Companies mentioned in this article: UBM Medica US

NORWALK, Conn., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Diagnostic Imaging, a leading online community for medical imaging professionals, explored the complex situation regarding measuring the radiologist's value in value-based payment models.

The shift from fee-for-service has left radiology at a crossroads in identifying how the radiologist's reimbursement is determined in the new payment model.

The article features insight from leaders in the field, who recognized the complexity of the radiologist's value:

    --  Radiology needs to find its space in the paradigm shift going on in all
        of healthcare, the transition from volume to value.
    --  There are no measures directly relevant to radiologists in terms of
        value-based purchasing in hospitals.
    --  The new model requires a level of partnership that is unprecedented for
        radiology.
