AUGUSTA, Ga. – Georgia Regents Medical Center has earned national recognition for exemplary Patient- and Family-Centered Care practices in radiology. Health Imaging magazine has chosen the hospital as one of five recipients in the inaugural Imaging 3.0: Patient-Centric Imaging Awards.
The awards – developed in conjunction with the American College of Radiology – reinforce the importance of patient engagement in healthcare delivery and honor radiology groups for using imaging to improve quality and patient outcomes.
“Beginning with a mammography renovation in 2001, we’ve included patient advisors at the design table for all imaging improvements, including equipment purchases and installations. We’ve seen patient satisfaction scores improve, and we’ve become more efficient across the department as a result,” said Dr. James V. Rawson, Chief of Radiology at the medical center.
GRMC, an international pioneer in Patient- and Family-Centered Care, was featured nationally in PBS’s 2006 series “Remaking American Medicine” and in 2010 was named a national model in PFCC by the Picker Institute.
Other imaging award winners include Cincinnati Children’s Hospital; the University of Maryland and University of California; East West Health Centers/Invision Sally Jobe Breast Network; and Radiology Ltd. in Tucson, Ariz. The winning projects are published in the September/October issue and can be viewed online at HealthImaging.com.
