Taking a leadership role in healthcare IT is all about connections - between digital imaging modalities, between modalities and departments, between information systems, between physicians, referring physicians and specialists. This year's 15 winners - ranging from imaging centers and a specialty heart hospital to large, academic medical centers and community hospitals - share common goals of reducing and eliminating film, investing in digital imaging devices, PACS and department information systems and a determination to link decision-makers and caregivers across the healthcare enterprise.
