Several international radiology associations, including RSNA, ACR and ESR, recently published a paper that called radiology a “key component” in value-based care and laid out nine steps for integrating it into value-based care
and measuring, recognizing and augmenting its value.
A prior study from the Harvey L. Neiman Policy Institute in 2016, however, found that provider participation in ACOs occurs at a wide range of cost benchmarks
, which, in turn, result in a wide range of physician provider shares. "In choosing a cost benchmark, CMS needs to consider the willingness of the ACO and its members to participate in the MSSP program. Different agents, such as hospitals, primary care physicians, and radiologists may have different thresholds of cost benchmarks in order to be willing to participate," Hui Zhang, one of the researchers, told HCB News at the time.
