    Clinical decision support can be viewed from two perspectives: self-administration by adherence to evidence-based guidelines, a process that can be standardized through the use of decision-support software; and utilization management by a third party, often also using decision-support software.

    Mark Hiatt, MD, makes a case for utilization management by a third party. In a scientific session on the use of informatics to provide clinical-decision support, he presents a lesson in economics.

    Hiatt, the chief medical officer of HealthHelp, a Houston-headquartered radiology benefits management company, will discuss how both macroeconomic theory and actions of a specialty benefits management company can lead to millions of dollars of cost savings by limiting inappropriate and/or redundant diagnostic imaging procedures.

    Either method yields results: an approximate $100 million in savings over a five-year period.
