“RadSite has always provided a true relationship-based process for working with our current and potential clients,” says Garry Carneal, RadSite president and CEO. “As we strengthen our leadership position in the accreditation field, we want to provide that same experience for MAP clients. This first webinar will allow providers to get to know us a little bit better, and to ask questions of key RadSite staff.”
The RadSite team will be available to anyone seeking a one-on-one follow-up conversation. According to Cherrill Farnsworth, RadSite’s board chair, “As imaging progresses, many providers are at a point where they are deciding if they should stay with their current accreditation vendor. We want to demonstrate why we are the top choice in imaging accreditation and that we are not only easy to work with, but have a true passion for what we do and function as a both business and educational partner.”
