on January 27 | in News | by | with No Comments

January 9, 2015 – Originally posted on JointCommission.org
New and revised elements of performance (EPs) for accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals, and ambulatory health care organizations that provide diagnostic imaging services (including ambulatory care organizations that have achieved Advanced Diagnostic Imaging certification) have been finalized and will go into effect July 1, 2015. This set of standards was previously announced in January 2014 and would have gone into effect in July 2014. However, The Joint Commission determined that further research and additional revisions were needed.

 

The new and revised standards incorporate recommendations from imaging experts, professional associations, and accredited organizations about areas that must be evaluated to ensure the safe delivery of diagnostic imaging services. Please note that the proposed requirement that addressed minimum qualifications for technologists performing diagnostic computed tomography (CT) exams remains on hold pending additional research.
