November 10, 2016 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. will sponsor two Lunch and Learn Sessions as well as hold a series of in-booth educational presentations at the 102nd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The Lunch and Learn sessions will focus on modalities solutions and medical informatics, respectively.

Both Lunch and Learn sessions will take place on Monday, Nov.28 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. and will feature respected experts and clinicians in their fields discussing a specific topic of interest to the radiology community. The sessions will include:

Transitioning to DR: Clinical and Financial Benefits Beyond Preventing Reimbursement Penalties — The session will feature Jerry Thomas, MS, FAAPM, DABR, CHP, DABSNM, coordinator radiologic physics/radiation safety officer at Via Christi Health Inc., and William Tobin, imaging director and MRI [magnetic resonance imaging] safety officer at East Texas Medical Center. While recent legislation is prompting facilities to transition from X-ray and computed radiography (CR) to digital radiography, there are gains to be made beyond avoiding reimbursement cuts. The speakers will discuss the many benefits of implementing DR systems including time savings, better image quality, increased patient safety and satisfaction, reduced radiation dose and improvements to a facility's bottom line.

Evolution of Value-Based Care: Where Does Radiology Fit? – James Whitfill, M.D., chief medical officer at Scottsdale Health Partners, a clinically integrated network in Phoenix, Ariz., will lead the presentation.  Whitfill will discuss value-based care in the context of today's technologically driven healthcare environment. He will also talk about his experience as part of a provider team that has delivered cost savings across multiple payer sources including commercial, Medicare ACO, direct to employer and Medicare Advantage plans.

In its booth, Fujifilm will showcase its comprehensive portfolio of digital radiography, women's imaging, ultrasound and medical informatics solutions. The company's latest innovations are designed to help providers achieve optimal diagnostic outcomes, increase workflow and efficiencies and improve patient safety and satisfaction.

RSNA attendees will also have the opportunity to learn, network and discuss important healthcare trends and challenges facing the radiology community. Fuijifilm's In-Booth Healthcare Theater will feature brief, daily presentations on topics such as:

  • DR Technology Advances to Improve Patient Outcomes;
  • CR to DR Transition: Maximize Patient Outcomes & Financial Benefits;
  • Imaging at the Speed of Innovation: Explore a Server-side Platform to Move Beyond;
  • Securing Your Enterprise Should be Simpler;
  • Moving Beyond Radiology: Improve Patient Care and Safety with a Secure and Complete Imaging Record; 
  • Ultra-High Frequency: A New Mode in Ultrasound Imaging; and
