Enterprise innovations at SIIM 2016

Change is in the air, can you feel it?

Of course you can! You work in healthcare, change is what you do. Fortunately, the SIIM 2016 Annual Meeting is almost upon us, and academic thought leaders will join industry experts to share the latest strategies and advances in imaging informatics. This year’s conference—with the theme of “Leading Change”—will take place June 28 – July 1 in Portland, Oregon.

The program features a number of sessions dedicated to enterprise imaging, analytics and workflow. Here’s just a few of the sessions that caught our eye:
