The Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) is proud to announce the recent release of the RBMA Bulletin Technology and Buyers Guide issue. In its 49th year of publication, the RBMA Bulletin has been delivering a Buyers Guide issue since 2007.
Over the past decade the technological advances in the industry have greatly impacted practice management operations and enforced practices to constantly remain in step with the latest developments. In his article in the RBMA Bulletin entitled Technology Can Improve Your Practice, Randy Johnston explains how properly implemented technology can help deliver better client service with less effort.
Business intelligence has become increasingly vital to the survival of a radiology practice in a leaner, more competitive healthcare market, Cat Vasko shares how to derive analytics from billing data and then utilize it to improve operations in her article, Leveraging Billing Data to Find Opportunities for Improvement.
With the continual barrage of technological improvements in healthcare delivery and business process operations it is foreseeable that practices encounter glitches. In her article, The Pitfalls of Technology and Automation, Ann Reynolds uncovers what effect raising the bar can have and how to plan for the inevitable snags.
When implementing new technology it is important to communicate and prepare all staff members for the upcoming change. Pat Kroken delves into the human side of adopting technology in her article, Change Management Challenges: The Scary Side of Something New.
