Consultant services in quality assurance and risk management.Appl Radiol. 1988 Nov; 17(11):23, 26.AR
The JCAHO has implored clinical department chairpersons and managers to institute ongoing systems for measuring and tracking quality review. The QA process should involve many individuals in the department. In some cases, it is useful to hire independent quality review contractors. Peer review, an important component of quality review and risk management, raises liability concerns that may warrant special legal advice.
