Future success will hinge on a radiology department's ability to deliver "high-value imaging" services that advance the hospital's business priorities in a risk-based payment environment. The webinar will discuss "low-value imaging vs. high-value imaging," identify priorities for radiology under healthcare reform, and share best practices to evaluate and improve the quality and safety of services. Teri Yates, Founder and Principal Consultant of ARA, will host the webinar.

Ms. Yates is a seasoned leader with more than 25 years of professional experience in the healthcare industry and 16 years as a senior manager in radiology. She has worked in the outpatient imaging, radiation oncology, hospital radiology and physician practice spaces. She is a leading expert on radiology peer review and speaks frequently about the need for standardized performance assessment in radiology. 

"Hospital payers and accrediting organizations are now turning their attention to radiology," said Ms. Yates. "And they should, given its importance in the diagnostic process and impact on patients. It is essential that any weaknesses in the quality or safety of the service are identified and mitigated, which will make the radiology department more competitive under any payment scenario. Delivery of reliable, high value services is the new imperative in radiology."
