After discussion and problem solving, IS moved the go-live date for CareSelect enhancements from Aug. 18 to 24 — which still meets the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services requirement.

CareSelect began last fall per the CMS requirement. It uses clinical criteria such as the patient’s age, sex, the study ordered, clinical indication(s), problem list, and encounter diagnoses to help determine the most appropriate imaging study for a patient based on appropriate use criteria (AUC) supplied by medical societies.

Referring providers are required to consult AUC prior to ordering advanced diagnostic imaging services — CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and PET — for Medicare Part-B patients.

See the tip sheet for support on how to address the support tool when it pops up. The tip sheet will also be available on the provider dashboard in Epic.
