Transformation of the United States Medical Imaging Industry, 2017
Consolidations, Process Automation, and Emphasis on Interoperability Drive Greater Standardization and Integration of Imaging in Clinical Care Pathways
  • The US medical imaging industry is undergoing a transformation with stakeholders across the ecosystem emphasizing collaborative population health-based approaches over conventional episode-based models of care delivery. Current reimbursement and regulatory factors are pushing the imaging industry away from a “get bigger” approach that emphasizes more imaging scans and towards a “get better” approach that emphasizes cost reductions and improved efficiency across the value chain. To this end, the imaging industry seeks to become more patient-centric, prioritizing improved patient experience and empowerment.

    To succeed in this transition, the imaging industry is moving beyond the modality and focusing on enhancing the value of the image itself. The industry seeks to create a coherent strategy to standardize the imaging process and integrate imaging into care protocols across multiple clinical areas. Introducing standardization into a fragmented care delivery landscape hinges on frictionless interoperability and sharing of data, which are widely regarded as the single-most important goal for the imaging industry. The ability to share and collate millions of imaging scans enables the industry to apply deep learning analytics solutions that will evolve best practices, enhance automation, and improve the workflow productivity of care provision.
