The potential ofInterventional radiology
The Clinical and Economic Value of an IR Practice
IR Is Modern Medicine
Through a tiny incision in the skin, interventional radiologists deliver precise, targeted treatmentLife-threatening conditions — such as cardiovascular disease, stroke or cancer — are treated less invasively than traditional surgeryThis often reduces risks, shortens recovery times and improves health outcomes
Achieve the Triple Aim
Improve the patient care experience — including quality and safetyReduce the (per capita) cost of health careImprove the health of populations
Less Is More
IR enables you to deliver more quality care, less invasively, so you can:Minimize risk to the patientShift care to less expensive outpatient settingsIncrease patient throughput
Improve the Patient Experience
Use of clinical IR procedures can:Shorten recovery timesEnhance the patient experienceImprove health outcomesAll key metrics promoted in alternative payment models
Can help extend resources to enable:Hospitals to provide more indigent care by using fewer hospital resources to reduce cost and maximize reimbursement under value-based payment modelsMore low- and fixed-income patients to afford care by reducing cost of episodes of care (vs. open surgery, etc.), thus reducing the dollar amount of patient co-payments, etc.
Poised for Growth
IR is expanding throughout health care — driven by the proliferation of minimally invasive therapiesIR has the potential to be a significant opportunity for hospital outpatient growth and cross-service line integrationHospitals can leverage interventional oncology to take part in research opportunities, including the $1 billion Cancer Moonshot
Interventional Oncology
Interventional oncology is poised for growth, driven by the proliferation of minimally invasive therapies — including:Percutaneous ablations using radiofrequency, cryotherapy or microwaveTranscatheter therapies, including Y-90 radioembolization and chemoembolizationMR-guided, high-intensity focused ultrasound and others
Collaborative Teams
Interventional radiologists are integral members of patient care teams:Team up with other specialists — delivering innovative solutions to today’s toughest medical problemsMaintain and foster developed relationships across departments in performing a wide array of proceduresPromote innovation and silo-busting that will benefit patients and the care delivery system
Longitudinal Care
Interventional radiologists provide longitudinal patient care:Participate actively in hospital acute setting and the outpatient settingProvide treatment plans for patientsFollow up with patients and other physicians to monitor health and determine if the treatment plan is being administered effectively
IR Is a Primary Specialty
IR residency programs accept interventional and diagnostic radiology residentsDoctors who complete this training can be board certified in both diagnostic and interventional radiologyThese steps will increase the current IR workforce to fuel clinical practices nationwideHealth systems can stay ahead of this curve by starting a clinical IR practice now
