Healthcare costs exceed $9,000 per year per person and the “healthcare crisis is unsustainable,” according to Vivien S. Lee, MD, PhD, MBA. In the Annual Oration in Diagnostic Radiology, delivered during the plenary session, Monday, Nov. 28, 2016, at the Radiological Society of North America’s 102nd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, Dr. Lee discussed moving from fee-for-service to value-based healthcare and how radiology will compete in that new health economy. Dr. Lee is senior vice president of the University of Utah Health Sciences, CEO of the University of Utah Healthcare and dean of the University of Utah School of Medicine.

Almost 20 years ago, Dr. William “Bill” Orrison realized that there was a serious disconnect between the safety and standards of equipment and the personnel involved in medical diagnostic imaging. Based on his knowledge and expertise, Dr. Orrison knew that this disconnect could result in patients being exposed to unsafe levels of radiation. With such horrible examples of misuse, Orrison had to act to help standardize the industry.
