Keynote Speaker, Dr. Swaminathan, who is Past President of Illinois State Medical Society highlighted the future of Radiology and new sweeping changes coming to the Medical field in view of Obama’s re-election. Larger share of health care budget will be consumed by changes taking effect in Obama care. This will increase Medicaid enrollment amounting up to 50% of healthcare budgets. Due to low rate of re-imbursement by Medicaid and to decrease the overhead, trend will continue towards decreasing independent practitioners and increasing number of employment type working contracts. Most adverse effect due to shrinking revenue will be felt by independently owned imaging centers. He asked the radiologists to be proactive and join political action committees. This was followed by a question and answer session.
