From declining reimbursement to ever increasing regulations, medical imaging leaders are always tackling the next challenge. They understand the difficult environment facing their profession and are dealing with pressures to do more with less and still provide increased quality of care for patients.
In 2015 and 2016, AHRA surveyed members and non-members. The four key challenges that were rated highest by both groups were concerns typical of a manager or director:
- Regulatory issues/preparedness
- Budgeting and financial management
The key difference between member and non-member challenges? AHRA members have access to products and services developed specifically with their needs in mind.
In an open-ended question, survey participants were asked to give the single most important reason they are AHRA members. Top reasons included:
Information – 95% of survey participants agreed that AHRA is the leader in creating, expanding, refining, and transferring the body of knowledge of imaging management to healthcare professionals.
Networking – 93% agreed AHRA facilitates the development of professional relationships among imaging professionals.
Education– 78% agreed the AHRA Education Foundation is successful in securing resources to fund services, programs, products, and opportunities to meet the needs of imaging leadership.
Opportunities – 81% agreed AHRA members achieve a high level of management success through AHRA professional development products and services.
