Shared Imaging Earns The Joint Commission's Accreditation for Ambulatory Health Care
Date:12/4/2009

STREAMWOOD, Ill., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Shared Imaging, LLC, an independent provider of CT, MRI and PET/CT systems and service programs for hospitals and healthcare providers, is excited to announce it has received The Joint Commission's Accreditation for Ambulatory Health Care, a nationally-recognized, prestigious gold seal of approval for quality and safety in patient care. Shared Imaging accreditation is system-wide for its mobile MRI and PET/CT services. Mobile services clients will be listed individually as a Joint Commission accredited mobile site on QualityCheck(TM).

"Achieving accreditation demonstrates that Shared Imaging has voluntarily sought an independent evaluation of its compliance with state-of-the-art performance standards," says Michael Kulczycki, executive director, Ambulatory Care Accreditation Program, The Joint Commission. He continues, "System-wide accreditation was introduced in 2006 in response to customer needs, and allows all locations nationwide to receive accreditation at one time."

"This recognition supports our commitment toward high-quality patient care and building long term partnerships with customers," says Ray Stachowiak, President and CEO of Shared Imaging, LLC. "Attaining this voluntary accreditation provides customers with the assurance that we meet the same standards for quality care as those applied to hospitals."

The Joint Commission, an independent organization, is the primary accrediting organization in the health care industry. Its certification and accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality, reflecting an organization's commitment to meeting certain standards. The accreditation process is designed to help organizations continuously provide safe, high-quality treatment and services.

"We're extremely proud to receive this honor," says David Neally, Chief Operating Officer of Shared Imaging, LLC. "The program supports our compliance department's and team members' efforts to always providing the best quality care to communities, patients and customers so that we can constantly meet their evolving needs."

Established to encourage quality patient care in all types of freestanding ambulatory care facilities, the Ambulatory Care Accreditation ensures patient care is provided in a safe manner with a focus on operational systems critical to patient care.

To maintain its accreditation, Shared Imaging must undergo an on-site survey by a Joint Commission team that evaluates the organization and provides education to help the staff continue to improve the organization's performance.
