and technology.
Our software enables the efficient collection of the anorectal manometry (ARM) data from your ARM equipment. It interfaces directly with the ARM equipment and pulls the resulting data and posts it via the internet to our secure server for interpretation. It also guides the nurse/tech through the proper testing protocol so the data is clean and consistent. Collecting the ARM data using our software makes the interpretation process much more robust and enables the creation of quality and consistent findings. It also reduces the work your staff has to do by automatically moving the data to our secure server.
Proper anorectal manometry (ARM) interpretation requires not only substantial formal training, but also applied clinical interpretation of hundreds of actual ARM tests. The gastroenterologist or gastrointestinal surgeons that will perform your interpretation are board certified in the U.S. and interpret hundreds of ARM tests per year, allowing them to fully hone their skills and keep them sharp. Additionally, you will be given direct access to our interpreters if you have questions about any interpretation reports provided to you.
As part of the interpretation, you will receive a fully documented anorectal manometry (ARM) test report that includes a sound diagnosis, treatment options based on the professional diagnosis and the best available clinical data, and a full summary report in electronic (PDF) format. These treatment options will include both non-surgical and surgical treatment options. The summary report will also include the results of a thorough patient questionnaire, key ARM and EMG measurements, procedure notes, all measurement tracings, and much more. The summary report can then flow directly into your EMR system or be printed out. Click on the [Get a Sample Report] button above to get a sample report.
