Implementing Clinical Decision Support for Diagnostic Imaging in Your Practice

Learning Objectives
1. Describe the importance and benefits of clinical decision support (CDS)
2. Identify how to use CDS tools in your workflow to optimize patient care
3. Summarize the requirements and timeline of the federal mandate to consult appropriate use criteria (AUC) prior to ordering advanced imaging
1 Credit CME

Correctly implemented imaging clinical decision support tools allow you to deliver high-value, diagnostically useful radiological care to your patients. Teaching you how to use a convenient, continually updated evidence base to select the right imaging study for the right reason at the right time, the CDS module will help you appropriately use diagnostic imaging. Appropriate imaging use supports improved access to care, reduces systemic waste, and curbs unnecessary steps in the clinical process. You will be better prepared to meet the required use of CDS for advanced imaging under Protecting Access to Medicare Act after participating in this module.
