Abstract

Change is sweeping the healthcare industry and the consensus of one group of radiology leaders is that they must not watch passively. Members of AHRA discussed this and several important topics during the inaugural AHRA-GE Healthcare Annual Summit. Attendees explored challenges facing healthcare: demographic shifts in patient and workforce populations, declining reimbursements, policy developments in Washington, DC, rising consumer choice, pricing pressure, and others. Attendees also discussed innovations in imaging technology that can improve patient care and advances in information technology that can help deliver the productivity improvements on which future prosperity depends.
