Putting Your Enterprise Imaging Strategy in Place:

8 Tips for Selecting the Right Transformation Partner. As the healthcare industry moves toward a more personalized, value-based care model, choosing the right solution partner to obtain a truly transformational enterprise imaging strategy is paramount.



"The acquisition of Medicalis will allow us to offer health care providers a powerful solution to define, implement, monitor, and evolve their own standard of care for their diagnostic service line," Robert Taylor, head of digital services population health management, digital health services at Siemens, said in a statement.

The Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA), which is expected to become effective on January 1, 2018, will require health systems to check the appropriateness of certain advanced imaging exams.

Siemens believes that Medicalis’ clinical decision support solution will help providers achieve PAMA compliance, as well as evolve their standard of care based on evidence and direct health system experience.

Its imaging workflow management solution interprets the physician’s desktop and standardizes diagnostic pathways for high-impact disease states. Essentially, it prevents care gaps by ensuring the right specialist and tools are used.

Its referral management solution has appointment scheduling tools that allow patients to schedule exams within the health system’s network. That prevents existing patients from going to another health system.

"We are excited to support our customers with these innovative tools to remove the variability from key high-impact disease states, to create standardized diagnostic pathways which enhance outcomes, control costs, and when combined with intelligent referral management, improve the patient experience overall,” said Taylor.

To date, seven out of the 25 health systems from Massachusetts to California have implemented Medicalis’ solutions to improve their quality of care.

Last week Medicalis announced that Mercy, the fifth largest Catholic health system in the U.S., has completed its enterprise-wide deployment of its workflow solution in just under six months.
