Change is the focus, and Berger says it can't happen too fast. "We need to focus on greater degrees of alignment with the systems that we work with, and we really need to focus on a lot of the things that we've gotten away from," he says. "It's not a productivity world, it's a value-based world. We would like to be able to provide the resources that even the large groups need to take us into a value-based era."
Berger asserts that PIE will not just tell radiologists, hospitals and other care-delivery organizations what needs to change to achieve better integration, but will be the resource responsible for implementing those changes. To that end, PIE has built an equally prominent advisory board heavy in IT and business expertise.
"We are not an independent consulting business," he says. "A consultant, to me, is generally someone who borrows your watch and tells you what time it is. Once the consultant leaves, very often not a whole lot takes place because people get caught up in doing what they used to do."
Reengineering the job description
"Leaders need to face reality," Berger says, suggesting that while radiology has faced challenges in the past, this time is different. "Protecting the status quo and doing things the way we used to do them-only maybe a little bit better-is not going to cut it."
Taking the giant steps necessary to achieve a truly integrated health system and doing for patients "what we would expect our loved ones to receive when they are patients" are key, he says.
"What that means to me, very fundamentally, is we need to reengineer the job description of the radiologist today," he says. "We need to say, 'What do we really want to do to provide tremendous value?'"
Is there just a little bit of irony in the fact that someone who might be considered the father of teleradiology is now is making it his business to de-commoditize radiology? Berger says no.
"Teleradiology was and still is a means of getting work done," he says.
