medQ and LogicNets announce partnership to provide CDS to joint customers


Plano, Texas and Washington DC– Healthcare and enterprise imaging workflow systems provider medQ, Inc.  announces it has teamed with LogicNets, an approved Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM) vendor, to provide an Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) software solution fully integrated into Q/ris 3000 enterprise imaging software. This program will be generally available in early 2018.

CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) requires that selected clinical indications representing an initial eight clinical priority areas must go through a formal process to be validated against evidence-based AUCs to assist ordering physicians and other providers in selecting the most appropriate imaging procedure\.  If this protocol is not used by accessing CMS-approved AUC solutions, CMS will not reimburse doctors for the work done.  CMS is also incenting use of this technology through a MIPS credit program.

Working with LogicNets, medQ has integrated a complete AUC solution into their ordering physician protocols and embedded this protocol in their Q/ris 3000 enterprise imaging software and physician’s web portal.  This integration automates the decision process and makes it easy for physicians to use the new feature either on line or via the imaging center. All the proper authorization numbers are automatically recorded and then seamlessly sent to billing for prompt and accurate reimbursement. The feature can work in a “silent” mode, automatically validating a proposed treatment from patient record information or it can be used in an interactive mode to guide ordering professionals through diagnostics pathways and to access contextual references and clinical aids.

medQ,Inc., headquartered in Plano, Texas, provides radiology information technology and enterprise imaging solutions that enable healthcare providers to deliver quality, cost effective patient care.

LogicNets is a Washington DC-based software developer and provider of the LogicNets Decision Support Platform.  LogicNets allows critical decision-making processes to be efficiently captured by qualified knowledge organizations and then makes resulting electronic protocols and guidelines available online and on-demand to both systems and interactive users.  LogicNets is a CMS-qualified Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM) and provides a complete AUC solution for radiology under PAMA based on partnerships with Intermountain Health, NCCN, ACC, and other CMS-qualified PLE providers of AUC content.

medQ will be at RSNA 2017, South Building, booth 3947 and LogicNets will be at booth 1026. Contact us to schedule a live demo, or visit our website, www.medq.com

medQ Supports Advanced Medical Imaging’s Mammo Club


medQ, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise imaging workflow solutions announces their collaboration with Advanced Medical Imaging of Lincoln, NE to customize the front end of their Q/ris 3000 EHR to accommodate the need to automate and manage their Mammo Club operations. The AMI Mammo club was designed to keep their patients continually updated on their health and generally informed of women’s health issues. Begun in 2007, Advanced Medical Imaging had been manually entering and manually tracking over 3,500 active member’s profiles. medQ, Inc. worked with AMI to customize the front end of their Q/ris 3000 EHR to accommodate their need to enroll and track the patients in the AMI Mammo Club.

In addition, medQ created a series of reports on members and their emails so AMI can send out member specific newsletters.  “AMI is really dedicated to providing care beyond simple imaging to their community and are proud to work with them to make this happen.” Said John Norman, CEO medQ, Inc. John went on to say, “This is an exciting opportunity for us to be able to help AMI to provide that personal touch they want to serve their customers.”

Advanced Medical Imaging has integrated this club into the daily mammography imaging workflow. “Enrollment is done at registration.  The patient is offered a 12 month membership punch card they can bring in for a monthly gift. The gift acts as a reminder to perform self-examination and spread breast health awareness” said Georgia Blobaum, AMI Chief Operations Officer. The monthly gift also serves an added benefit for patients who choose AMI for future mammograms and allows AMI to cross market their other services. Each month, AMI downloads an up-to-date member e-mail list and sends a newsletter with the upcoming month’s gift information and an update on current women’s health issues.

Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI) is the largest independent radiology group in Nebraska. AMI Radiologists serve as the sole radiology providers for their imaging center in Lincoln, nearly half of the Critical Access Hospitals in rural Nebraska, and two regional health centers: St. Elizabeth Hospital in Lincoln and Mercy Medical Center of Sioux City, IA. Founded in 2001, the practice has tripled in size and is constantly expanding their service area. AMI’s mission is to provide compassionate patient-focused care achieved though regional awareness, advanced technology, unsurpassed operational excellence, teamwork, and leadership.
