Safety and Quality

Quality and safety are two of ADIA’s primary concerns and the organisation works to ensure they are built into diagnostic imaging at every level.

To that end, ADIA played a key role in the establishment of the Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme and continues to be involved through its participation on the Monitoring and Implementation Committee.

This scheme ensures that every diagnostic imaging practice which provides Medicare funded diagnostic imaging services operates safely and maintains a high standard of quality.

This accreditation takes in virtually every aspect of the practice, including ensuring the imaging equipment is appropriate and properly maintained, staff are trained to the required standards, patients receive the most suitable care and records are kept accurately.

To deliver accreditation in the best manner, ADIA has developed a partnership with QIP which is one of the three agencies approved to provide diagnostic imaging accreditation services.

ADIA ensures the model QIP uses to deliver accreditation services is in the best interest of patients and the profession.

Throughout this process safety is an absolute priority. Radiologists, radiographers and other professionals working in diagnostic imaging are trained in the most effective methods of maintaining the safety of their patients and themselves, at all times.
