Cranberry Peak to deliver ezCDS integrated in Houston Medical Imaging’s physician portal with state of the art FHIR/CDS Hooks interoperability technology

Houston Medical Imaging will implement Cranberry Peak’s ezCDS clinical decision support service. Referring providers for Houston Medical Imaging will be able to use ezCDS to consult the appropriateness of advanced imaging orders, integrated in the referring portal, at the point of ordering.

“We have a tradition of excellence in patient care. We are working closely with our network of providers to ensure an effective and simple referral process. In line with these goals, we are deploying a practical workflow for imaging appropriateness at the point of ordering for our referring providers, and we look forward to working with Cranberry Peak’s team to implement their clinical decision support service.“ said Diego Roldan, General Manager at Houston Medical Imaging. ‘We are excited by Cranberry Peak’s innovative product, its modern integration approach, in addition to Cranberry Peak’s focus on customers.”

ezCDS is a CMS qualified clinical decision support mechanism (CDSM) for the Appropriate Use Criteria Program (AUC), supporting the implementation of Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA). Specifically, under this program, ordering physicians would be required to consult a CDSM for advanced diagnostic imaging orders. In addition to facilitating evidence-based medicine and standards of care at the point of care, ezCDS is also transforming user experience in healthcare, enabling practical workflows that are easy to deploy by outpatient imaging centers for referral networks; all in an effort to reduce physician burnout.

“We’ve been impressed from the very beginning by Houston Medical Imaging team’s forward looking approach, its focus on innovation and on practical, efficient solutions”, said Neculai Archip, PhD, MBA, the Founder and CEO of Cranberry Peak. “Many freestanding imaging centers are working hard to provide clinical decision support services to their referring providers who don’t have already access to a CDS solution in their EHR. One of the related challenges is the need for a practical, seamless workflow, with little disruption for referring physicians. This innovation is addressing this exact challenge, and we look forward to working with the Houston Medical Imaging team. Imaging centers such as Houston Medical Imaging have the opportunity to create benchmarks for operational efficiency and clinical care.”
