Why Dose Management?

Is your patient radiation dose management in place?

If it isn’t, you could be setting yourself up for a serious game of catch-up.

The Joint Commission’s (TJC) decision in 2014 to regulate radiation dose management  is now a national discussion. Radiation exposure to the average American has increased by three times what it was in 1980.

This is primarily due to medical imaging procedures. Knowing the potential side effects of radiation dosage, it is critical to monitor a patient’s lifetime radiation dose. Hence, the requirement that all facilities under the TJC’s scope to begin dose monitoring.

Why is this necessary?  

Some of you may be thinking, I don’t fall under the scope of the new requirements; why does this apply to me?

This is becoming a national trend., Experts forecast that it will slowly become a requirement on a state level across the country, causing facilities to evaluate what they have in place and what they need to improve. Why not be ahead of the curve and prepare now?
