Ahead of the Curve: Radiology as Catalyst for System-Wide Clinical Decision Support

January 1, 2020 marks the formal implementation of the appropriate use criteria (AUC) program established by the Protecting Access to Medicare Act legislation, which requires referring providers to consult AUC prior to ordering advanced diagnostic imaging services — CT, MR, Nuclear Medicine and PET — for Medicare patients.

Catch the replay of the recent AHA Physician Alliance webinar to hear how radiology leaders at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston collaborated across departments to integrate CDS into the health system’s medical record, putting referrers on the pathway to compliance. The webinar features Dr. Melissa Chen, Assistant Professor, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Division of Diagnostic Imaging at MD Anderson Cancer Center and Dr. Kevin McEnery, Professor, Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Division of Diagnostic Imaging at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
