2019 Education Opportunities for Healthcare Leaders and for Professionals Who Support Quality and Safety Initiatives in Radiology Settings

A Special Message for Radiology Leaders and Professionals Who Lead and Support Quality and Safety Initiatives in Radiology


Dear Colleague,

Quality and safety initiatives will help accelerate and drive Radiology’s clinical transformation as we continue the transition from volume to value.  We invite you to join us to learn about strategies to address some of the most important quality and safety challenges and opportunities in radiology, including:

  • How to improve patients experience of care
  • How to assess and improve risk of burnout and wellness in your workforce
  • Learn how to harness the potential impact of Artificial Intelligence in the short, medium and long term to improve quality and safety
  • How to capture, assess, and design interventions to improve your practice by identifying the myriad of daily events that fall short of optimal healthcare delivery and experience of care for patients
  • How to plan, implement, and assess impact of next generation peer learning programs
  • How to address imaging clinical decision support regulations of Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) by understanding its requirements, potential benefits and risks
  • How to structure governance to enable quality and safety
  • How to identify, design and implement intervention t reduce unwarranted variation in your practice. We will use case examples to illustrate how improvement initiatives can reduce/eliminate unwarranted variation in imaging protocols, report templates, follow up recommendations and language used to convey diagnostic uncertainty in radiology reports, among other topics
  • How simple effective innovations using technology can eliminate preventable harm in healthcare broadly and enable patients to makes informed choices

We invite you to join us for this exciting and timely program and look forward to meeting you.
