The purpose of this session is to focus on the mitigation of clinical and medicolegal risk related to performance of procedures through sectional, departmental, and institutional efforts and resources. Since almost all radiology subspecialists perform procedures, the session directly impacts the practice of both interventional radiologists and diagnostic radiologists, and it provides information relevant to radiology technologists and nurses. It provides a broad perspective regarding the contribution of procedure-related complications to institutional and departmental risk. It also reviews morbidity and mortality cases that impact both diagnostic radiology practice as a result of missed findings and IR practice as a result of issues of recognition, response, communication, documentation, and follow-through.
Describe bundled payment models potentially applicable to radiology practices.
Examine sundry stakeholder interests and needs in a manner that optimize the success of new payment models designed to coordinate patient care.
