The program “is designed to help leaders learn current business trends and get the most out of their practice in this rapidly changing healthcare environment,” he added.

“Working collaboratively, the ACR and RBMA offer radiologists and business managers critical examples of how to compete and succeed,” added Keith Chew, MHA, CMPE, FRBMA, program co-chair and past president of the RBMA.

Additionally, sessions will cover how to anticipate, adjust to and strategically position for new and emerging trends; explore practical strategies for maximizing reimbursements and patient engagement; examine news ways of implementing Imaging 3.0; and create an optimal care environment using cutting-edge information technology and service platforms.
