Ed Cronin, AHRA CEO: “Supporting and educating our membership, providing the tools they need to succeed has always been at the heart of AHRA’s mission. This exciting new tool, developed through the engagement of our membership, will set a new bar for timely industry benchmarking and comparative analysis. As we promised our membership when this project was announced in November 2011, this launch of AHRAdatalynx will revise how the medical imaging industry measures operations.”
Luann Culbreth, AHRA President: “Developed with input from membership, AHRAdatalynx will provide the tools that allow medical imaging leaders from across the nation the ability to utilize current data to benchmark their key success factors and compare them to their peers. The knowledge gained through this membership collaboration will help define the data analytics that will ultimately improve operational efficiency and patient care.”
Brian Baker, National Imaging Network President: “As the trusted source for benchmarking metrics in medical imaging, we are thrilled to have the AHRA and its membership represented as part of National Imaging Network. As an industry, the time has come to move away from dated information and produce current statistics. Supported by the axiom, ‘Measure it and it will improve,’ the vital measures produced through AHRAdatalynx and each member’s input will allow facilities to interact with data in the context of user defined peer groups. This will give each the ability to measure and know where to improve—something that’s never before been possible in medical imaging!”
