Strategic Radiology Establishes Patient Safety Organization

Creation of PSO enables SR to deliver world-class patient safety on a national scale.

March 8, 2013 – Strategic Radiology (SR) announced today that it has taken the necessary steps to establish a Strategic Radiology Safety Organization LLC, a Patient Safety Organization (PSO), by seeking formal certification from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The PSO is supported by all 15 member groups and is the first to be established by radiologists. This organized and collaborative effort will serve to facilitate the exchange and evaluation of clinical and quality data to help improve patient care in the regional markets served by SR members and beyond. Radiology industry veteran Lisa Mead, RN, MS, CPHQ, has been retained to direct the operations of the PSO and to leverage the collective experience found within SR membership to create a safety organization that can serve as a national model.   READ MORE    http://www.strategicradiology.org/pdf/030813_strategic_radiology_pso.pdf
