Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM) Solution
Ensure imaging procedures you perform will get
reimbursed by Medicare.
Infinx CDSM Solution
If you already use our artificial intelligence driven Prior Authorization Software, you are familiar with how easy it is to obtain timely prior authorization from commercial payers. Our new Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM) solution can now help ensure you obtain certified compliance certificates for advanced imaging orders covered by Medicare.
Currently, we are the only CMS-approved solution on the market that has developed a comprehensive CDSM solution that can be integrated with our Prior Authorization Software.
New CDSM Mandate
Starting January 1, 2023, physicians ordering specific advanced imaging tests for Medicare patients must confirm their treatment decision by consulting appropriate use criteria (“AUC”) with a Center for Medicare Services (“CMS”) approved electronic clinical decision support tool (“CDSM”) pursuant to the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (“PAMA”) passed in July 2014.
Proof of such consult must then be provided to the rendering physician who submits it to Medicare along with the claim for reimbursement after the imaging test is performed. Reimbursements will be withheld if it is determined that the ordering physician did not consult a CDSM tool before ordering the procedure.
