Beginning January 1, 2022, providers must consult AUC (Medicare Appropriate Use Criteria Program) when ordering outpatient advanced imaging (CT, MRI, PET, nuclear medicine), and furnishing providers (radiologists and imaging programs) must document this consultation on both professional and technical claims for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries.

The Medicalis Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM) enhances the quality of order entry within the electronic medical record by improving indications capture and aligning strong evidence with local best practice. CDSM ensures the “Right Order, First Time”, while reducing waste, delays in care, and improving physician-to-physician communication.
In daily practice, up to 26% of all imaging is ordered incorrectly when placed without evidence-based standards.
Every inappropriate imaging order wastes precious time and resources – and above all, unnecessarily increases imaging and care costs. Medicalis CDSM will help your institution and your referring physicians take a step toward precision medicine and real value-based care.
With every unnecessary exam, a patient’s confidence will decrease, and their anxiety will grow—along with the possibility of unnecessary exposure to radiation.
You can ensure your referring physicians are ordering exams for cases where the potential for positive impact on patient care is high, thus increasing the quality of service and providing added value without discouraging the ordering physician.
