As health care undergoes fundamental redesign organized around increasing the value of care for populations, most of the discussion has focused on primary care and its role in managing the care of these populations. Relatively less attention has been given to specialty care population management, especially for hospital-based specialties such as diagnostic radiology. In radiology, an analysis of such a change is important and similar issues likely apply to other specialist activities as well.
