More than volunteer physicians, representing more than 20 radiology and non-radiology specialty organizations, participate on the ACR expert panels to continuously update these guidelines. Ellenbogen, M. ACR said its software will enable physicians to order the right imaging examination at the right time and can improve quality, reduce unnecessary scans and lower imaging costs.

Healthcare IT vendors have developed CDS that integrates with EMRs and includes benefits managers and insurance companies to ensure payment for appropriate procedures.

These systems also combine guidelines from multiple sources into one location. It also documents the diagnosis and procedures, and records the current imaging recommendation regardless of what was ordered. RadWise CDS can help organizations improve quality by determining the most appropriate imaging, eliminating unnecessary or redundant tests, monitoring radiation exposure and documenting outcomes. Epic Imaging, an outpatient diagnostic imaging center in Portland, Ore. Everyone today is just too busy to deviate from their workflow.

Smart Read aggregates expert wisdom into easy-to-understand points that are displayed during image interpretation.

Providers indicated that changing cultures and gaining consensus was often the most challenging part of getting to a standard, and that the evidence and tools in order sets and care plans made that process easier. Few provider organizations have measured the impact of their CDS tools on actual outcomes. Most providers are optimistic, but responses on positive outcomes were often anecdotal, so more data needs to be collected.
