There were a number of subcommittees that were able to meet at ACEP16. We will bring you highlights from several of these subcommittees over the coming months. A subcommittee that was developed over the past year to meet an evolving need of the POCUS community is the System Wide Clinical Ultrasound Director Subcommittee (SWCUD). Individuals attending the meeting represented all stages in the development of a SWCUD from early interest to fully developed and operational directors.
During the meeting, there was overwhelming support for the development and writing of a ‘white paper’ that would address a number of the issues related to this type of position including: Machine Purchase and Standardization, Image Archiving and Workflow Solutions, Credentialing, Competency and Quality Assurance, Reimbursement, Billing and Compensation, Division Formation and Team Assembly, Education and Training. If you are interested in being involved in this subcommittee, please contact Robert Strony, MD.
