GE Launches Evidence-Based Decision Support Tools

July 15, 2009 - GE Healthcare partnered with Medicalis, a provider of clinical decision support for diagnostic imaging (CDS-DI), to help drive quality healthcare and reduce unnecessary imaging procedures and costs.

The alignment, which will integrate Medicalis’ CDS-DI solution with GE’s Centricity Imaging IT and electronic medical records (EMR) products, will seek to deliver decision support at the physician office’s point of order (EMR) or the radiology provider’s point of service (Imaging IT).

CDS-DI uses industry best practice knowledge designed to help physicians enhance the quality of patient care by ordering the right imaging study the first time. Medicalis’ decision support module is based on the clinical guidelines of the American College of Radiology, American College of Cardiology, American College of Physicians, and the American Society of Spine Radiologists with relevant in-context advice as a provider first places the imaging study order. Patients may benefit by avoiding unhelpful imaging studies, thereby reducing unnecessary radiation exposure and out-of-pocket healthcare expense.

The initiative fits within GE’s healthymagination campaign to reduce costs, improve quality and expand access for millions of people.
