As an early or mid-careerist seeking advancement, where do you go for opportunities to supplement your professional portfolio and enhance your skills? Considering the right academic foundation, participating in a relevant professional association, securing an advanced certification from an industry respected organization, and/or completing fellowship training in focused areas can prepare you to meet the challenges of the ever-shifting health care landscape; while securing your road to success every step of the way.

    This workshop, held in conjunction with the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR), is designed to teach practice administrators and other health care personnel how to construct a financial proforma for a new IR private practice. Participants will be taught the fundamentals of building a proforma (initial investments, projected revenue, operational expenses, depreciation, projected taxes, and net present value). Participants will also learn how to use the financial proforma as a tool to measure their budget variances from a year-to-year basis. Participants are expected to bring laptops and possess intermediate knowledge of excel formulas and budget creation.

During the session, a prepared list of topics will be distributed and shared. Attendees will get data-driven examples from speakers and your peers that could be applied to your situation. Come, connect, and learn what other executives are doing to meet the challenges faced at their practices. Plan to walk away with at least one example that you can use for your situation.

  • Operationalizing Interoperability Impact in Your Radiology Practice
    Kinson Ho

    Through case studies, the presenter will illustrate how interoperability impacts radiology practices in the areas of scheduled workflow, radiation dose management, and capture of appropriate use criteria consultations. The Oxford definition of interoperability is the ability of computer systems or software to exchange and make use of information and the presentation will include an introduction to interoperability terminology. In the session, see how communication of data elements related to the performance of an imaging study is necessary for communicating results, documenting the service in the patient’s record, billing for the service, and reviewing workflow and productivity. The maximum standardization of these elements and their location in an electronic feed will result in the more efficient and effective use of them. Different operational environments will be utilized in the case studies to allow all participants to project themselves, and their infrastructures, into solutions that can benefit their organizations.
    At the conclusion of the session, the attendee will be able to:

    • Share how standardization of data elements and electronic formatting can benefit the radiology practice
