Software Allows Organizations to Control Rule Sets

November 10, 2010 – A new version of a medical decision support solution will be unveiled at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in Chicago. OderRight 2.0, by MedCurrent, gives physicians the information they need at the time radiologic tests are ordered so that the most appropriate study is performed.

The system also helps organizations improve patient care planning and treatment, reduce inappropriate utilization, and mitigate costs.

After the physician selects a study and provides patient-specific information, it instantly provides an appropriateness score based on a scoring system designed by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Additionally, the system estimates the level of radiation received by the patient, the level of urgency and links to applicable protocols. It also provides ordering physicians and radiologists with extensive reference text and clinical citations.

The Rule Authoring Studio provides administrative tools that allow each customer to modify and customize the appropriateness rules to meet their local standards of practice. With this feature, new rules and criteria can be created and clinically tested. OrderRight includes rule sets from the ACR and can easily be extended to include those from other specialty professional organizations.
