Clinical Decision Support Volume Impact Analysis

By 2020, imaging programs must comply with the Medicare CDS mandate for advanced imaging exams, otherwise known as the Medicare AUC Program. This program requires providers to consult appropriate use criteria (AUC) through an electronic clinical decision support system (CDS) when ordering advanced outpatient imaging exams.

Implementation of this tool has the potential to impact current imaging volumes, because clinical guidelines may prompt providers to reduce inappropriate imaging orders and/or shift orders to more appropriate modalities. In this two-pager, we provide data on imaging volume changes experienced by CDS early adopters, as well as guidance on how to estimate volume changes at your organization.
