Establishment of an Ultrasound Practitioner Healthcare Role
With the evolution of healthcare, the needs to raise patient care and the unnecessary exuberant costs, the establishment of an Ultrasound Practitioner would be beneficial to all parties involved in healthcare. Assessing, vetting and allowing for Expert-level Ultrasound Technologists to work in a midlevel, independent position would provide a high quality live assessment and interpretation of the patients study, alleviate error made from improper orders or interpretations due to limited data and save money with the reduction of repeat examination or incorrect examinations.
We are currently working towards the establishment of a Fellowship program and have been gaining support and momentum from peers and colleagues. Your support would stronger show the desire in numbers, in hopes that regulators will listen to "the people" and, at a minimum, trial out this program.
