Healthcare organizations have invested heavily in health information technology including medical imaging systems. However, there remains a lack of a strategy in the capture, connectivity, and management of medical imaging solutions on an enterprise basis in most healthcare organizations.
This webinar will share important information on how a comprehensive medical imaging strategy can help to deliver digital content outside of traditional digital health IT solutions that improve patient outcomes, provider productivity, and reduce costs. The session will also explore important enterprise themes including governance, risk, operational and clinical improvement and technical security considerations.
The participant will be able to:
Understand important concepts surrounding enterprise medical imaging (EMI) and how that solution can address information content that lies outside of traditional digital patient health IT solutions currently deployed.
Understand the relationship between EMI solutions and how traditional digital health IT solutions can be integrated.
Understand how traditional Radiology solutions can work collaboratively with other healthcare delivery organization departments to capture, connect, and manage EMI content on an enterprise basis.
Develop an approach within their healthcare organization on how to approach the development of a comprehensive EMI strategy to improve patient-centered outcomes.
