Much more than a minimum bar to meet, standardization is our foundation for elevating the level of care and outcomes for all patients.
No matter one’s profession, expertise, or experience level in a given field, standardization sets a baseline of knowledge we can all understand. By uniting a community around a set of standards, we find something we all agree upon: a place where everyone can find a starting point for their commitment and performance.
For sonographers like myself, standardization lives both closely and at a distance: When we hold ourselves to a high level of performance, each practitioner seizes the opportunity to not only enhance the immediate experience of their patient but elevate the understanding of care in our global community.
