LogicNets continues to be 100% committed to delivering its Appropriate Use CDSM solution in compliance with the original concepts set forth by CMS for the ordering of advanced imaging. We believe that our AUC Solution sets the standard for how clinical guidelines can be easily and productively incorporated into the healthcare workflow to optimize care. Recently, however, the CMS announced proposed rule changes that would indefinitely postpone their activation of enforcement actions to penalize ordering providers who don’t use a qCDSM like the AUC Solution. LogicNets has submitted a formal response to CMS which will be included in the public record and which we hope will influence CMS in incentivizing providers to categorically incorporate AUC validation into their workflow despite problems that CMS has had in implementing auditing as originally conceived in the PAMA act of 2014. Please feel free to review our comment and position statement here.
Arkansas Urology, a leading healthcare organization dedicated to providing comprehensive and specialized urological care to patients in the state of Arkansas and beyond, has implemented its use of the LogicNets AUC Solution into its operations. Since early 2023, the organization has accessed the LogicNets standalone web portal to quickly and efficiently validate the clinical appropriateness of advanced imaging service orders. The AUC Solution streamlines and optimizes the validation of advanced imaging orders with its unique guideline visualization. Implementing AUC validation for CMS patients in advance of CMS enforcement highlights Arkansas Urology’s commitment to using advanced technology to maximize quality.
LogicNets has successfully completed its SOC2 TYPE2 2023 audit, signifying our ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of data security and privacy for our customers.
Organizations, such as hospitals, insurance companies, etc., often rely on various technology vendors or cloud service providers to manage their electronic health records (EHRs), store patient data, or provide other critical IT services. In these cases, they may require their service providers to comply with SOC 2 Type 2 standards.
The SOC 2 Type 2 audit means that organizations engaging with LogicNets can be assured of appropriate implementation of safeguards to protect sensitive information, including measures to ensure the security of data, maintain system availability, safeguard patient privacy, and protect against unauthorized access or breaches.
LogicNets customers can request copies of the 2023 SOC 2 Type 2 audit.
LogicNets has released a new version of the AUC Solution, enhancing both the interactive AUC Portal and the API for the CDSM Web Service. The release includes a range of features, many to enhance the ability of our workflow vendor partners to provision and manage their customers’ use of AUC.

LogicNets is participating in a first-of-its-kind program launched by the Royal College of Pathology Australasia (RCPA) to assist pathologists in integrating advanced structured reporting into their histopathology workflow.
During the coming months, affiliated pathologists in Australasia can get free access to a range of structured reporting applications. Building on our success since 2013 of providing all the pathologist in the Netherlands with the most advanced structured reporting application, we are delighted to have made our system available for this new initiative.
For this program LogicNets has rendered a select group of RCPA and ICCR (International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting) structured pathology reporting protocols. These protocols optimally guide the user through a sequence of steps hiding all the complexities required for properly completing a histopathological report. By ensuring the completeness and accuracy of the histopathological report and the generation of structured data, the benefits for both cancer patient care and cancer research are tremendous and have already been documented in several recent scholarly papers.
The LogicNets structured reporting system integrates seamlessly with lab systems, thereby supporting the existing workflow. This enables pathologists to meet the now-mandatory structured reporting requirements of the National Pathology Accreditation Advisory Council (NPAAC) through level 6.

The Data Strategy and Security practice of Debevoise & Plimpton, a leading global corporate law firm, has launched its new data portal built on LogicNets. The new online interactive tool helps Debevoise clients facing a breach to assess and begin addressing their notification obligations within minutes of detection. It asks clients a series of questions about a hypothetical or actual incident, and within minutes it generates a detailed report of the resulting breach notification obligations – including whom to notify, by when, what the notice should include, and the method of notification. It also generates templates for the actual notifications. The Portal is regularly updated to reflect the latest changes in breach notification laws and regulatory guidance. By using LogicNets as the underlying no-code development platform, Debevoise has been able to create a highly sophisticated system that can be developed and maintained by legal content experts, with remarkably rapid updates to ensure compliance with a rapidly evolving legal landscape.
