AHRA: New CRAs announced, upcoming exams in March
The American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) announced this week that 65 percent of the 51 radiology administrators who took the October 31 Certified Radiology Administrator (CRA) examination received a passing score and are now CRAs.
According to AHRA, there are currently over 475 CRAs nationwide.
The CRA is a certification program for radiology administrators and is administered by the Radiology Administration Certification Commission of the AHRA. The CRA program is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance and recognize administrators who demonstrate knowledge essential to the practice of radiology management.
Development of the CRA exam was supported by a grant from Kodak Health Imaging
