What you need to know before deciding on a CDSM:




Every AUC solution employs one of the following levels of integration:

No Integration - Standalone solutions require pivoting away from the EHR to enter data into the CDSM risking error and consuming valuable time.

<iframe> Integration - Visual integration within the EHR reduces the pivot, but still requires re-entry and still contains risk of error and time burden.

Contextual Integration - Full EHR integration with patient data captures patient context and delivers personalized AUC recommendations without the burdens of pivoting, double entry, human error, and lost time. 

Free isn't Free

When deciding on which AUC solution to choose, consider the hidden costs:

Time burdens

   • Pivoting away from the workflow to re-enter patient context

   • Inefficiencies passing information between clinical team members

   • Administrative efforts correcting improperly coded image orders


   • Human errors

        - Multiple patient confusion (cut and paste crossover)

        - Typos

   • Non-reimbursement due to improper pre-authorization

   • Delayed or denied service from imaging provider

   • CMS audit failure leading to penalties
