Medicalis automates radiology ordering with decision support at AHSC
Atlantic Health Sciences Corp. of New Brunswick, Canada, has begun a pilot program using Medicalis Corp.'s web-based Percipio system that will give general practitioners (GPs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) the ability to electronically order diagnostic imaging tests with clinical decision support tools.

AHSC community GPs and NPs will use Percipio to enter structured diagnostic exams to three order filler sites; Saint John Regional Hospital, St. Joseph's Hospital and Sussex Health Centre. Clinical decision support tools will provide guidance so that the right tests are ordered given the patient's signs, symptoms and relevant history.
