Aidoc and SaferMD Partner on AI Solution to Enhance MIPS Payment

November 20, 2018 — Artificial intelligence (AI) radiology solutions provider Aidoc announced a partnership with SaferMD to provide the first complete solution to use AI to improve clinical performance and reward radiologists with higher scores in the Medicare Merit-Based Incentive Payments System (MIPS). This can enable them to earn positive payment adjustments for Medicare procedures.

Under MIPS, healthcare providers can earn positive payment if they demonstrate that they provide high-quality, efficient care.

SaferMD's Radiology Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) is approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for 2018-2019 MIPS reporting. It currently offers 19 high-priority measures and eight sub-measures that reflect communication performance for critical and actionable results in imaging exams.

Radiologists can use SaferMD and Aidoc's combined solution to automatically generate the data they need to report MIPS and show the value of AI-based imaging analysis.

Aidoc's AI-driven radiology solution immediately flags critical conditions and moves them to the top of the work list, speeding diagnosis and treatment times for the most serious cases. It already has U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for detecting intracranial hemorrhage in head computed tomography (CT) scans.

A demonstration of the combined solution will take place at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.
