Committees Support RadSite’s Quality Benchmarking Activities for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Annapolis, MD, July 15th, 2020 —RadSite™, a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recognized accreditation organization promoting quality-based imaging, is seeking candidates to serve on its volunteer committees.
The committees and their focus are as follows:
- The MIPPA Accreditation Standards (MAP) Standards Committee develops new quality and performance programs and revises existing standards based on emerging best practices and new regulatory requirements. Its work addresses advance diagnostic imaging systems, including CT, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine.
- The Cone Beam CT Standards Committee develops standards for Cone Beam CT imaging systems, including dental, ENT, maxillofacial, orthopedics, and podiatry specialty areas.
- The Accreditation Committee oversees RadSite’s accreditation activities for imaging facilities and systems.
Volunteers from a broad cross section of the healthcare industry are sought for these 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 promote quality and performance-based imaging,” said Mark Casner, RadSite’s Accreditation Committee chair. “Committee volunteers are instrumental in enhancing our standards, accreditation processes, 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 support a program that helps imaging facilities improve their quality and safety,” said Mark Hiatt, MD, radiologist and member of the RadSite Standards Committee. “RadSite identifies emerging trends in imaging to ensure they are addressed by its accreditation programs.”
Another committee member, Stephen Permison, MD, is the former medical director for the National Practitioner Data Bank. “My participation in several RadSite Committees over the years has given me the opportunity to directly shape best practices to help ensure patients in communities across the nation receive high quality and safe imaging,” he said.
