V-19 - Teleradiology: Lessons for Telemedicine from an Established Specialty

Sunday, April 29
2:30 PM - 3:45 PM
Location: E253AB

Radiology is one of the oldest and most established clinical specialties engaged in telemedicine and is integrally embedded in the majority of healthcare enterprises to the extent that the term teleradiology is often not even used. The evidence regarding teleradiology and related applications confirms its feasibility/acceptance, its positive effects on patient outcomes, and costs of interventions. However, teleradiology still faces many challenges as our healthcare system changes, payment structures change, and quality programs such as MACRA are implemented. The evolution, long history and current changes in the daily practice of teleradiology can provide many lessons for those in other clinical specialties. This panel will provide a brief overview of the history and current state of teleradiology, the challenges radiology departments and practicing radiologists are facing today with teleradiology internally and from the enterprise and industry perspective, and a discussion of some of the important payment and quality initiatives that are and will impact the practice and growth of teleradiology in today’s healthcare environment.
