Value Based Care in Radiology: “First Steps”

Date: Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Time: 2pm EDT / 1pm CDT /12pm MDT / 11am PDT

Faculty: George W. Vallillee, BS, MBA, Manager, Radiology Information Services, Spectrum Health, Grand Rapids, MI.

If going digital was our charter for the past decade then Value Based Care (VBC) must be our ambition for the next. VBC is a complex broad spectrum approach which becomes the underlayment of a patient’s encounter within our respective health care institutions. As with any complex undertaking first steps require we parse the greater philosophy of Value Based Care into manageable tasks. In Radiology we look to Imaging 3.0 to inform us what those first steps should be.

George Vallillee, BS, MBA, will discuss the early steps Spectrum Health Radiology has taken in the journey towards Value Based Care and share their success story in the making. He'll describe the patient safety aspect of supporting VBC and how they use “LEAN” processes to affordably and substantively improve patient safety for those times when systems fail. Spectrum Health is an Integrated Delivery Network with 11 Hospitals, 1080 employed physicians, 2000 Beds, and nearly 22,000 staff members.
