Studies have found that an estimated 10% of patients self-report as being penicillin allergic but 9 out of 10 of those patients reporting a penicillin allergy are not truly allergic. Inaccurate diagnoses of a penicillin allergy can adversely impact medical costs for both patients and healthcare systems. Patients labeled penicillin-allergic have a threefold increased risk of adverse events. Correctly identifying those who are not actually allergic can improve antibiotic prescribing and combat the risk of super-bugs by allowing patients access to safer, less toxic antibiotics.

On Oct. 3, Guthrie is going live in Epic with ACR Select imaging decision support. ACR Select utilizes evidence-based appropriate use criteria (AUC) to determine if an imaging order is appropriate based on the patient’s age, gender and reason for exam. This change is in response to upcoming CMS mandates for AUC for PET CT, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine procedures for technical reimbursement. This change will assist providers in ensuring high quality imaging care to improve patient outcomes and decrease costs.
