A radiologist whose group participates in the RADPEER™ program can select RADPEER™ as a PQI project. Participating physicians will receive a personalized PQI report which will provide comparison statistics (physician, group, all RADPEER™ participants) in six month intervals (to allow accrual of baseline and comparison data). Since this process involves collection of data over selected time periods, participants will initially need 6 months of RADPEER™ data to begin this project and should not submit an application prior to that. Please note - This can only be used as a project if there are discrepancies at either the Individual or Group level. If there are no discrepancies please choose another project.

Radiologists who wish to use RADPEER™ as a PQI project must submit the following to the ACR:

 Processing Fee of $50

 RADPEER™ Group ID number

 RADPEER™ Physician ID number

 A signed RADPEER™ Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) AGREEMENT affirming that the radiologist intends to use RADPEER™ as a PQI project. This includes confirmation from the Department Chair/Chief, since he/she will be participating in his/her performance improvement plan.

Upon receipt of the above items, the ACR will provide:

 Acknowledgement of PQI agreement and 6 month baseline PQI report

 Due date of subsequent PQI report (9 months from date of baseline report)

At completion of data collection (initial report and subsequent report for comparison), the radiologist will submit to the ACR:

 Signed RADPEER™ PQI Check List

 Baseline and Follow up PQI report

 Practice Improvement Plan (for any scores of 2b, 3 or 4)

If the radiologist has supplied the information listed above to the ACR, and has responded adequately to requests for any additional information, the radiologist will receive a letter documenting successful participation in this PQI project.
