Tools for enterprise imaging success

Managing medical images has always been a Herculean undertaking, even when the image types were contained to the “traditional” modalities of radiology. Now that an avalanche of different image types are coming down from all over the enterprise, will providers be snowed under?

It’s a question that imaging and informatics efforts have wrestled with in recent years, and while still a challenge, some sites have seen tremendous success.

There’s no better place to learn about these strategies for success than at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2016 annual conference and exhibition being held in Las Vegas on Feb. 29 through March 4.

Attendees will learn about the tools necessary to manage workflows, including the importance of intelligent enterprise worklists and how to handle the proliferation of images from mobile devices and point-of-care ultrasound.

If you can’t attend in person, be sure to follow Health Imaging and Clinical Innovation + Technology as we bring you stories and interviews from some of the speakers appearing at the show.

And in the meantime, be sure to check out our recent work on optimizing workflows in imaging, including a Q&A on essential technologies for efficient workflows, a look at managing interruptions, a discussion on creating value from better communication, and a summary of the importance of full access to patient data.
