Healthy Interactions and MedCurrent Launch Joint Clinical Decision Support Platform

CDS system integrates into EHR, taps evidence-based guidelines for chronic conditions and provides real-time, individualized care plans

June 7, 2016 — Healthy Interactions and MedCurrent recently introduced a first-of-its-kind clinical decision support (CDS) platform that merges evidence-based guidelines with clinical workflows at the point of care designed specifically to manage chronic care conditions.

Healthy Interactions currently offers a diabetes patient education program. MedCurrent offers a comprehensive radiology CDS system with embedded appropriateness criteria.

In recent years, Healthy Interactions has expanded beyond diabetes to address co-morbidities and other chronic conditions such as asthma, obesity, cancers and psychiatric illness, and MedCurrent has integrated rule sets from disciplines beyond radiology, such as cardiology, oncology, lab and other clinical areas. 

With a single keypad click, the provider sees the evidence-based care path and initiates the system-defined care plan including e-prescriptions, referrals to specialists, and initiation of education programs perfectly matched to the patient’s transition of care. With another click, the patient is connected to the system’s digital health platform, allowing for engagement and interaction with a care coordinator, educator or coach as well as procurement of sensor-derived data such as blood pressure or weight. The system also enables point-of-care scheduling for recommended tests and procedures.

Healthy Interactions CEO and Co-Founder Paul Lasiuk said ordering behavior can be monitored in real time for individuals or groups of practitioners, giving health systems actionable data to drive clinical and operational change. He added that the rules engine is complemented by a visually intuitive rule-authoring studio allowing users to create, customize and manage clinical content based upon varying organizational or geographic needs.
