Action Alert

On Jan. 3, 2024, House Bill 1410 - Relative to Certain Professional Licenses was introduced to the New Hampshire General Court. HB 1410 proposes significant licensure reform, including repeal of the entire section of law related to medical imaging and radiation therapy. If licensure is no longer required, there will be no safeguards against inadequately educated personnel providing New Hampshire patients with medical imaging and radiation therapy care. 

In 2016, New Hampshire joined 36 other states to require medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals to adhere to appropriate licensure standards. Along with establishing the medical imaging and radiation therapy board, the Revised Statutes Annotated 328-J, set clear educational requirements for medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals in all health care settings. New Hampshire prioritized educationally prepared and clinically competent individuals performing medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures. It is imperative that New Hampshire does not regress and allow individuals who have not passed nationally recognized credentialing exams to perform imaging or therapeutic procedures using radiation. Whether a patient receives care in a physician’s office or a hospital, the quality and standards of care must remain high.   

HB 1410 will immediately and negatively impact patient and workplace safety and the high-quality health care New Hampshire patients deserve. ASRT and the New Hampshire Society of Radiologic Technologists adamantly oppose HB 1410. New Hampshire patients deserve high-quality health care provided by professionals who have met nationally recognized education and training standards.
