Software Allows Organizations to Amend Rule Sets

October 28, 2010 – A new medical appropriateness decision support solution will be on display at RSNA 2010. OrderRight 2.0, by MedCurrent, gives primary care and specialty physicians the information they need at the time of the radiologic test so the appropriate tests can be ordered.

The product helps organizations improve patient care planning and treatment, reduces inappropriate utilization and mitigates costs. For radiologists, it helps practices optimize reimbursement, reduce unnecessary radiation exposure for their patients and ensure the most accurate diagnoses.

Additionally, OrderRight provides an estimate of the level of ionizing radiation received by the patient and the level of urgency, and links to applicable protocols. The system also provides ordering physicians and radiologists with extensive reference text and clinical citations on the rationale behind the appropriateness scores and recommended radiology procedures.

“We’ve created our system’s scoring metrics to extend beyond first-generation radiology decision support solutions,” says Stephen Herman, M.D. “If the system determines there may be more appropriate procedures for the patient than the one ordered, it presents these options. Additionally, the referring physician can initiate the order by providing clinical information only and the system can be configured to recommend the most appropriate study to order. The doctor is given an explanation behind the appropriateness score and a link to reference text in medical literature that supports the options being presented.”

The company will also demonstrate the system’s Rule Authoring Studio, which allows each customer to customize appropriateness rules to meet their local standards of practice. With this feature, new rules and criteria can be created and clinically tested for consideration to be added into the system’s ruleset. OrderRight includes rulesets from the ACR and can easily be extended to include those from other organizations.
