NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 8, 2019––Change Healthcare (Nasdaq: CHNG), today announced that its artificial intelligence (AI) technology has been added to the CareSelect™ Imaging decision support solution. The new AI capabilities will help healthcare providers using leading electronic health record (EHR) systems enhance workflow efficiency, improve patient safety, provide higher-value care, and meet pending regulatory requirements.
CareSelect Imaging now uses Change Healthcare AI in EHR workflow to help physicians streamline imaging orders. In addition, it helps providers comply with new Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) requirements governing advanced imaging ordered under Medicare Part B.
“Bringing Change Healthcare AI to CareSelect Imaging helps providers ensure they’re delivering the highest quality, most appropriate care, while reducing their administrative and regulatory burdens through advanced automation,” said Michael Mardini, CEO of National Decision Support Company, a Change Healthcare Company. “This is a perfect example of how strategic applications of AI will continue to improve healthcare processes and benefit all stakeholders.”
Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) PAMA regulation requires physicians ordering advanced imaging exams for Medicare patients to consult Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) through a qualified electronic clinical decision support tool. CareSelect Imaging is fully qualified by CMS to meet this requirement.
“We’re committed to optimizing clinical, administrative, and regulatory processes by infusing Change Healthcare AI into existing workflows across our large installed base of payers and providers,” said Nick Giannasi, Ph.D., executive vice president and chief AI officer for Change Healthcare. “This is the latest example of our commitment, which, in the end, helps improve care quality, ensure regulatory compliance, and free providers to spend more time with patients and less with paperwork.”
National Decision Support Company, a Change Healthcare Company, offers CareSelect™ Clinical Decision Support and analytics solutions designed to influence clinician ordering to manage utilization and control costs while reducing administrative burden and streamlining the payer and provider data exchange. CareSelect Imaging is installed in over a thousand healthcare provider organizations.
