In the move toward quality-based reimbursement, improving the quality of echocardiography examinations is increasingly important. Staff with varying backgrounds and training result in greater variability of measurements and interpretations which must be monitored and reconciled to improve quality. The Echo Test and Teach software provides a proven, hands-on approach to satisfying quality assurance and improvement measures within an echocardiography laboratory.
Join Dr. Feigenbaum as he addresses the issue of reimbursement being tied to quality instead of quantity and demonstrates the features and usability of the Echo Test and Teach software.
This webinar is designed for medical directors, lab administrators, cardiovascular physicians, sonographers, and others with a primary interest and role in the field of echocardiography, especially as pertains to quality assurance and improvement programs.
By the end of this presentation, the viewer will be able to:
Recognize the effect of reimbursement for quality on echocardiography.
Identify the features of Echo Test and Teach that help improve measurements.
Demonstrate how Echo Test and Teach tracks and improves variability.
