Seeing through to quality

Jonathan Kruskal, our Chief of Radiology, points out out a useful website of the Radiology Society of North America, on which he has been working with the RSNA's Quality Committee. He notes:

This is a very useful site which includes resources for radiologists who want to get started with QI projects (very helpful for all of our residents now undertaking the QA elective); tools to help identify areas for improvement and tools for designing interventions, educational QA offerings (including the vertical daylong QI course at RSNA that Scott Gazelle from MGH and I am organizing this year); clinical guidelines and performance measures; and QA self assessment modules (SAM's).

I, too, note with some pride that the site links to four recent quality-related papers from Jonny's department (including those from Alex Bankier, Jacob Sosna and Bettina Siewert).

I think this is a great resource for QI projects.

Do you have any advice for an automotive industry professional looking to get into the healthcare field as an operational improvement consultant?
