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 health care, including screening, diagnostic imaging, and image-guided therapies, provides the opportunity for increased radiologist engagement in PHM. Furthermore, innovations in artificial intelligence and imaging informatics will serve as critical tools to improve value in health care through evidence-based and equitable approaches. Given radiologists' limited engagement in PHM to date, it is imperative to define the PHM priorities of the specialty so that radiologists' full value in improving population health is realized. The purpose of this expert review is to explore programs and future directions for radiologists in PHM.
