AHA Webinar to Feature MD Anderson’s Approach to CDS Integration

The American College of Radiology encourages you to your mark calendars and register for the American Hospital Association’s Physician Health Alliance webinar on July 16, featuring the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s approach to mandatory implementation of appropriate use criteria (AUC).

By viewing Ahead of the Curve: Radiology Practice as Catalyst for System-Wide Clinical Decision Support, you will learn how MD Anderson’s radiology leaders formed interdepartmental collaborations to integrate clinical decision support (CDS) into their health system’s electronic medical record, putting their referring physicians on the pathway to compliance with the Protecting Access to Medicare Act.

The federal law requires ordering physicians to consult AUC using a qualified CDS mechanism when ordering outpatient advanced imaging tests for their Medicare patients. Mandatory implementation begins January 1, 2020.

Registration is now open. The webinar begins at 1 pm EDT on Tuesday, July 16.
