Siemens Healthineers offers products and services in its core areas of diagnostic and therapeutic imaging and in laboratory diagnostics and molecular medicine. Medicalis is a provider of Clinical Decision Support (CDS) Solutions at the point of order entry, Imaging Workflow (IW) management, and Referral Management (RM). The company’s solutions allow networks of hospitals (Health Systems/Integrated Delivery Networks) to improve physician productivity, manage patient referrals, and scheduling to enhance the relationship with the patient and ensure clinically appropriate imaging and tests to reduce inappropriate utilization. Medicalis’ solutions are expected to address the immediate need for consolidating providers to orchestrate and standardize their imaging workflow and to achieve compliance with the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, expected to become effective on January 1, 2018, which mandates consultation of appropriateness CDS at the point of order for certain advanced imaging tests.

Siemens Healthineers believes that these solutions will enable providers to achieve PAMA compliance while retaining control over the content, allowing them to move beyond simple compliance towards establishing an evolving standard of care based on evidence and direct health system experience. By incorporating these offerings into its PHM portfolio, Siemens Healthineers will enable healthcare providers to effectively bridge between PHM at the health system level and at the departmental level.

"The mission of Siemens Healthineers is to be the trusted partner enabling health systems and healthcare providers worldwide to improve medical outcomes and reduce costs," said Matthias Platsch, Head of Services, Siemens Healthineers. "The addition of Medicalis’ technology solutions to the Siemens Healthineers portfolio complements and supports our offerings in Population Health Management and Value-Based Healthcare, a key priority for our ongoing expansion through our Services business."

"The acquisition of Medicalis will allow us to offer healthcare providers a powerful solution to define, implement, monitor, and evolve their own standard of care for their diagnostic service line," said Robert Taylor, Head of Digital Services Population Health Management, Digital Health Services, Siemens Healthineers. “We are excited to support our customers with these innovative tools to remove the variability from key high-impact disease states, to create standardized diagnostic pathways which enhance outcomes, control costs, and when combined with intelligent referral management, improve the patient experience overall."

"We are eager to be joining Siemens Healthineers and believe that this is a strong fit for our company because of our shared values and pioneering heritage," said Oran Muduroglu, CEO of Medicalis Corporation. "With Siemens Healthineers, we will be able to broaden the context of our decision support, workflow, and referral management to utilize the full spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic areas in which Siemens Healthineers operates, to address care gaps, streamline workflow, and help improve the overall experience of healthcare."
