ACR, Commission on Patient Experience, patient-centered radiology

July 7, 2015 - The new American College of Radiology (ACR) Commission on Patient Experience will produce resources to help radiology professionals provide and document patient and family-centered care. Chaired by James V. Rawson, M.D., FACR, of Augusta, Georgia, the commission will also enhance relationships with patient advocacy groups to ensure that patients have a voice in future radiologic care.

Specifically, the new commission will:

  • Develop recommendations on how radiology practices can enhance the experiences of patients and their families;
  • Provide information regarding how best to measure radiology patient outcomes;
  • Work with other ACR commissions to develop tools, metrics and policies that help members meet Merit-based Incentives Payment System and alternative payment model requirements; and
  • Work closely with the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Radiology Cares Campaign.
