The Center for Practice Transformation (CPX) facilitates the development, testing, and implementation of initiatives to re-imagine care delivery to patients in radiology, improve patient outcomes, optimize patient and clinician experience, and decrease the cost of care. It applies innovation principles to identify opportunities to improve the radiology experience for patients and caregivers, referring physicians, trainees, staff, and radiologists.
