The present article is devoted to systematization of methodological bases, significance and possibilities of clinical audit in quality management of medical care. In particular, the application possibilities, strengths and weaknesses of various models of clinical audit in the field of radiation diagnostics are presented, and a model of the patient-oriented model is proposed. Developed and widely applied in the world practice, the standards in the healthcare sector (GCP, GLP, CMP, GNP) and the creation of quality systems on the ISO 9000 series confirmed the need for transforming approaches to health care. However, the rapid transition to work within the framework of standardized high-level systems requires a drastic change in the existing activities of clinics, which often cannot be performed without the infusion of a significant amount of additional resources. The consequence of this problem is that most clinics keep their work unchanged and this leads to low quality of medical services, medical errors, unreasonable diagnostic procedures. Thus, the imperfection of the existing mechanisms for monitoring the quality of care and the difficulties in moving to a standardized work determine the relevance of the selected study.
