MedCurrent announces partnership with CMS Imaging to support more appropriate radiology orders and meet regulatory requirements
TORONTO (PRWEB) JULY 22, 2019
MedCurrent Corporation, a leader in radiology clinical decision support (CDS) solutions, today announced a partnership with CMS Imaging Inc., a premier healthcare solutions provider based out of South Carolina specializing in the sales and service of diagnostic medical imaging equipment. This partnership will see CMS Imaging distribute MedCurrent’s OrderWise® clinical decision support platform as part of its comprehensive catalogue of health informatics solutions.
Starting January 1, 2020, ordering professionals across the US will be required to consult CDS when ordering advanced diagnostic imaging (MR, CT, NM, PET) for Medicare outpatients as initially set forth in the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA, 2014). To meet the requirements of this mandate, only qualified CDS mechanisms (CDSMs) and Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) developed by qualified provider-led entities (qPLEs) may be used.
Fully qualified as a CDSM by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, MedCurrent’s OrderWise guides ordering providers through clinical decision pathways to help them seamlessly order the right diagnostic imaging tests for their patients. In the U.S., OrderWise incorporates diagnostic imaging guidelines from Intermountain Healthcare (IH), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Foundation—all qualified provider-led entities.
“This partnership means that CMS Imaging customers now have access to a qualified clinical decision support solution that enables more appropriate care while meeting the regulatory requirements”, said John Adziovsky, CEO of MedCurrent. “We’re very excited to be working with CMS Imaging as their proven track record in the medical imaging space and dedication to customer service is a key driver to ensuring that customers are successful in their CDS journey.”
“At CMS Imaging we pride ourselves on providing our customers with comprehensive and best-in-class solutions. OrderWise by MedCurrent provides our physicians with an organized and efficient solution to improve the quality of care of their patients by ordering the correct imaging procedures,” said Tom Pompeii, Vice President of Sales at CMS Imaging.
