Cardiology and Radiology Imaging Indications Upgraded

For All Providers
Effective Tuesday, Dec. 15

On Tuesday, Dec. 15, cardiology and radiology imaging indications will change in keeping with 2021 PAMA regulations. With this upgrade:

  • Indications are streamlined for cardiology and radiology orders.

  • You’ll only receive the AUC BPA when an exam is scored at a three or lower.

  • Some indications may be retired or updated, so you may be prompted to update your personal preference list and/or order sets.

  • This doesn’t affect the acknowledgement reason.

  • Imaging guidelines display do not do alerts with an explanation and recommendation to defer a selected advanced imaging exam.
