Radiologist Need to Become Part of the Care Team

How do we get to value-based imaging? It’s important as an industry to figure out what value really is, and how we use the power of data to measure that value and incentivize these value-based paradigms to be rewarded for the value that we are providing.

Rasu Shrestha, M.D., previously the chief innovation officer at Pittsburgh-based UPMC—now chief strategy officer at Atrium Health—shares his perspectives on what's at stake for the imaging industry in the ongoing evolution of healthcare and the path forward toward value-based imaging. Within the healthcare industry, the ongoing transition from volume-based to value-based care and reimbursement it is having a profound impact on every area of the healthcare ecosystem. And while imaging and imaging informatics has traditionally been siloed from other areas of healthcare, among radiologists and imaging professionals, it is well understood that the movement from volume-based to value-based imaging is already underway.

During a webinar sponsored by the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), Dr. Shrestha laid out what was at stake for the imaging industry within the context of the move to value-based care and provided some context on where the imaging industry currently stands, and where it needs to go.

“How do we get to value-based imaging? It’s important as an industry to figure out what value really is, and how we use the power of data to measure that value and incentivize these value-based paradigms to be rewarded for the value that we are providing, and use it as our North Star,” Shrestha said during the presentation.
