Project Management of Quality Improvement in Radiology

Abstract

Why should you care about Radiology?  Radiology is the medical discipline that uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat diseases within the bodies of animals and humans.  It impacts us all, whether or not we work in life sciences. For example:

  • Have you ever had a broken bone? Then you know about X-ray Radiography or Computed Tomography (CT).
  • Have you ever been pregnant?  Then you know about Ultrasound.
  • Have you ever had an internal disease? Then you know about Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
  • Perhaps you or a loved one have had cancer? Then you know about Nuclear Medicine and Positron Emission Tomography (PET). 
Value-based Care and Quality Improvement in healthcare have become the principal goals for many healthcare providers, mainly in response to the U.S. Healthcare Act of 2015. This Act requires payment reimbursement to healthcare providers be tied to the quality of care; it rewards healthcare & medical institutions financially based on efficiency and effectiveness - or penalizes for lack thereof.  Radiology plays a vital role in value-based healthcare, and therefore has significantly grown in importance.

On Thursday November 18, 2021, 7 to 8pm, Dr. Reza Tehrani presents: “Project Management of Quality Improvement in Radiology”. In this session, you will learn about quality control and quality improvement projects, using radiology as a specific application example. You will understand the concepts of:

  • Measuring efficiency and effectiveness
  • How Quality Control (CQ) and Quality Improvement (QI) encompasses four different areas: 1- People, 2- Policies & Practices, 3- Processes & Procedures, 4- Technology & Communications.
  • How to prioritize QC and QI projects, e.g., What factors do you measure? What tools can you use?
Learning Objectives

  • Understand how project management can drive quality improvement initiatives, using the medical discipline of radiology as a specific application example.
  • Understand how can a QI project outcome’s efficiency and effectiveness can be measured, and multiple quality projects prioritized, using the medical discipline of radiology as a specific application example.
  • Learn about approaches in radiology QC and QI initiatives.
