The articles below were written by RCG Principal in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital faculty and colleagues. This series has endeavored to direct the thinking and mind-set of radiologists to embrace the ACR’s Imaging 3.0 strategic initiative through the concept of the imaging value chain. This vision was in response to the complex and uncertain changes a foot in healthcare policy, delivery, and reimbursement. A fundamental tenet of healthcare reform is the move from a transactional fee-for-service model to one that is value driven and focused on patient outcomes—the “volume-to-value” paradigm. In response, the healthcare profession has yet to fully understand, grasp, and reengineer its workflow, but Imaging 3.0 serves as a roadmap for radiologists to gear their businesses toward delivering better value.
