January 18, 2016 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) announced the release of the program schedule for ACR 2016 — The Crossroads of Radiology, which will deliver skill-building sessions that empower radiology professionals to deliver and document valued-based care. The ACR’s second annual all-member meeting will be held May 15–19 in Washington, D.C.

“Today’s radiology professionals have to adapt their skills and methods to new healthcare delivery models and better understand the patient experience. The diverse, flexible ACR 2016 program provides practical knowledge and the tools needed to transition to successful future practice,” said Cheri Canon, M.D., FACR, program committee chair. Attendees at all career stages will benefit from this comprehensive learning experience, she added.

ACR 2016 provides the forum to hear keynoter Ezekiel J. (Zeke) Emanuel, M.D., Ph.D., an architect of the Affordable Care Act and a leading practitioner shaping the future of healthcare. He will address “The Future of American Health Care: What Is the Role of Radiology?” ACR President David C. Kushner, M.D., FACR, will discuss the role of radiologists in more accountable patient- and family-centered care. Andrew DeLaO (also known on Twitter as @cancergeek), who has an extensive background in cancer services, designing healthcare experiences and connecting patient communities, will deliver the annual Moreton Lecture.

Special events include Capitol Hill Day, with exclusive meetings scheduled for members to bring the “Voice of Radiology” to elected officials; the Body MRI Boot Camp, a one-day version of the intensive practical course on body and pelvic magnetic resonance imaging offered at the ACR Education Center; and the Economics Forum.

Sessions are organized in nine Knowledge Pathways, with more than 100 hours of continuing medical education (CME) programming, including self-assessment modules (SAMs) and Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs (CAMPEP) and Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI) credits. Attendees will be able to customize a personal agenda, sampling educational content from Imaging 3.0, the RLI, the AIRP (American Institute for Radiologic Pathology) and the ACR Education Center.

The five-day meeting, which offers special sessions for residents, fellows and early-career physicians, will also provide the latest information about the Radiology Support, Communication and Alignment Network (R-SCAN), which assists medical professionals in fulfilling American Board of Radiology maintenance of certification (MOC) Part 4 requirements.
