BC Women’s Hospital has implemented a new feedback loop for radiologists. A memo from Dr. Chantal Mayer, Perinatologist from BC Women’s Hospital, regarding a change in the feedback loop for radiologists who refer patients to BC Women’s based on concerning ultrasound findings was sent in mid-November as a broadcast message. Also included was a form for ‘Validation of Health Care Provider Contact Information‘.
The intent is to use this as a method to provide feedback to facilities when a good call was made, when there was a missed or wrong diagnosis, or also when the radiologist was not sure if finding was significant (or not) and/or what to do about it. These can then be reviewed within the facility for the purpose of “QA activities”, if so desired.
