SimonMed Imaging is the largest
physician-owned outpatient radiology
practice in the U.S. With 200
subspecialty trained radiologists
working at 150+ accredited facilities in
nine states, SimonMed uses the latest
technology to provide earlier and more
10,000+ daily orders, hundreds of formats
SimonMed processes more than 10,000
orders per day. Requests come in an
astounding variety of formats, through 1,300
EMRs, and via faxes that must be converted
to EMR records. No matter the format,
referring physicians need answers quickly to
properly diagnose their patients.
Chief Information Officer Duleep
Wikramanayake explains, “No RIS (radiology
information system) has 100% of the
functionality a radiology group needs,” so
each customizes their system with unique
formats and fields. Add in ever-evolving HL7
standards and the data sharing challenge
grows extraordinarily complex.
For years, SimonMed used BizTalk to manage
the data, but the capabilities were lacking
and the non-standard interfaces created
confusion. Troubleshooting was difficult,
frustrating and expensive — and support is
scheduled to end entirely.
Corepoint Integration Engine
For 15 years across previous roles, Duleep had used Corepoint Integration Engine. When he joined SimonMed and began exploring how to improve data flows between SimonMed and providers, he turned again to Corepoint.
No matter which RIS, fields or format a
provider uses, Corepoint can ingest the data.
Onboarding new EMRs is easy — Duleep notes
that it takes “half an hour, rather than
dragging on three weeks.” As a result,
SimonMed radiologists can provide
diagnoses with minimal disruption.
Even the HL7 integration is flawless. “Finally,
somebody made HL7 easy,” Duleep says.
“Now I can be the middleman and control
And as issues arise, Duleep and his team can
get answers quickly from Corepoint’s prompt,
“With Corepoint, now we can say, ‘Just send it the way it is,’ and everyone is happy.”

Faster time-to-revenue, improved patient outcomes
The SimonMed team is scaling to support 1,550 EMR
integrations for 10,000+ daily tests, all via Corepoint.
Meanwhile, Corepoint’s APIs are powering several of
SimonMed’s own custom apps to streamline billing
and improve processes.
Through these custom apps, Corepoint data can
help identify the 10 to 20% of records missing critical
billing information — improving time-to-revenue.
Corepoint also helps SimonMed link multiple exams
from the same patient, giving radiologists a more
comprehensive understanding of the patient. And
with seamless integrations, exams move more
quickly through the system so providers can deliver
In fact, the Corepoint-driven improvements are so
valuable that SimonMed often pays for the
infrastructure to bring more providers online. With
simple onboarding, it’s a smart investment that
improves efficiency, billing and patient outcomes.
