One of the most valuable benefits of being part of Strategic Radiology has been the new initiatives that we've put into place, and one is a relationship management program that was a collaboration of several SR groups. We were able to replicate a score card that had metrics and other different points of interest—it has been remarkable how well that was received.
Strategic Radiology is a nationwide coalition of quality-focused independent, private radiology practices that provide medical imaging services to more than 250 hospitals and 625 outpatient sites in more than 40 states.
While most would agree that radiology practices are undergoing consolidation, many questions remain regarding its extent and its effects, resulting in hype, hyperbole, and not a small amount of uneasiness throughout the specialty.
