Medicalis and MITEM Corporation Combine Radiology and
Laboratory Ordering Solutions
Menlo Park, CA – Kitchener, ON, Canada, May 31, 2006. Medicalis® Corporation, a provider of radiology outreach solutions, and MITEM Corporation, a provider of laboratory outreach solutions, today announced the signing of a co-marketing agreement for diagnostic order entry solutions. The agreement will provide a common platform and single source for access to Medicalis Percipio™ and Blue Iris Dr. Chart® clinical applications, allowing healthcare providers to facilitate and accelerate care through better management of diagnostic orders.
Dr. Chart, part of the Blue Iris family of MITEM-owned products, is a complete connectivity application that links laboratories efficiently and securely to the healthcare providers they serve. Dr. Chart enables healthcare providers to initiate lab orders, check medical necessity compliance and view results rapidly and accurately using a secure Internet connection.
Medicalis Percipio is a radiology order entry and decision support solution 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.
The similar solution approach used by Medicalis and MITEM will create immediate benefits for healthcare providers with the desire to simplify the physician ordering process, further extend outreach efforts, and promote customer satisfaction in both radiology and laboratory services. At the same time, capture of order information will streamline internal workflows, increase reimbursement and facilitate adherence with benefits management programs.
“We are pleased to be working with an industry leader such as MITEM and will now be able to provide a combined radiology and laboratory ordering solution in response to requests from our customers.” said Ron Kelly, President and CEO of Medicalis.
Aurel Kleinerman, MD, MITEM’s CEO, said “Our joint value proposition will significantly contribute to more integrated radiology and laboratory solutions. We have already seen the demand for more unified product offerings across differing specialties. This relationship will strengthen the products from Medicalis and MITEM, and provide current and future customers with the superior products they demand.”
