Sage HMS Partners With Epic Imaging To Implement RadWise Clinical Decision Support

September 24, 2012 —Sage Health Management Solutions Inc. (Sage HMS), an electronic-based healthcare services company, recently announced its agreement with Epic Imaging, an outpatient diagnostic imaging center in Portland, Ore., to implement its RadWise Clinical Decision Support (CDS) service.

RadWise provides evidence-based clinical decision support for effective value management of diagnostic imaging. It guides clinicians to the most appropriate imaging decision based upon each patient’s symptoms, documents the diagnosis and procedures, and records the current imaging recommendation regardless of what was ordered. RadWise CDS can help organizations improve quality by determining the most appropriate imaging, eliminating unnecessary or redundant tests, monitoring radiation exposure and documenting outcomes for further evaluation.

"We pride ourselves on providing the most technologically advanced system improvements in our industry,” said John Griffith, chief information officer and director of operations at Epic. “Using RadWise will allow our radiologists to document the appropriate imaging for patients, collect data about the outcomes, and test an alternative to the cumbersome prior authorization process to demonstrate that the workflow does not have to be altered for referring physicians.”

"Healthcare providers are increasingly under pressure to make appropriate clinical decisions, document those decisions and do so efficiently," said V. Katherine Gray, Ph.D., president, CEO and founder of Sage HMS. "With the recent economic pressures, patients, payers and the government are demanding more accountability in managing the costs and value of all healthcare services, and especially in the burgeoning diagnostic imaging services. RadWise provides the missing link to assist physicians, hospitals and clinics to meet and exceed these demands."
