Medicalis, MITEM to jointly market radiology and lab ordering tools

Medicalis Corp. and MITEM Corp. have inked a co-marketing agreement for diagnostic order entry systems for both radiology and laboratories.  The agreement will provide a common platform and single source for access to Medicalis Percipio and Blue Iris Dr. Chart clinical applications, according to a release.   

Dr. Chart, part of the Blue Iris family of MITEM-owned products, is a complete connectivity application that links laboratories efficiently and securely. The system enables healthcare providers to initiate lab orders, check medical necessity compliance and view results using a secure web connection.

Medicalis Percipio is a radiology order entry and decision support tool that connects radiology clinics with their ordering communities. Percipio is used to create and schedule imaging orders, check order appropriateness and provide online access to results.

Both the Medicalis and MITEM use a similar approach and should therefore provide customers with a simplified physician ordering process to further extend outreach efforts, and promote customer satisfaction in both radiology and laboratory services. Simultaneously, the capture of order information will streamline internal workflows, increase reimbursement and facilitate adherence with benefits management programs, the companies said.
