Carmel, IN, June 7, 2010 – Clinical Architecture today announced that Picis, a global provider of innovative information solutions for acute care settings has selected Clinical Architecture’s Symedical® interoperability solution. Symedical enables clinical applications to share patient information as actionable discrete data. Picis chose to integrate Symedical into its CareSuite® family of high-acuity solutions to support new medication decision support capabilities.

“Our clients have benefited tremendously from the significant industry expertise Clinical Architecture brings to the table,” said Shari Medina, MD FACEP, Senior Director of Clinical Informatics for Picis.

Clinical Architecture specializes in meeting the integration and interoperability needs of healthcare through niche consulting and application development. With Symedical, the company has introduced a unique approach to automating the creation and ongoing management of clinical terminology maps. Meaningful clinical decision support requires a consistently accurate representation of the patient’s clinical context which is possible with Symedical.

“The power of Symedical is its ability to improve the fidelity of terminology maps, while reducing the time and effort required to create and manage them,” said Charlie Harp, Chief Executive Officer of Clinical Architecture. “Picis has taken the extra step of customizing their implementation of Symedical so their clients will benefit from the convenient one-click import/export of interoperability maps.”
