Radiology Read Quality Assurance Peer Review Program

NDI offers a Radiology Read Quality Assurance Peer Review Program to our customers. This telemedicine-based system for routine image interpretations is cost-effective. NDI’s peer review program for our teleradiology customers provides provides access to quality assurance and peer review services.

The NDI peer reviews plays an indispensable role in radiology image interpretation quality assurance (QA) programs. NDI peer reviews assess the performance of radiologists in diagnostic accuracy, which is closely related to health outcomes. NDI physicians understand how essential it is that peer review and feedback directly reach the primary reporting radiologist.

Peer review in radiology means an assessment of the accuracy of a report issued by another radiologist. Inevitably, this involves a judgement opinion from the reviewing radiologist. Peer feedback is the means by which any form of peer review is communicated back to the original author of the report.

A widely used quality assurance methodology in radiology is the RADPEER program of the American College of Radiologists.

Quality assurance is the key component of modern radiology. A telemedicine-based quality assurance system helps to make quality control more accessible and objective. The goal of NDI’s Radiology Read Quality Assurance Peer Review Program is to improve the overall performance by recognizing unperceived findings on diagnostic studies and identifying opportunities for improvement.

Radiology peer review is essential to obtain good quality assurance for any business. Hospitals and IDTF’s have to maintain a peer review program for ACR or Jcaho accreditation. Quality assurance programs should be utilized to learn and improve your efficiency. We here at NDI pride ourselves in utilizing the American College of Radiology (ACR)  Radpeer program for our peer review.  Follow this link to obtain more information on the utilization of this unique program at: http://www.acr.org/Quality-Safety/RADPEER.

The instructions for participation can also can be found at: http://www.acr.org/~/media/ACR/Documents/PDF/QualitySafety/Radpeer/GeneralInstructions.pdf

Our administrator maintains records for our doctors peer review as well as our centers reporting for their peer review.

Our radiologists are given studies every month to review their peer’s interpretations.  Radiologists viewing their peers interpretations help sharpen their own skills and knowledge, which, benefits our radiologists credentialing processes.

Diagnostic imaging lets doctors look inside human and animal bodies for clues about a medical condition. A variety of machines and techniques can create pictures of the structures and activities inside the body. The type of imaging a doctor uses depends on the symptoms and the part of your body being examined. Ultrasonography is a popular diagnostic imaging tool that looks inside a dog or cat’s body via the use of sound waves.

ACR Accreditation is recognized as the gold standard in medical imaging. The ACR offers accreditation programs in CT, MRI, breast MRI, nuclear medicine and PET as mandated under the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) as well as for modalities mandated under the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). Accreditation application and evaluation are typically completed within 90 days.

The ACR has accredited more than 39,000 facilities in 10 imaging modalities. They offer accreditation programs in Mammography, CT, MRI, Breast MRI, Nuclear Medicine and PET, Ultrasound, Breast Ultrasound and Stereotactic Breast Biopsy.

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) accredits educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry.

The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) provides the structure and resources you need to develop and operate a high-quality breast center. Programs that are accredited by the NAPBC follow a model for organizing and managing a breast center to facilitate multidisciplinary, integrated, comprehensive breast cancer services.

Get information from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) about their requirements for accreditation of advanced diagnostic imaging suppliers, here.

The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) is a nonprofit, nationally recognized accrediting organization. The IAC was founded by medical professionals to advance appropriate utilization, standardization and quality of diagnostic imaging and intervention-based procedures.

The IAC is a nonprofit organization in operation to evaluate and accredit facilities that provide diagnostic imaging and procedure-based modalities, thus improving the quality of patient care provided in private offices, clinics and hospitals where such services are performed.

With a 30-year history of offering medical accreditation to facilities within the U.S. and Canada, IAC is also now offering accreditation in international markets. The IAC programs for accreditation are dedicated to ensuring quality patient care and promoting health care and all support one common mission: Improving health care through accreditation®.
