ACR Learning Network

ACR Learning NetworkThe ACR Learning Network is a collaboration of organizations focused on improving the quality of patient care through the sustained use of improvement strategies. To join the Learning Network, organizations first participate in ImPower, a structured improvement program where multi-disciplinary teams learn and apply quality improvement tools, earn continuing education credits, and collaborate with peer institutions. Each improvement collaborative within ImPower is led by an expert radiologist and consists of a cohort of teams from organizations across the county, who work together to solve the same problem within their respective local environments. 

These are the ImPower improvement collaboratives and their goals:
