Abstract

The vast majority of US radiologists are affiliated with hospital-based group practices, making professional relationships between radiologists and hospitals one of the most crucial factors for a successful practice. However, tensions between radiology groups and hospitals have been increasing and have led to some well-publicized breakdowns. The ACR Task Force on Relationships Between Radiology Groups and Hospitals and Other Healthcare Organizations was charged to identify key factors affecting these relationships and to make recommendations and propose positive steps that could improve relationships and benefit radiologists, hospitals, and patients.
