The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration

Colleagues,

As reported in Aunt Minnie ... The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a $10 million project to evaluate the efficacy of decision-support systems for ordering diagnostic imaging studies...

...
With its Medicare Imaging Demonstration initiative, CMS will seek to determine if the use of decision-support systems can promote the ordering of diagnostic imaging procedures only when they are clinically appropriate, thereby reducing unnecessary radiation exposure to patients, reducing imaging expenditures, and improving the quality of patient care...

...
CMS is seeking participation by 2,500 to 3,500 physicians from 500 to 650 physician practices that vary in size, specialty mix, type (both academic and private practice), and geographic location. All physicians must have the ability to submit data electronically..

... The maximum annual payment per practice for participating in the demonstration
is $20,000...

... The deadline for proposal submission is September 21, 2010, and details may be accessed by clicking here...
