CareSelect Imaging Open Access Portal
The CareSelect Imaging Open Access Portal is a web version of NDSC's qualified Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (qCDSM) that enables the use of Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC). The intention of the Open Access Portal is to provide all ordering providers with access to clinical decision support (CDS), regardless of access to an EMR integrated CDS solution. The Open Access Portal enables providers to fulfill the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) legislative requirement that a CDS consultation must be done at the point of ordering for all high-tech imaging orders. The Open Access Portal does not use Protected Health Information (PHI) in any form.
