About The Meeting
For over 30 years, Economics of Diagnostic Imaging has been the premier venue in the US for helping radiologists succeed as the landscape for health care changes. 2020 is a very important year for us. Currently, there are threats of reimbursement cuts to pay for E/M codes and continued regulatory challenges from MACRA and MIPS. Perhaps more importantly, the next Federal election has the potential to upend the current practice of radiology. On the private side, corporatization of radiology as well as consolidation of insurance companies and hospital merger activity is re-creating the US health care market in the direction of oligopsony and oligopoly. Meanwhile, changes in IT, notably AI will also be important disruptors of radiology practice.

This is the premier US meeting for participants to learn from leading experts and from each other about cuttingedge issues that face radiology and more importantly to build solutions that will allow us to succeed in the face of these challenges.

Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily designed to educate radiologists, radiology business management executives, hospital CEOs, CFOs, board members and other key hospital administrators as well as technical directors of radiology departments, reimbursement experts, corporate executives, attorneys and sophisticated health care investors.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Understand current and anticipated Federal regulatory changes for diagnostic imaging.
  • Prepare for Federal impacts on radiology from the upcoming election.
  • Analyze the current waves of corporatization, consolidation and M and A activity in healthcare and their impacts on our practices.
  • Anticipate the impact of disruptive technology especially AI on your practice and learn to be the disruptor rather than the disrupted.
  • Develop novel forms of value in your practice or department.
  • Benchmark your practice against other leading practices on multiple metrics.
  • Receive DC insider briefings on political changes, coding changes and quality metrics.
  • Diagnose burnout and how to prevent it from affecting you and your practice.
  • Examine the ins and outs of going through group mergers and of being sold to a hospital or corporation.
  • Prepare for the next waves of change in the academic and private sectors.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
This program is planned and organized by Educational Symposia, a leader in continuing medical education since 1975.
