Clinical Decision Support Survey - June 25, 2018
In the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) of 2014, Congress included a mandate - also known as the CMS Appropriate Use Criteria program (AUC) - which requires ordering providers to consult AUC via an electronic Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM) when ordering outpatient advanced imaging exams for Medicare patients. Medicare has delayed the CDS provider deadline to January 1, 2020. AHRA’s Regulatory Affairs Committee, in an effort to understand how prepared members are and to understand the challenges they face, recently conducted a survey. The information from this survey will be used to help operationalize the process to flow from the order through to the billing forms, including hospital technical, global, and professional environments, without manual intervention by imaging and billing staff.

Clinical Decision Support Survey - March 1, 2017
The Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) of 2014 established the Appropriate Use Criteria program with the goal of increasing the rate of appropriate advanced diagnostic imaging services provided to Medicare beneficiaries. Under this program, at the time a practitioner orders an advanced imaging service for a Medicare beneficiary, he/she will be required to consult a qualified Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM). Recently, the AHRA surveyed members to assess preparedness.
