Join R-SCAN. PAMA is Coming.
R-SCAN participants gain free access to a customized version of the ACR Select™ clinical decision support (CDS) tool, the Web-based version of the complete ACR Appropriateness Criteria®(AC). In the near future, under the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA), CMS will require consultation of appropriate use criteria in the ordering of advanced imaging exams as a condition for reimbursement to imaging providers. For practices that already have CDS installed, R-SCAN can serve as an important first step for tracking and improving adherence with appropriate use.
