This week I cover the FANTASTIC news that CMS is delaying the penalty phase of the PAMA law that requires providers to consult with clinical decision support before ordering advanced imaging tests. The delay is for another year; perhaps someone will wake up and kill this awful thing before it drains more money from the system.
I also cover an interesting article about the strain on primary care caused by COVID and then a different article about how Duke is partnering with One Medical for primary care services. Both issues have Health IT implications. Those articles and more on this weeks CMIO News to Know.
