Quality improvement—a core Strategic Radiology value

Strategic Radiology promotes continuous quality improvement through the development of a culture of quality that emphasizes transparency, communication, and patient safety in medical imaging. 

Patient Safety Organization

Strategic Radiology operates the first Patient Safety Organization (PSO) listed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) on June 19, 2013, that is dedicated to improving medical imaging through the sharing of data and best practices in a sheltered environment that enjoys strong Federal confidentiality and privilege protections.

Twice-annual Quality and Executive Education

Twice a year, radiologists, practice executives, and employees dedicated to quality-improvement gather to attend educational Summits with CME education. SR member practices may send an unlimited number of people, and some groups have used these events to help train quality operatives.


Before joining Strategic Radiology, we were engaged in quality improvement, but we didn't have an overarching quality program. Once we joined, we saw what other groups were doing, and we were inspired to have a dedicated program within our group.
