Population health management (PHM) is the holistic process of improving health outcomes of groups of individuals through the support of appropriate financial and care models. Radiologists' presence at the intersection of many aspects of healthcare, including screening, diagnostic imaging, and image-guided therapies, provides significant opportunity for increased radiologist engagement in PHM. Further, innovations in artificial intelligence and imaging informatics will serve as critical tools to improve value in healthcare through evidence-based and equitable approaches. Given radiologists' limited engagement in PHM to date, it is imperative to define the specialty's PHM priorities so that the radiologists' full value in improving population health is realized. In this expert review, we explore programs and future directions for radiology in PHM.
