SIIM 2011 Annual Meeting to be Held in the Nation’s Capital

Program Emphasizes Imaging Informatics Essentials, Trends and Innovations

April 11, 2011 – The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) will host its 2011 annual meeting June 2–5, in Washington, D.C. SIIM 2011 offers an ideal balance of education and scientific sessions, exhibit hall hours and networking opportunities, with dynamic interaction between practitioners, thought leaders and vendors.

This year’s theme, “Reforming Healthcare Through Informatics: Challenges to Solutions,” reflects the pressing needs of the imaging informatics community. Sessions throughout the annual meeting highlight the theme and the requirements of healthcare reform and then demonstrate informatics and IT solutions to tackle those challenges.

The annual Dwyer Lectureship features a SIIM Fellow as the presenter of a particularly relevant and insightful topic. This year, Keith J. Dreyer, DO, Ph.D., FSIIM, Vice Chairman of Radiology, Computing and Information Systems at Massachusetts General Hospital, will present the 2011 Dwyer lecture, “Meaningful Use in Medical Imaging: New Technologies for U.S. Healthcare Reform.” Dreyer will present ways to analyze practices and existing technical infrastructure to determine which meaningful use (MU) measures attendees may already be eligible for, and to define successful pathways towards MU, either with a single vendor or through a best-of-breed purchasing approach. The lecture will also provide a guide of the steps necessary for self-certification that will assist participants who have created technology of their own.

A detailed description of the Dwyer Lecture, along with related readings and presentations on meaningful use, is available at www.siim2011.org. Additional sessions on meaningful use at SIIM 2011 include a hot topic session, “MU for Me and You” and a shared learning community presentation, “Seeing Meaningful Use Through the Vendors’ Eyes.”

Eight Learning Tracks have been engineered in 2011 to be cohesive and relevant for using informatics and healthcare IT to deal with real-world concerns. The SIIM 2011 program is designed to include in each learning track a(n): 1) fundamental definition of the problem, 2) practical assessment of what can be done today and what vendor partners can provide now, and 3) exploration of the future to see what can be accomplished by “pushing the envelope.”

The SIIM 2011 program includes three general sessions; seven scientific sessions, plus a poster and demonstration session; nine educational sessions; seven applied learning sessions (five of which are vendor tie-in sessions); eight “hot topic” sessions; 10 roundtables; eight labs as part of the Sunday learning series “tools of the trade,” and more than 75 companies displaying technical exhibits and participating in the exhibit hall shared learning community.

Complete program, travel and registration information can be found at www.siim2011.org.
