ACR2017VM01 - New Horizons for the Young and Early Career Physician

May 21, 2017 8:00am ‐ May 21, 2017 9:30am


The purpose of this session is to focus on a range of challenges and opportunities that Young and Early Career Physicians (YPS) face now and in the near future. From informatics to patient and family centered care, the breadth and depth of YPS involvement is limitless. The invited speakers are nationally renowned for their expertise in these topics and their ability to speak to the YPS audience.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the current and future landscape of radiology informatics and its relationship to radiologist workflow, data management, and value creation in radiology practice.
  2. Describe current and near term changes in radiology reimbursement and policy, especially in terms of the interplay of Imaging 3.0, the ACA, Clinical Decision Support, and downstream policy changes.
  3. Identify the essentials of Patient and Family Centered Care (PFCC), its relationship to radiology practice, and ways for radiologists, especially YPS, to practice PFCC as part of their daily jobs.
  4. Describe the meaning of Quality Improvement (QI), how to establish QI programs in one's practice, and the effect of MACRA on reporting of QI measures.
