May 2022 Power Hour Webinar: Leading Population Health Management (PHM) Initiatives

Moderators: Ryan K. Lee, MBA, MD, Jennifer E. Nathan, MD, and Robert S. Pyatt, Jr, MD, FACR

Faculty: Syed Zaidi, MD, Katherine Behan, MD, Elizabeth Rula, PhD, Rodney Ison, MD

Description: Learn about population health management (PHM), a relatively new approach to care delivery where the goal is to keep distinct patient populations as healthy as possible while minimizing costly interventions and procedures. Join our esteemed panel of speakers, some of whom are PHM experts outside of radiology who can give us a fresh take on where they see radiology fitting into the PHM spectrum. The faculty line-up includes Dr. Katherine Behan, Dr. Rodney Ison, Dr. Elizabeth Rula, Dr. Syed Zaidi, and moderator Dr. Ryan Lee, as they delve into radiology's role in PHM and how radiologists can most optimally coordinate care to improve patient outcomes while also achieving lower costs. Following the presentations there will be a robust Q&A with the panel, and we invite audience members to participate with any questions or suggestions they may have.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key elements of private practice governance
  • Describe some principles and policies that may support and guide bylaw or operating agreement terms
