Managing Future Shock: The Challenges and Opportunities for Radiology

Defined as “too much change in too short a period of time,” the term future shock accurately describes the current state of the radiology industry. As we head into 2014, practices are facing an array of disruptive factors that will require new ways of thinking and new strategies for managing operations. The transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 will expand the number of code by almost eight-fold along with greater documentation requirements, placing a strain on already tight resources. The focus on value-based reimbursement is dramatically increasing the number of ACOs, changing the way practices interact and expanding the demand for reporting transparency. And finally, the annual coding and compliance changes require more time and expertise to interpret and communicate in order to avoid audit exposures.

Despite these issues, a future shock environment also brings opportunity for practices that are ready to challenge the status quo. The key is in taking action today to proactively forge partnerships, gain knowledge and expertise and to prepare for the unexpected.

Learn how some practices are managing future shock and seeing results. Join us for a panel discussion lead by McKesson radiology experts: Keith Chew, senior consultant; Pat Free, vice president of radiology operations; Ron Jackson, vice president of business development and Joe Lineberry, chief compliance officer.
