Baystate Ob/Gyn Earns Sixth Consecutive Accreditation
SPRINGFIELD — The physicians of Baystate Ob/Gyn Group Inc. announced that it has been awarded its sixth consecutive accreditation by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. A practice must reapply for accreditation every three years.
Baystate Ob/Gyn Group achieved this recognition by meeting rigorous voluntary guidelines set by the diagnostic-ultrasound profession. During the accreditation process, all facets of the ultrasound department were assessed, including the training and qualifications of physicians and sonographers, ultrasound equipment maintenance, documentation and record-keeping practices, quality-assurance methods, as well as the thoroughness, technical quality, and interpretation of the sonograms the practice performs.
“AIUM accreditation is an important indication of our commitment to providing comprehensive, high-quality healthcare that is accessible and convenient for the patient,” said Dr. Charlene Case, director of the Ultrasound Department at Baystate Ob/Gyn Group. “When necessary, our state-of-the-art ultrasound technology provides us with detailed images right in our own office that we can use as a component in the care of our patients. This technology, including 3-D and 4-D capabilities, is an irreplaceable clinical tool for our practitioners.”
