"When it came time to select an image sharing vendor, Medicom was the obvious choice for Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers. Ease of use, quick connection, and an accessible support team were some must haves in a vendor. Medicom checked all of our boxes and is far superior than the other vendors we considered. Ever since the in-person onboarding, they have worked by our side, accommodating our every need. If a problem arises, we can go directly to their team for a solution, they are easy to talk to and quick to respond. Medicom just gets it - They truly are an extension of our team.”

- Jordan Lopes - IT Applications Manager @ Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers

Components

Automated Patient Record Location

  1. A patient is scheduled for an appointment: The appointment priority level (STAT, ASAP, Routine, etc.) is used to either immediately issue a network broadcast query or wait until a set period of time before the scheduled appointment date.
  2. Schedule message generated: Information is gathered from an HL7 order/scheduling message or through FHIR/API access.
  3. Network query: Medicom service automatically broadcasts a federated query to Medicom Network providers.
  4. Processed query: All Trusted Contacts who have authorized Automated Federated Search will receive the query.
  5. Matched record: For patient safety, Automated Federated Search will only return data if a single, distinct match is returned from an external system for the patient. If no matches or multiple matches are returned, an alert is generated in the worklist and sent to designated users via email.
  6. Data update: Data received through Automated Federated Search will have a message inserted as the first element in the returned series informing staff that the data was automatically retrieved.

  • The HL7 engine enables order for exams and their results to be routed through the Medicom Network.
  • Referring providers can order directly from their EHR.
  • Once the exam is completed, the referring physician will receive the report back in the EHR.

  • Based on information in HL7 scheduling message.
  • Retrieve and route prior exams to specific workstations or workstation managers (configured in the Routing Mapping).
  • Define when the prefetch takes places (number of days before the appointment and at what time) and how many years of prior information should be pulled.

  • Reconcile a study before ingestion into PACS and the EHR.
  • Search for existing patients in PACS to automatically update the patient’s demographics before ingestion.

  • Works with facilities that have multiple physical locations and staff.
  • Manage health information sharing between locations.
  • Filter electronic requests Inbox and Outbox by location.
