Achieving radiation dose compliance in a single department, let alone multiple sites, can be a daunting and arduous task. Traditionally this is costly and lengthy, requiring the expertise and extensive man hours from a medical physicist, radiology director, lead tech, patient safety officer and IT.

Carondelet Health Network set out with the goal to achieve CT dose compliance as efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible across its three hospitals and four outpatient centers. By utilizing a deep-learning and cloud-based solution, Carondelet was able to achieve dose compliance across its enterprise within months without the need to hire additional staff or spend extensive time mapping protocols. Today, it has reduced its dose alerts by two-thirds and is actively exploring how to improve image quality and expand into fluoroscopy procedures to stay ahead of anticipated compliance changes.

Join us in this webinar to learn how to effectively achieve Joint Commission radiation dose compliance across an enterprise and who best to partner with to improve patient safety and quality within your health care organization.

What You Will Learn:

  • Key criteria and questions to ask when looking to achieve dose compliance across an enterprise
  • How to achieve dose compliance without hiring a full-time medical physicist or patient safety officer
  • How to move beyond just radiation dose compliance to focus on imaging technique to further improve patient safety and quality across your enterprise
