Recently, a team with the Radiology Partners Research Institute (RPRI) launched a study to explore if performance improvement initiatives implemented in a large, multi-state radiology practice successfully increased inclusion of best practice recommendations (BPRs) within the radiology report across the entire practice.
Focusing on BPRs related to asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysm, Dr. Upma Rawal, Dr. Jay Bronner, Jason Mitsky, Dr. Sameer Ahmed and Dr. Sheila Sheth published the piece in the Journal of the American College of Radiology. RPRI corresponding author Dr. Rawal shared that “After the implementation of the [quality improvement] initiative and training period, compliance tracking and monthly actionable scorecard reporting are powerful drivers for performance improvement. As with any successful change management program, constant and consistent feedback is vital to maintain performance.” The article calls attention to the extensive research and development that went into the reporting recommendations.
