At MEDHOST, we’re committed to empowering your healthcare facility or hospital with the knowledge and tools you need to deliver the highest quality care available. In keeping with our promise to you, we recently announced our decision to enable integration with CareSelect® Imaging.
CareSelect Imaging is a clinical decision support mechanism that delivers advanced imaging guidelines at the point-of-order to help health systems improve overall quality, drive out waste and improve ordering appropriateness. This extension will deliver Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC)1 to applicable customers directly into their MEDHOST EHR solution and enable workflows for compliance with the AUC consultation mandate of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA).
With PAMA, the radiologist’s challenge now centers on implementation.
The congressional mandate for CMS to require Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) consultation during the ordering of advanced diagnostic imaging is upon us. This year is a voluntary reporting period, 2020 is an educational and operations testing period, and
2021 is the formal start date with payments at risk. This program is a major policy change, requiring significant effort by our profession. For many radiology professionals, the new law has prompted a first introduction into AUC and clinical decision support (CDS) for practices. In this column, I discuss the origins of AUC, how it has evolved, and how it became a component of payment policy.
Clinical decision support (CDS) tools help trainee physicians in the emergency department order advanced imaging more appropriately. Then again, experienced physicians using the tools hit about the same appropriateness scores as the interns, residents and fellows.
CareSelect Imaging offers a comprehensive CDS solution for advanced imaging and provides a pathway to fulfill PAMA Mandate
