November 11, 2015 — Konica Minolta Medical Imaging (KMMI) is collaborating with healthcare providers across specialties and disciplines to improve use of primary imaging at the point-of-care. Primary imaging, such as digital radiography and ultrasound, is the first image before any other imaging; it encompasses 70 percent of all diagnostic medical imaging studies. Working with KMMI Design Thinking specialists, healthcare providers can customize their primary imaging solutions to their individual, evolving needs. This Design Thinking approach, as well as information regarding new solution enhancements will be available at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2015 scientific assembly and annual meeting, Nov. 29-Dec. 4, in Chicago.

In today's outcomes-focused healthcare environment, providers use the immediate information provided by primary imaging to better diagnose and help choose when to use more expensive, advanced diagnostic tools, such as computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance images (MRIs). When supported by end-to-end IT systems and expert service teams, primary imaging data helps healthcare teams collaborate and make informed decisions – quickly, cost-effectively and confidently.

Recently, KMMI sponsored Healthovate! Activate!, which is a platform for dialogue on the future of healthcare. At this event, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging conducted a Primary Imaging Design Thinking Lab. With these key learnings, and the discoveries from other Primary Imaging Design Thinking Labs, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging will fine tune it co-creation tool, and continue to engage with healthcare providers at the point-of-care, to deepen its existing findings and implement these ideas into its co-creation approaches and solutions.
