The goal of the relocation assessment process is to ensure patient and staff safety while streamlining the accreditation activities required of the diagnostic service.
To be eligible for a relocation assessment, there can be no significant change in technical staff, administrative or medical leadership, or the scope of services provided. Equipment upgrades or replacements are permitted once the required acceptance testing procedures are completed.
The relocation assessment process requires an on-site assessment and distance evidence review before patient services are provided. Additional information about the relocation assessment process can be found here.
