Mammography May Provide Opportunity For Expanded Use Of Bundled Payments In The Radiology Field, Researchers Say

DOT Med News (8/23, Dubinsky) reports, “According to a new study conducted by the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute, mammography may provide an opportunity for the expanded use of bundled payments in the radiology field,” researchers found. The article quotes Dr. Geraldine McGinty, vice chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors and a member of the Neiman Institute’s advisory board, who “said in a statement, ‘As the US health care delivery system transitions from FFS to value based payments, it’s important that we [radiologists] are at the table to ensure that our patients have access to high quality imaging.’” Dr. McGinty added, “Shaping payment policy to support that access is at the core of the ACR’s mission.”
