The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care is reviewing the Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme Standards and Accreditation Model.
You are invited to:
- help shape these standards by identifying the quality and safety issues patients face accessing diagnostic imaging and the strategies that will provide patients with a safe and high-quality diagnostic imaging service
- provide thoughts on possible accreditation models for diagnostic imaging.
This is consultation is open until Monday, 2 May 2022.
Diagnostic imaging is critical for health professionals to identify the cause of a patient’s symptoms and inform subsequent health care decisions. In 2017 – 2018 health professionals performed more than 27 million diagnostic images funded under Medicare.
Visit our website to complete a survey, make a submission or register to participate in an online consultation forum.
Your information will inform the development of safety and quality standards and an accreditation model for diagnostic imaging. The draft standards will be released for consultation later this year.
