Radiology Payment Systems: Present and Future

M. Fleming, MD, R. Duszak, MD, and K. Hentel, MD


Physician payment systems are transitioning quickly from history volume-based fee-for-service models to new value-based alternative payment models. In order to optimize their financial performance, radiology practices must succeed in both systems, often simultaneously. This course will highlight principles and strategies to optimally navigate this period of rapid change.
