WAYNE, N.J., May 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At the 2018 Spring Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA) Convention & Expo, accomplished radiologist Pradeep Albert, MD, DABR, will present his experience and insights for how urgent care centers can utilize imaging services to improve patient care and create new revenue opportunities.

Dr. Albert is an academic radiologist in New York, President of the International Society of Regenerative Medicine and an entrepreneur.

“As the US healthcare system continues the transition to value-based care, physicians and administrators are seeking solutions that both enhance clinical care and provide operational efficiencies.

Dr. Albert will lead an interactive discussion detailing how urgent care centers can utilize diagnostic imaging, such as digital radiography (DR) and ultrasound, and relationships with imaging centers to enhance the quality and efficiency of patient care. He will also share clinical and business strategies based on real-world experiences.
