RadSite™, a national leader in the certification and accreditation of diagnostic imaging systems, and now an official accrediting body as designated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), is seeking board and committee nominations to support the organization’s quality benchmarking activities. RadSite’s programs help assess, track and report imaging trends in an effort to enhance imaging procedures and outcomes.
“RadSite’s quality benchmarking activities incorporate key process and outcome measures, with the ultimate mission of improving image quality and reducing patient radiation dose,” reports Cherrill Farnsworth, RadSite Advisory Board chair. “The additional peer review by qualified third-party representatives will further enhance RadSite standards and its research activities.”
According to Garry Carneal, JD, MA, RadSite president & CEO, “It is exciting to see the growing community of volunteers who are invested in promoting patient safety in the imaging arena. As part of our mission, RadSite needs input from a wide range of stakeholders to critique and monitor our programs.” Mr. Carneal is a nationally known expert in innovative accreditation program development.
