I’ve worked with Jim for several years in his role as chair of our Committee on the Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (HOPPS). He’s also a leader in our digital community with more than 3,000 Twitter followers (@Jim_Rawson_MD).
Jim explained the commission’s first steps, addressed the ways in which patient experience is increasingly tied to reimbursement and told us how he responds when people say radiologists should “just stay in the reading room.“
And please, share your thoughts below on how you think radiology should approach patient-centered alternative payment models.
