Recent Joint Commission 'Revised Requirements for Diagnostic imaging Services' (USA) expect more from hospitals concerning radiology dose. Effective July 1st, 2015, hospitals must track, record, and improve X-ray dose performance against external benchmarks. In Europe, new regulations are expected to be in plave by 2018. Failure to meet these standards may have potential repercussions, including accreditation risk and associated revenue loss.
Conducting a gap analysis is a key step in developing and improving your dose management program to assist your organization in complying with Joint Commission requirements.
We have developed a useful tool to help you compare your current practices against these new requirements and define corrective action.
