ACR analysis of peer reviewed literature, research study data, feedback from ACR membership and expert opinion led to the following gap: Physicians and other healthcare professionals consistently request up to date information on economic trends in radiology. Frequent requests include information on CPT/RUC activities including new and revised codes so that practices can maintain coding and billing compliance, as well as updates to overall Medicare Physician Fee Schedule payment trends so that practices can future plan and allocate resources appropriately.
1. Demonstrate understanding of trends in radiology reimbursement, and trends driving payments downwards.
2. Describe Medicare procedural changes leading to changes in coverage decisions at the local practice level.
3. Explore complexities of obtaining reimbursement for artificial intelligence applications used to complement radiology work flow.
