dc.description.abstract This paper detailed the variables that affect the reimbursement rates, and efficiency. The literature review expanded on the challenges faced by outpatient diagnostic imaging centers. The main themes that were identified in the scholarly literature were the rate of reduction in reimbursement and the rate of utilization. The measures focused on patient-centered care, marketing, and compliance. The paper constructs the finding of the research study based upon the systems theory. A content analysis was done in order to see what has been done in order to increase profitability, productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness of the outpatient diagnostic imaging centers and to evaluate the best practices. Analysis highlighted the reasons why there is limited research published in textual materials about best practices for diagnostic imaging centers. These reasons included the fact that data analytics are kept private, academic researchers might not be active in this area, outpatient diagnostic imaging services are location specific, and the market of diagnostic imaging is referral based. Analysis concluded that more research needs to be conducted to better understand and implement best practices for diagnostic imaging centers. Furthermore, the recommendations were made based on the content analysis. en_US
