Medicalis Corp. is incorporating the American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria guidelines into its Percipio clinical decision support knowledgebase.
           
The ACR Appropriateness Criteria are a set of guidelines that can assist primary-care physicians and specialists in making appropriate imaging decisions for given patient clinical conditions. The ACR has developed consensus-driven guidelines for radiology decision-making over the past decade.
           
Adding ACR's Appropriateness Criteria into the Medicalis knowledgebase will provide Medicalis users with access to radiology-specific guidelines from both the ACR, and the Center for Evidence Based Imaging (CEBI) at Brigham and Women's Hospital.  These guidelines will be deployed at the point-of-care using the Percipio web-based order entry system, ensuring that orders are safe, clinically appropriate, and cost effective.
