President’s Message: RadSite Certification Supports Smart Imaging Networks

Garry Carneal, JD, MA
RadSite President

Promoting quality is a mainstay of many accreditation programs in health care. However, quantifying the linkage between quality improvement and cost reduction can be difficult to document. RadSite is encouraged by yet another study from an independent firm’s recent research indicating that the RadSite Assessment Program™ (RAP) demonstrates a positive Return on Investment (ROI). Learn how this study illustrates the value that RadSite’s programs bring to patients, providers and facilities in the imagery field–both in terms of improved imaging quality and reduced costs.
