The Gold Standard in Imaging Accreditation
The ACR Accreditation team will soon unveil an updated accreditation database called ACRedit Plus with a user-friendly interface and enhanced features. ACRedit Plus will be available for all modalities (except radiation oncology) and includes several new features.
- Dashboard: A user-friendly dashboard allows you to see all modalities up for renewal as well as pending activities for your accreditation process. In addition, the menu navigates you straight to the task you need to accomplish.
- Mammography: Facilities with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) units will no longer have to apply as two separate units for Full-Field Digital and DBT. Instead, these units will apply as a single unit with modules. Facilities under this scenario will see an FDA-approved fee decrease over the current model as well as benefit from the more streamlined process.
- Breast MRI: The Breast MRI Accreditation Program will become a module under the MRI Accreditation Program. Facilities that are currently accredited for Breast MRI will apply under the MRI Accreditation Program at the time of renewal. This will result in lower fees as well as the benefit of the more streamlined process.
- Nuclear Medicine and PET: Participants in our Nuclear Medicine and PET Accreditation program will see a change in the structure of their invoices. Currently, the invoice reflects a facility fee along with separate module-based fees per unit. In the new system, the facility fee will become part of the first unit fee and will not be displayed as a separate facility fee line item.
- Prostate Cancer Designation: A new ACR Prostate Cancer MRI Center Designation will be available to distinguish your site as a provider of safe, effective diagnostic care for prostate cancer patients.
- Lung Cancer Screening Designation: An improved and streamlined application process for the ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center Designation will be available for both new and renewing applicants.
As part of the ACR’s ongoing commitment to enhancing our systems and protecting accreditation data, the new system will also institute a single sign-on (SSO) technology. The login enhancement, called ACR Login, employs technology from SSO market leader Okta that enables users to enter their login credentials one time on a single page to access all their ACR Login applications.
Certain ACR Login applications, such as ACRedit Plus, will require Multifactor Authentication (MFA). MFA necessitates users entering an additional piece of information when logging in for enhanced data security, making it harder for user accounts to become compromised. Existing accredited facilities will be contacted with additional information about the ACR login functionality closer to the launch of the new ACRedit Plus system.
