This webinar focuses on creating a holistic strategy for Radiology Clinical Decision Support. Your strategy requires a methodical technical, operational, clinical and behavioral methodology to ensure efficiency, easy physician adoption, ordering behavioral change, and ultimately optimal reimbursement. In part 1, we will focus on the pre-planning aspects of your strategy.


Here's what you'll learn:

  • Understand the details of the radiology clinical decision support mandate
  • Decide to use CMS approved rules or become a physician-led entity


  • Customize a CDS strategy that is right for your organization
  • Manage CDS for inpatient and outpatient, imaging centers and non-affiliated clinics
  • Leverage data in your EMR for CDS
  • Plan for clinical and technical CDS training (use, analysis and rule creation)


  • Establish end-user workflow while maintaining physician adoption
  • Configure CDS for optimal provider efficiency
  • Leverage data for behavioral ordering change


  • Current and future-state workflow analysis
