Ongoing Training/Education

When it comes to keeping up with rapid technological advancements and the evolving landscape of healthcare, knowledge is power.

National Imaging Associates (NIA) brings that power to you, your providers and consumers to help ensure clinical appropriateness and quality.

Our ongoing training and education is research-based, data-driven, and draws from best practices. What's more, our team of clinical experts and board-certified physicians is constantly using this information, data, and best practice information to look ahead, anticipate future trends, and help our customers avoid tomorrow's quality and financial challenges.

Health Plan Education

We work in a consultative partnership with you to keep you informed, identify trends, and gather data that works to enhance your business and deliver bottom-line results through:

  • Trend Analysis: With the industry's largest clinical and financial database, we can identify trends and show you how to refine your products and services.
  • Customer Dashboard: Our award-winning Customer Dashboard provides you with timely access to information, such as call center volume, how patients are being served, and the effectiveness of your program.

Provider Education

We have been training and partnering with the provider community for more than two decades. Through a peer-to-peer consultative partnership, our board-certified physicians develop training and tools for ordering and rendering providers, including:

  • Best Practice Updates: NIA conducts ongoing research in the area of clinical practice measures. We codify clinical appropriateness guidelines and documented industry best practices into measures that can be used to ensure the best possible care.
  • Provider Privileging System: Our provider privileging system educates physicians and reinforces the use of best practices.
  • Provider Feedback: Through a data-based review and feedback program, we share objective performance reviews, on a confidential basis, with individual providers to help them make informed decisions about their practices. All physician feedback is grounded in the latest scientific research, relative to the established appropriateness guidelines as well as the provider's local community.

Consumer Education

By educating your members about procedures, as well as their benefits and risks, we empower them to take an active role in their health care. We're empowering consumers through our:

  • Consumer Portal: Chock-full of important tools and information about benefits and risks of procedures, our consumer portal offers members of your plan an easy-to-use resource that seamlessly integrates with your Web site.
  • Facility Site Selection Support: Through our Consumer Choice program, we empower your members with support and concierge services for informed decisions about facility selection, based on quality, convenience, and cost effectiveness.
  • Informational Resources: In an effort to raise consumer awareness about the benefits and risks of procedures, we publish informational resources for consumers, including imaging health, facility understanding, radiation awareness, as well as cost and quality guides.
