Strategic Radiology promotes continuous quality improvement through the development of a culture of quality that emphasizes transparency, communication, and patient safety in medical imaging.
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.
Optimal staffing is a challenge for practices of all sizes—even large teleradiology companies struggle to provide subspecialized interpretations where they are needed. Our collaborative environment helps member groups of all sizes to extend the hours and depth of subspecialized coverage for their patients, referring physicians, and hospital partners.
To support member subspecialization, we provide a preferred vendor that adheres to a high level of quality control; and we facilitate cross-coverage among members where possible.
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.
