ACR Encouraging Radiologists To Leverage Technology To Increase Their Visibility In The Healthcare System

Forbes (5/7) carries a Medidata article reporting that “diagnostic imaging is a critical component of the health care process, but in recent years interactions between radiologists and referring physicians have decreased, says Mike Tilkin, the chief information officer at the American College of Radiology (ACR).” The increase “in volume due to high demand for imaging and the efficiencies of digital imaging over film-based alternatives result in radiologists more likely to interact with referring physicians through electronic reports, than in a room discussing film together.” Thus, “with these changes, ACR is actively encouraging radiologists to leverage technology to increase their visibility in the health care system.”
