Protecting Access to Medicare Act
WakeRad UNC REX was an early adopter of the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) that requires referring providers to consult appropriate use criteria prior to ordering advanced diagnostic imaging services – CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and PET – for Medicare patients.
Using the link above, we offer free access to ACR AC information similar to other tools that integrate with EHR applications. The WakeRad UNC REX scheduling and billing team, in addition to our radiologists and physician liaisons, are also resources to ensure you have easy, actionable access to clinical decision support.
Does your EHR comply with PAMA?
By using the ACR resources, you may find that your EHR or other ACR tools (Advanced Practice Providers AUC resources or How PAMA affects orders for Imaging) will help your organization comply with PAMA. If it does NOT and you need assistance with a solution, please complete the below form or contact our WakeRad UNC Rex Healthcare Liaison team at 919-788-7908.
