Case Studies: Distributed Radiology Spurs Quality and Efficiency
With multiple contracts for radiology coverage and an arduous quality assurance program, pulling records for case reviews was often a complicated process for WCH’s radiology department. These challenges often came to a head during Joint Commission inspections, so WCH partnered with Envision Physician Services to improve overall quality of their radiology services by streamlining and simplifying operations.
Envision recognized that optimized reporting and a more powerful quality assurance program were key to bolstering WCH’s confidence for Joint Commission inspections.
