Leading radiology services in the age of teleradiology, wikinomics, and online medical information.

Abstract

This article provides trends and discussions on the future of radiology within the broader scope of healthcare leadership, focusing on ideas concerning the next generation of leadership. Clinical and management perspectives, while remaining somewhat aware of healthcare trends outside of radiology that may impact the discipline, must also be attentive to shifts within radiology. Leaders need to pay attention to the factors within the discipline that enliven the prospect of patient-centered care in the age of expanding radiology service. The Internet and teleradiology will be an opportunity for innovative leadership to widen and reshape radiology service to keep pace with larger trends in healthcare delivery, collaboration, and patient self-care.
