Radiology has seen major changes over the last two decades as the industry adapted to higher volume expectations. The Affordable Care Act is poised to transform the professional landscape again with increasing calls for compensation reform. A free hour-long online seminar from Regents Health Resources, Radiologists: Interpreting the Move to Value, will educate practitioners on how to position themselves for the changes ahead.
With imaging costs a major portion of national healthcare spending, radiology has been targeted for reimbursement reductions, utilization management, and provider risk assumption. Compensation models from the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPac) suggest that radiology compensation will still outstrip every other specialty even if radiologists are reimbursed 100% at Medicare rates. Participants can register for 1 of 2 sessions on November 19 or November 21, or visit Regents Health Resources for more information.
