Computerized order entry/decision support systems: Effective solution to managing imaging utilization
Date:11/24/2009

barriers to ordering can be implemented. Physician performance with respect to appropriateness is tracked over time, and compared to his/her peers. Additionally, alerts about duplicative scans can avoid unnecessary patient radiation and other examination risks," said Keysor.

The radiology department at Massachusetts General Hospital uses a computerized order entry system. Their seven-year experience shows a reduction in the quarterly compound growth rate of 2.75 percent for outpatient CT, 1.2 percent for outpatient MRI, and 1.3 percent for outpatient ultrasound.

"This is a time-efficient and cost-effective process that can be used in inpatient, outpatient and emergency care settings. CPOE with decision support has proven to be an effective approach to imaging utilization and should be explored further," she said.
