Montreal, Canada – November 7, 2017 – Intelerad Medical Systems™, a leader in enterprise workflow solutions, today announced a partnership that will see MedCurrent's OrderWise™ clinical decision support platform (CDS) platform integrated into Intelerad's enhanced clinical portal, InteleConnect® EV.
"At Intelerad, our goal is to provide best-of-breed solutions, but with the simplicity of a single-vendor relationship," said Christian Bazinet, Chief Operating Officer, Intelerad. "By partnering with MedCurrent, our clients will gain robust clinical decision support to enhance ordering practices and improve patient care while fulfilling industry requirements."
Designed to streamline ordering workflow, MedCurrent's OrderWise™ platform assesses radiology orders and provides real-time recommendations based on appropriate use criteria (AUC) and other clinical guidelines. In addition to fulfilling MIPS requirements in the US, OrderWise™ also satisfies AUC Program requirements for ordering advanced diagnostic imaging services for Medicare outpatients. The OrderWise™ framework is designed to integrate clinical content from any source or clinical specialty, including AUC from qualified provider-led entities (qPLEs) such as Intermountain Healthcare, National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the American College of Cardiology. In the international healthcare market, MedCurrent delivers the evidence-based iRefer referral guidelines from the Royal College of Radiologists (UK) through OrderWise™.

"MedCurrent provides clinical decision support solutions that focus on improved clinical and operational outcomes with goals to improve patient care and drive workflow efficiencies," said John Adziovsky, Chief Executive Officer, MedCurrent. "Known for their strengths in workflow solutions, partnering with Intelerad enables clients to provide more appropriate care, enhance their radiology value chain and meet regulatory requirements."
Through Intelerad's MedCurrent integration, referring physicians both in North America and internationally will be able to access OrderWise™ directly within InteleConnect® EV's interface. Once the physician locates their patient, they will be able to easily launch OrderWise™ with a single click. From there, OrderWise™ will analyze the clinical scenario and provide evidence-based recommendations on ordering appropriateness. The resulting order will be sent to Intelerad's RIS offering, or any other third-party RIS application, to complete the end-to-end workflow.
