As part of the Commonwealth’s Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme, Diagnostic Imaging Service Providers are required to be accredited against the Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme (DIAS) 3rd Edition Standards.
The Department of Health released the DIAS 3rd Edition Standards and a revised Guide on the 1 January 2016. All services undergoing accreditation or re-accreditation from the 1 January 2016 will be assessed against the new 3rd Edition Standards. Visit the DoH’s website for more information on the 3rd Edition Standards or speak to your QIP Client Liaison Officer.
The Standards are owned by the Department of Health (DOH) and provide a range of benefits to providers, including risk reduction, improved business efficiency and recognition from patients.
Two pathways are available to achieve accreditation against the Standards: Entry Level and Full Suite.
QIP takes an active role in supporting Diagnostic Imaging Service Providers on their accreditation journey.
