TORONTO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MedCurrent Corporation, a leading provider of clinical decision support systems, today announced the debut of OrderRight™ 3.0 at the Radiological Society of North America’s Annual Meeting (RSNA), December 1 - 5, 2013 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. MedCurrent will exhibit in the South Hall, booth # 3106.
MedCurrent’s OrderRight radiology decision support solution empowers primary care and specialty physicians to have the information they need at the time radiologic tests are ordered so that the most appropriate study is ordered. OrderRight provides optimal workflow for the ordering clinician. It helps organizations improve patient care planning and treatment, reduce inappropriate utilization, and mitigate costs, powered with automated data analytics that provides insight into group, clinic, and individual physician patterns. OrderRight’s ACRselect™ appropriateness criteria and its Rule Authoring Studio™ empower clinicians with the ideal combination of clinical best practices and local rule set control. To assist organizational and clinical leaders, OrderRight provides complete utilization analytics and reporting capabilities.
The solution eliminates many of the costs associated with unnecessary denials and appeals, and enhances payer-provider relationships. For radiologists, OrderRight helps practices optimize reimbursement, reduce unnecessary radiation exposure for their patients, and ensure the most accurate diagnoses.
“System-wide adoption of clinical decision support is highly dependent upon ordering physician workflow and the ability to utilize the clinical information already in the EMR,” said radiologist Steve Herman, MD, Chief Medical Officer. “Visitors to MedCurrent’s RSNA booth will see the ease with which ordering physicians use the system within an EMR. In seconds, the ordering physician will see the patient-specific recommended options along with embedded clinical rationale. It allows physicians to manage radiology costs by making the best clinical decisions, eliminating unnecessary or inappropriate studies.
The system utilizes the ACR Select™ appropriateness criteria in its baseline rule set, and the system supports rule set control with its patent-pending Rule Authoring Studio™. This feature provides administrative tools that allow each customer organization to modify and customize the appropriateness rules to meet their local needs and standards of practice. With this feature, new rules and criteria can easily be created and clinically tested for consideration before being added into their system’s rule set.
Booth visitors can also explore OrderRight Data Analytics™, a module that provides a view of ordering behaviors and rule compliance from various macro and micro levels. This QA monitoring system enhances the organization’s ability to ensure clinically-appropriate ordering, and support appropriate medical review and action.
MedCurrent will provide live demos at RSNA in booth 3106.
