Empowered #patientchat – Patients Included – In Radiology?

You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat as we discuss how radiology can include patients and become more patient-centered.

Patient-centered care (i.e., care organized around the patient), as defined by the University of Cincinnati Medical Centers Radiology Department, is a model in which health care providers partner with patients and families to identify and satisfy patients’ needs and preferences. They go on the explain that radiologists have traditionally been characterized as “doctor-to-doctor” consultant who spends most of the time in dark reporting rooms interacting with a computer screen only.

As medicine becomes more patient driven, radiology departments need to embrace this movement. One step in the right direction is The Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) and the ACR AC Patient Subcommittee’s Patient Summaries. These summaries are intended to help patients understand what tests are appropriate for their situation, and are designed to help ordering physicians and radiologists better communicate the reason they are requesting, or performing, a particular imaging test.

We will be joined by special guest, a diagnostic radiologist and RSNA representative,  Jennifer Kemp, MD, FACR, Vice President, Diversified Radiology of Colorado. Dr. Kemp is active nationally in the movement of ‘patient centered radiology’; she is an advocate for helping patients understand their imaging examinations and is passionate about making sure that each and every patient has the safest and most appropriate imaging examination to answer the question at hand. Dr. Kemp’s Care Philosophy is “Patient first in all that I do.”

We hope to see you Friday, October 5th on Twitter (or tchat.io/rooms/patientchat) at 10:00 am Pacific | 1:00 pm Eastern. Be sure to include the hashtag #patientchat in all your responses!

Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic Questions (T#):

T1: Why should hospitals and outpatient imaging centers focus on being patient-centered? #patientchat

T2: What are the dimensions of patient-centered care that are relevant to radiology departments? #patientchat

T3: What should be implemented? Describe the interventions that promote a patient-centered environment. #patientchat

T4: Now speaking to radiologists themselves. How can radiologists lead patient-centered care? #patientchat

T5: Do you have a good or bad example of patient-centered care in a radiology department? Describe your experience. #patientchat


Empowered Patient Chats (#patientchat) are held every other Friday at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern on Twitter and during the chat patients and advocates come to learn from each other and discuss topics of interest to empowered patients.
