CDSR

The CDS Registry (CDSR) provides access to a subset of a facility’s imaging clinical decision support (CDS) data. Currently, participation is available for facilities that have CareSelect™ Imaging/ACR Select provided by the National Decision Support Company (NDSC).

The CDSR offers an interactive report that provides feedback on referring providers’ adherence to the ACR’s Appropriate Criteria®. Report filters include:

  • Imaging topic areas, e.g., low back pain, headache,
  • Imaging clinical indications
  • Ordering departments, practices, or groups along with a breakdown of the respective number of cases ordered
  • Date range

The CDSR provides data that facilitates conduct of an R-SCAN quality improvement project, a mechanism for radiologists and referring clinicians to collaborate on improving the ordering of imaging exams that add value to patient care.
