This ScImage-sponsored ITN/DAIC webinar will be held at 2 p.m. Eastern time, Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019.
Sonia Giribaldi, director, imaging informatics, will discuss the specific needs of Nemours Children’s Health System’s quest for seamless interoperability. With a year of experience under their belt, Nemours has rolled out teleradiology and will shortly be deploying telecardiology.
As market demands changed over the last several years, Nemours found themselves in a situation where manual processes were impacting growth and optimized care. In addition to increasing costs and demands for physician productivity, the result was all-around frustration. Nemours’ challenges, search for the ideal situation and benefits will be discussed. Additionally, Giribaldi will enlighten her colleagues on lessons learned and pitfalls of attempting an extensive outreach program.
Nemours’ roadmap for how the right approach to interoperability can increase revenue opportunities, improve services, and enhance cost effectiveness will be highlighted.
