RBMs in New Orleans: The Panel and the Pain
On June 7, 2011, at the Annual Summit of the RBMA in New Orleans, Louisiana, four CEOs and one senior leader—representing all five radiology benefit management (RBM) companies—participated in a panel discussion during a general session, “Face to Face With RBM CEOs: Shaping the Dialogue for Imaging’s New Realities.” Look for coverage of that session in the August/September issue of this magazine. While the panelists provided insight into the current policies and future ambitions of the RBMs, a series of questions designed to probe audience experiences shed light on the administrative impact that these policies are having on the nation’s radiology practices.
