ACR Annual Conference on Quality and Safety Offers Strategies for Radiology Practices

August 8, 2017 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) Annual Conference on Quality and Safety, scheduled for Oct. 13-14 in Boston, will help radiology practices add value through cost-effective service quality improvement.

“Radiology practices must take action to build a patient-centered quality infrastructure to remain successful,” said Jonathan B. Kruskal, Ph.D, chair of the ACR Quality Management Committee and conference program co-chair. The conference provides tools that result in greater operational efficiency and quality care delivery, he added.

“At this conference, attendees learn how to become meaningful contributors to quality improvement efforts,” said David B. Larson, M.D., MBA, program co-chair. Sessions are based on themes like organizational effectiveness, improvement methodology and compliance, he added.

The interactive program is designed for physicians, medical physicists, practice leaders, technologists, business managers, and hospital staff and administrators or others in the healthcare team.
