Strategic Radiology has recruited health-care compliance veteran John Outlaw, CHC, to develop a robust compliance program and related resources to mitigate regulatory compliance risk for coalition member radiology practices. As vice president of compliance, Outlaw will develop compliance tools, help member practices implement new compliance programs, and provide strategic direction and oversight to improve the effectiveness of existing programs.

“The health care regulatory environment is increasingly complex, and John Outlaw brings a great depth and breadth of health care compliance expertise to Strategic Radiology,” said Arl Van Moore Jr., MD, FACR, chair and chief executive officer, Strategic Radiology. “We are pleased to offer this level of talent to our members.”

Most recently, Outlaw was the compliance officer for McKesson Business Performance Solutions’ Hospital Affiliated Physicians division, the nation’s largest third-party billing company, providing compliance oversight and administration for radiology, pathology, anesthesia, emergency medicine, and EMS billing.

“Our mission in bringing on John is to help our practices put in place compliance best practices and behaviors that will support radiologist and employee compliance through education and communication,” said Randal Roat, chief operations officer, SR. “The regulatory environment has become more punitive, increasing the level of risk for all health care providers.”

In joining SR, Outlaw returns to the private practice setting where he spent eight years in pathology, developing and implementing corporate compliance programs for Pathology Service Associates, a large third-party billing company, as VP, regulatory affairs and CCO. “I am excited to be back working directly with physician practices on the front lines of patient care,” Outlaw said. “Ethics provide the underpinnings of all effective compliance programs, so Strategic Radiology will be building on a strong foundation.”
