MedCurrent Corporation, Los Angeles, has just launched OrderRight, a new radiology decision support solution for payors, imaging facilities and referring physicians.

The new platform supports automated payor pre-authorization with a rules-based system that includes the American College or Radiology’s appropriateness criteria. It also features a proprietary Rule Authoring Studio, which gives administrators a customizable rule control and flexibility for clinical and regulatory responsiveness.

OrderRight is designed to be used as either a stand-alone solution, or it can be integrated within a payor’s provider portal, or a facility’s EMR or RIS.

MedCurrent president, Stephen Herman, MD, associate professor of radiology at the University of Toronto, commented in the press announcement, “This medical appropriateness decision support solution instantaneously provides physicians the information required by payors to optimize provider reimbursement, dramatically improving practice efficiency, while completely eliminating a payor’s cost of unnecessary authorization denials and appeals.”

OrderRight also meets requirements for the new Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) for commercial insurers and Medicare Advantage plans (MIPPA), as well as Integrated Delivery Systems, Physician-Hospital Organizations, IPAs, MSOs and Medicaid Managed Care Organizations.
