  • ”RadiologyInfo.org is a public information portal designed to support patient care and broaden public awareness of the essential role radiology plays in overall patient health care. Over the past 14 years, RadiologyInfo.org has evolved considerably to provide access to more than 220 mixed-media descriptions of tests, treatments, and diseases through a spectrum of mobile and desktop platforms, social media, and downloadable documents in both English and Spanish. In 2014, the RSNA-ACR Public Information Website Committee, which stewards RadiologyInfo.org, developed 3- to 5-year strategic and implementation plans for the website. The process was informed by RadiologyInfo.org user surveys, formal stakeholder interviews, focus groups, and usability testing.”

  • “Over the past year, visits to RadiologyInfo.org have increased by 60.27% to 1,424,523 in August 2016 from 235 countries and territories. Twenty-two organizations have affiliated with RadiologyInfo.org with new organizations being added on a monthly basis. RadiologyInfo provides a tangible demonstration of how radiologists can engage directly with the global public to educate them on the value of radiology in their health care and to allay concerns and dispel misconceptions. Regular self-assessment and responsive planning will ensure its continued growth and relevance.”

  • “However, participants expressed concerns that the language and images were too “doctor-centric” and expected a more “patient-centric” focus and reassuring tone. They expressed concerns about navigating and remaining oriented within the site and had difficulty interpreting some of the information categories. Participants requested that the site have a warmer look and feel, prioritization of topics of greatest interest to patients, more efficient access to content relevant to their queries, and integration of patient-friendly images and videos. Finally, they noted that RadiologyInfo.org did not always appear at the top of search results when participants generated their own search terms.”

  • “To evolve the site further and improve its outreach, the committee has pursued an active social media campaign. Our efforts on social media are primarily through the two leading platforms, Facebook and Twitter. To date the site has garnered more than 240,000 likes on its Facebook page and more than 3,000 followers on Twitter. Social media platforms allow direct and real-time connections with patients, something a website cannot accomplish. As this aspect of RadiologyInfo evolves, care must be taken to ensure that responses are quick and vetted for appropriateness.”
