Clinical Research Billing and Coding
Enrollment Verification Project     Audit IT 

In an effort to minimize clinical research billing errors related to enrollment the CRAO will be performing an audit of both MBECT and MiChart enrollment. In the near future you may receive an email requesting a verification of your study enrollment.  When you are selected for review and recieve the enrollment information we ask that you review and return the information as promptly as possible. Corrections required in MBECT will be the responsibility of the study team member, MiChart corrections will be completed by CRAO.   We appreciate your assistance with this project!  

New Bundle Created!

A new bundle has been created in MBECT for Imaging of Bone and/or Joint multiple areas.  You can locate the bundle by searching for Bone Scintigraphy.  Remember to also add the radiopharmaceutical/contrast to your billing calendar.
