Committees Support RadSite’s Quality Benchmarking Activities for Diagnostic Imaging
RadSite™, a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)-recognized accreditation organization promoting quality-based imaging, is seeking candidates to serve on its Advisory Board, Accreditation Committee and Standards Committee.
- The Advisory Board oversees the strategic direction of RadSite and oversees the RadSite Committees.
- The Standards Committee develops new quality and performance programs and revises existing standards based on emerging best practices and new regulatory requirements.
- The Accreditation Committee oversees RadSite’s accreditation activities for imaging facilities and systems.
Volunteers from a broad cross section of the health care industry are sought for both committees, including imaging providers, health care professionals, consumer representatives, business experts, employer representatives, association executives, and government officials.
“Our key committees support RadSite’s mission to develop and promote quality-based standards and practices in imaging across the country,” says Eliot Siegel, MD, RadSite’s Chief Technology Officer, Advisory Board Member, and Standards Committee Chair. “Committee volunteers are instrumental in enhancing our standards, accreditation process and research activities, and we are honored to attract such a variety of experts willing to dedicate their time to this important endeavor.”
Current volunteers explain the value of serving on a RadSite committee – especially as it pertains to their role in advancing imaging standards and patient safety industry-wide.
“It has been rewarding to apply my industry knowledge and experience to a program that helps imaging facilities improve their processes, performance, quality, and safety,” says Teresa M. Treiger, RN-BC, a member of the RadSite Accreditation Committee.
Another committee member and RadSite’s Chief Physicist Officer, Phillip W. Patton, PhD, reports, “My participation in the RadSite Advisory Board and Standards Committee has given me the opportunity to directly shape best practices that help ensure patients in communities across the nation receive high quality and safe imaging.”
