Imaging at HIMSS.16: Session Previews

Every year, the HIMSS annual meeting tackles the biggest issues in healthcare informatics, and managing medical images is always a big topic of discussion.

This year’s focus is on enterprise imaging and the inherent challenges with managing different types of images from the various specialties around a hospital or system. Listed below are some of the sessions on the topic that you can’t miss:
