CurveBeam Connect: Accreditation Options for Cone Beam CT Imaging
Garry Carneal, JD MA, is the President and CEO of RadSite, a CMS accrediting body for diagnostic imaging accreditation, medical management, and a healthcare policy expert.
Carneal helped develop more than 20 different accreditation programs for various healthcare specialties.
“There are different shapes and forms for accreditation. Part of my mission statement and value is to make sure Rad Site is efficiently and effectively doing an intervention to help an organization we’re accrediting get to the next level,” Carneal said.
Part of what Carneal calls “accreditation reimagined” consists of real-time measurement of imagining quality performance, leveraging AI and evaluating purchasing coalitions.
“The ultimate goal is to create a shared educational experience that is as effective as possible, but make sure imaging providers have the opportunity to get reimbursed for the services they provide and allow them to get back to their focus on population health,” he said.
Carneal said he works in conjunction with a community of experts in the field to develop, maintain and update Cone Beam CT imaging standards. Once the standards for Cone Beam CT imaging roll out, Carneal said some refinements may occur.
