GE, Medicalis partner on imaging appropriateness
GE Healthcare has launched a partnership with a provider of clinical decision support for diagnostic imaging (CDS-DI), Medicalis.

The agreement, which will integrate Medicalis' CDS-DI solution with GE's Centricity Imaging IT and 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).

According to GE, CDS-DI from the Mississauga, Ontario-based Medicalis is a decision support module based on the guidelines of the American College of Radiology, American College of Cardiology, American College of Physicians, and the American Society of Spine Radiologists that features in-context advice as a provider first places an imaging study order.
