DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Less than 30 days after the Sapheneia Scannerside partnership announcement, the two companies bring the first single-source solution for CMS Lung Screening, ClearCT™ Lung to market.
On November 10, 2014, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved CT lung cancer screening for Medicare recipients. Part of the radiology imaging center eligibility criteria include Low Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) of less than 1.5 mSv and the collection and submission of data to a CMS-approved national registry. ClearCT Lung provides a simple and affordable solution for radiology imaging centers to meet these criteria.
William Moore, MD co-founder of Scannerside, a practicing Radiologist and Director of two lung cancer screening programs for the State of New York commented, “We wanted to create a simple solution for radiologists that could be immediately implemented, protect the patient population and meet the criteria for reimbursements to radiology imaging centers. ClearCT Lung effectively addresses these goals.”
Sapheneia CEO, Paul Stashick confirmed, “We are proud to offer ClearCT Lung implementation for as little as $999/month within current SaaS models. Our new SaaS model, for all of our product lines, greatly reduces the capital deployment requirements that facilities need to meet the dynamic changes in reimbursement regulations. ClearCT Lung is only one of our many new proprietary technologies built on an entirely new platform with Scannerside.”
