Statewide Initiative Launched to Help Ensure Patients Receive Appropriate High-Tech Diagnostic Imaging Exams
Date:11/10/2010

tential model for how health information technology can have a meaningful positive impact on patient care while also reducing health care costs for consumers, patients, employers, providers and health plans. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has considered the use of prior authorization to slow the burgeoning increase in the use of HTDI procedures in the national Medicare population. Following a review of the ICSI decision-support pilot, CMS in July 2010 announced it would conduct a demonstration project to determine if electronic decision-support can improve quality of care and reduce unnecessary radiation exposure and utilization by promoting appropriate ordering of advanced imaging services nationally.

Information on the ICSI initiative plus demos of the decision-support and data analysis tools can be found at http://www.icsi.org/health_care_redesign_/diagnostic_imaging_35952/.
