This session will focus on the evolving world of accountable care and value-based arrangements, highlighting trends that will guide strategy for radiology groups seeking to thrive in a rapidly changing environment. The imperative and theoretical framework for accountable care arrangements, including the Triple Aim, will be supplemented by specific discussion of how value-based payment models work, from the perspective of ACO leadership.
