Patient safety and well-being is always our top priority

The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 authorized the creation of Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs) to
improve the quality and safety of U.S. healthcare delivery. The Patient Safety Act encourages clinicians and healthcare organizations to voluntarily report and share quality and patient safety information without fear of legal discovery. Aris is one of only a few radiology groups actively participating in a PSO.

In addition, Aris participates in three patient safety programs endorsed by the American College of Radiology:

Image Gently® Campaign – an initiative of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging focused on radiation protection in the imaging of children
Image Wisely® – a program of the American College of Radiology, the Radiological Society of North America, the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists focused on reducing public exposure to ionizing radiation from medical imaging
Choosing Wisely® program – an effort to promote conversations between physicians and patients to help patients choose care that is necessary as supported by evidence, not duplicative of tests or procedures already received, and free from harm
