ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2016VM47 - QI/QI Systems and Implementation: What We Need to Know

May 17, 2016 3:30pm ‐ May 17, 2016 5:00pm


The purpose of this session is to provide insight into the organization and implementation of quality improvement programs within the framework of practice, departmental and institutional structures, as well as achievement of compliance with external regulatory requirements. The course will focus on methodology to achieve physician participation in quality initiatives, work within the framework of institutional culture and bridge gaps that exist among clinical departments. The topics to be covered are highly relevant to physician leaders and others with administrative responsibility that encompasses quality. Providing value requires significant investment in the process of quality improvement, but it has the ability to better integrate radiology with clinical peers, demonstrate utility to the institution and improve patient care. Developed in conjunction with the Radiology Leadership Institute ®

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the economic, structural and cultural variables in the implementation of quality initiatives that must be considered for success.
  2. Describe principals of behavior that are applicable to individual and group performance.
  3. Select projects that are meaningful to all participants, including external regulators.
