CMS is inviting public comments on potential future regulations intended to improve the safety and quality of services furnished by Advanced Diagnostic Imaging (ADI) suppliers. ADI services include computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine services. Specifically, CMS seeks suggestions on potential improvements pertaining to personnel qualifications, infection control practices, quality improvement programs, image and equipment quality, patient safety, evidence-based research, and related topics. Although accreditation has been required for suppliers of the technical component of ADI services since January 1, 2012, CMS heretofore has relied on four accrediting organizations it selected to establish their own standards for quality and safety pursuant to the broad criteria under the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act of 2008 (MIPPA). It has been anticipated that CMS would initiate this move to establish national minimum standards for accreditation of ADI equipment. Comments may be submitted to until March 31, 2014.
