Keynote Speaker
Richard Duszak, MD, FACR, FRBMA - Physician Performance: New Metrics for New Imperatives
Physician productivity measurement can be the electrified third rail of many radiology practices. Chasing RVUs, at the expense of important non-clinical and non-interpretive services, can have profound adverse implications for physician health and well-being, patient care, and a practice’s long-term success. In this session, Dr. Duszak will review traditional metrics, discuss why those metrics are no longer alone appropriate as healthcare delivery models evolve, highlight alternative performance metrics to consider, and share his own practices’ experiences aligning physician performance metrics with organizational strategic priorities. Participants will be challenged to consider their own practice’s priorities and develop physician performance metrics to facilitate organizational success.
