Who We Are
CliniCentric is a physician-led software company with deep experience in developing software applications that clinicians across the healthcare spectrum truly appreciate and use during individual patient encounters. We also recognize the importance of business intelligence, billing and coding, data science, and research and support these disciplines downstream from our clinician-centered approach, thereby ensuring the overall goal of healthcare (patient wellness) is supported through every one of our applications.

Dr Mark Nigogosyan
Dr. Nigogosyan is our staff radiologist. For 32 years he has specialized in Musculoskeletal radiology and Ultrasound at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, Wisconsin. During much of that time Mark has been the medical director of the PACS Project, overseeing the deployment and management of PACS and related applications. He is also involved in system integration projects related to PACS and the Electronic Medical Record. Mark is co-founder of RadMapps, a program designed to automatically structure radiology procedure codes, which has become a foundational element within CliniCentric’s technology stack.
Joel came to be our radiology terminology expert through a circuitous but highly effective pathway. Already established as one of the nation’s premier grand piano restoration artists, Joel began working after hours as a database and natural language processing programmer for radiologic studies. More than 10 years of continued effort, and wide exposure to PACS, EHR, and billing based radiologic terminology, led to a substantial and utterly unique body of work. Initially employed in the service of his co-founded RadMapps program, Joel’s technology was acquired and put into service as a bedrock technology component within CliniCentric.
