Imaging Clinical Decision Support

As of January 1, 2020 CMS requires that physicians and advanced practice providers consult a clinical decision support system when ordering advanced imaging procedures in all care settings. This requirement applies to studies performed for Medicare patients at Franklin Community Health Network, Maine Medical Center, Pen Bay Medical Center and Southern Maine Health Care. Critical access hospitals are exempt from this requirement. MaineHealth has implemented the CareSelect imaging clinical decision support tool within Epic, our electronic health record system. Providers who are associated with MaineHealth but do not have access to Epic may access to the CareSelect imaging clinical decision support tool online.
