COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Aug. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Reono Bertagnolli, A Medical Group, DBA Rely Radiology has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for Ambulatory Care Accreditation by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization's commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
Rely Radiology underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite review on August 13th and 14th. During the visit, a team of Joint Commission reviewers evaluated compliance with Teleradiology standards across several areas, including emergency management, environment of care, quality assurance, credentialing/privileging of physicians, leadership, and the rights and responsibilities of the individual.
The Joint Commission's standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, measurement experts, and patients. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help health care organizations measure, assess, and improve performance. The surveyors also conducted onsite observations and interviews while at Rely Radiology.
"As a private accreditor, The Joint Commission surveys health care organizations to protect the public by identifying deficiencies in care and by working with those organizations to correct them as quickly and sustainably as possible," said Mark Pelletier, RN, MS, The Joint Commission Chief Operating Officer, Accreditation and Certification Operations, and Chief Nursing Executive. "We commend Reono Bertagnolli, A Medical Group, DBA Rely Radiology for its continuous quality improvement efforts in patient safety and in quality of care."
