IR has always been an innovative, collaborative, technology-driven field. In many ways, it mirrors the attributes of the Millennial generation of doctors entering the workforce. 

Millennials grew up with a focus on teamwork, group projects and, of course, technology. They’re collaboration and technology natives, which makes them perfect for the health care environment under the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act reforms. MACRA rewards care provided in multispecialty teams of physicians with a focus on outcomes. With their ability to easily collaborate and innovate, Millennials are poised to cement IR as a critical team member.
