October 26, 2016 — At the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2016), National Decision Support Company will showcase its expanded imaging decision support solution, CareSelect Imaging. The software expands on the range of criteria offered for imaging decision support and adds new core capabilities to the delivery platform.

“Through CareSelect Imaging, NDSC clients can now immediately access a comprehensive range of Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) published by every medical specialty society and multiple provider-led entities qualified by CMS [the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services] to produce criteria as outlined in the provisions of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA),” said Bob Cooke, vice president of marketing, NDSC.

The expanded AUC and indications from multiple qPLE cover comprehensive clinical scenarios for diagnostic, cardiac and cancer imaging through a single delivery platform. CareSelect Imaging now contains pediatric AUC and indications published in a joint effort by the Society of Pediatric Radiology and American College of Radiology (ACR). These new pediatric criteria build on the foundational criteria sets in NDSC’s flagship ACR Select offering, as well as criteria from the American College of Cardiology and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and other medical specialty societies.

“Delivering a comprehensive set of criteria and indications all rationalized into a single delivery platform assures providers that CareSelect Imaging will enable full compliance with all aspects of PAMA,” Cooke said. “On the delivery side, this assures that providers find the correct clinical question to answer through imaging to avoid outlier status with enough clinical specificity to ensure correct coding for a payable claim for the radiologist. This unified set of criteria also enables sites to readily adapt or create new guidelines to suit local practice or payer requirements.”

CareSelect Imaging includes a sophisticated calculation engine powered by a rich exchange of data with the electronic medical record (EMR). The calculation engine enables new capabilities including the computation of Wells and PERC scores for pulmonary embolism and pediatric head trauma based on PECARN (in support of JACHO requirements) and the ability to further inform provider feedback with data such as lab values and pregnancy status when accessing AUC.

The CareSelect platform is fully embedded within the order entry systems of all leading EMR platforms.
