April 2, 2021 — Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, announced a partnership with MDinteractive, a Qualified Registry with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), to include the CMS Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Measures within Elsevier’s STATdx, a leadingradiology diagnostic decision support solution. The partnership will provide STATdx customers who participate in the CMS Quality Payment Program (QPP)  with updates to MIPS Measures within their current workflow.

MIPS follows a traditional fee-for-service structure, with the CMS determining a clinician’s final payment amount based on their measured “score” across four categories: Quality, Promoting Interoperability, Improvement Activities, and Cost. STATdx users will receive access to the latest Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology MIPS Measures validated by MDinteractive. This provides clinicians with a guide to ensure that they are continuing to provide high-quality patient care, while helping them stay on track of their goal of achieving high-performing MIPS scores.

STATdx has proven to be a vital solution in the field of radiology by offering crucial insights on complex images. This partnership with MDinteractive will provide even more value by ensuring that clinicians are meeting the goals for industry standards of care while also allowing them to evaluate their own levels of success to ensure appropriate reimbursement.

STATdx is an industry-leading online diagnostic support solution that increases accuracy and confidence in diagnosing complex imaging cases. Currently in use at 19 of the top 20 hospitals and in 83% of top radiology practices in North America, STATdx provides radiologists with instant access to the collective clinical experience and knowledge of renowned subspecialists in every field of radiology. STATdx, written by experts in each subspecialty, is widely regarded as the "gold standard" of radiology diagnostic decision support. STATdx users also have access to more than 4,700 common and complex diagnoses, 200,000 expert-selected and annotated image examples, 20,000 easily sortable patient cases for select topics, point-of-care CME integrated with CME Gateway, and much more.
