Description

January, 1st, 2020 marks the formal implementation of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA), a program in which ordering providers must consult a qualified Clinical Decision Support Mechanism when ordering outpatient advanced imaging tests for Medicare patients. In addition to driving intrinsic value, when delivered through clinical decision support (CDS), this directive creates opportunities for quality improvement. Hear how radiology leaders at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston partnered across departments to integrate CDS into the health system’s medical record, putting referrers on the pathway to PAMA compliance.
