ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology


The Crossroads of Quality, Data, and Informatics in Radiology Practice and Payment Models


May 16, 2016 10:00am ‐ May 16, 2016 12:00pm

Description

The purpose of the session is to discuss healthcare delivery models evolving into ones that reward value over volume, and the compensation changes occurring for physicians and practice facilities. To date, there is little consensus on how radiologists and radiology departments will be addressed under new payment models.Increasingly, practice leaders will be required to establish contracts based on risk and value. Given the seeming lack of information regarding new payment models and how they are actually implemented, it is easy for radiologists to feel hopeless or powerless against the oncoming tide of change. This session will show how, using quality metrics, data, and informatics, radiology and radiologists can regain control of their financial stake in the patient encounter. It is anticipated that the tools discussed in this session will allow for better, more consistent reports, better communication of critical results and follow-up and will allow for a more proactive rather than reactive radiology practice. Developed in conjunction with the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define how quality metrics, data, and informatics can help radiologists provide value over volume and get compensated for it.
  2. Report how quality metrics, data, and informatics can be made accessible to the practicing radiologist.
  3. Underline radiology's place in the economic puzzle of bundles.
