Continuing to Thrive in Academic Radiology Despite Decreasing Reimbursement
Current problems in diagnostic radiology
Decreasing radiology reimbursement is a major challenge faced by academic radiology practices in the United States. The consequent increased workload from reading more radiological studies can lead to job dissatisfaction, burnout and adverse impact on research, innovation, and education. Thriving successfully in an academic practice despite low reimbursement requires modification of radiology business models and culture of the practice. In this article, we review the financial and operational strategies to mitigate low reimbursement and strategies for thriving in academic radiology without burnout.
