Digisonics Cardiovascular Information System Provides Appropriate Use Criteria to Assist Meeting Requirements of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014

HOUSTON – The Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 recently passed by Congress requires use of appropriate use criteria (AUC) and clinical decision support (CDS) software by healthcare facilities in order to receive Medicare reimbursement. Digisonics provides this functionality in their Cardiovascular Information Systems (CVIS). Appropriate Use Criteria are evidence-based guidelines to assist clinicians in making the appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition/indication.

Digisonics recognized that appropriate use criteria was essential for clinicians and developed this functionality for their cardiovascular information system solutions, enabling facilities to ensure compliance with healthcare regulations.  In addition, facilities using the Digisonics software validates the quality of patient care by providing clinicians with standards-based guidelines to make the best clinical decisions.
