Independent Clinical Audit

DMC Imaging aims to be the virtual radiology reporting partner of choice, so our Independent Clinical Audit Service is tailored to your specific needs, rather than an off the shelf service.

DMCI is both ISO9001:2015 accredited ( Quality Assurance) and ISO 27001:2013 accredited (Information Security Management) showing that producing quality reports in a secure manner is at the heart of everything we do.

Our team of sub-specialist tertiary based Consultant Radiologists are able to review the work of your on-site Consultants, via our N3 data centre, utilizing its end-to-end encryption. They will offer succinct, useful evaluation of:

  • Reporting Accuracy – Represents the standard method for auditing the reports of radiological studies.

  • Clinical Utility – This identifies whether a particular report answered the clinical question or questions posed by the referrer (NB where this was stated on the request form).
  • Image Quality – This endeavours to provide constructive feedback to the client, in a standardised method for auditing the image quality of radiological studies.

Leaving you with actionable suggestions for both individuals and groups, enabling departmental improvements in patient outcome.
