November 13, 2015 — At this year’s annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), MedCurrent will introduce a new tool that enables organizations to prospectively understand the impact and return on investment (ROI) of implementing clinical decision support (CDS). CDS will soon become a requirement as a result of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate for hospital radiology departments and imaging centers.

MedCurrent Impact is a tool that can be integrated with an organization’s electronic health record (EHR) system to evaluate baseline order appropriateness and optimality. Furthermore, the captured data is analyzed and presented through MedCurrent’s Analytics platform to illustrate modality volume shifts and interactive ROI calculations, enabling the organization to understand better the impact of implementing CDS on local operations and finances. The resulting data and knowledge will bolster relevant strategic planning initiatives and ensure a more customized enterprise-wide CDS implementation.

Additionally, a solution like MedCurrent Impact can provide organizations with a low-cost option to interact with initiatives designed to comply with the CDS mandate while allowing them to work simultaneously toward full compliance. MedCurrent’s tool can forecast projected shifts in modality traffic, for example, which can inform workflow planning, resource allocation and technology procurement.

CDS software uses appropriate use criteria (AUC) to analyze and rank the appropriateness of a provider’s diagnostic imaging orders based on each patient’s clinical scenario. Research has demonstrated the ability of CDS to reduce the number of inappropriate exams, thereby improving quality, reducing costs and reducing unnecessary patient exposure to radiation.
