Strategies for Radiologists in the Era of Healthcare Reform and Accountable Care Organisations: A Report From the ACR Future Trends Committee
This white paper, published by the American College of Radiology (ACR), presents preliminary recommendations from the ACR on radiologist involvement in accountable care organisations (ACOs).
Radiologists can provide timely and quality image interpretation as well as additional value and cost-effectiveness to the imaging portfolio of the ACO.
The implementation of these services may pose challenges to radiologists as the approach needs to change from productivity based on number of examinations interpreted to productivity based on the ability to provide cost-effective care.
