SIIM 2010 Corporate Partners Touch On Practioner ‘Pain Points’

March 26, 2010 - The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) announces an innovative addition to the educational sessions at the upcoming SIIM 2010 Annual Meeting, June 3-6 in Minneapolis - "vendor tie-in" sessions sharing corporate vision in context with the educational material.

By coupling the educational content with shared vendor experiences on the subject matter, SIIM attendees will be exposed to the practical aspects of implementing new technologies, and gain a greater common understanding of alternatives and available opportunities. Four of the eight learning tracks at SIIM 2010 will feature vendor-tie ins selected by the program committee of SIIM.

"The new session format highlights one of the cornerstones of the SIIM experience: the personal interaction and networking opportunities between thought leaders, attendees and industry exhibitors," said Program Committee Chair Katherine P. Andriole, PhD, FSIIM. "Vendors submitted proposals and were given guidelines for their tie-in sessions, coordinating the session subject matter with industry approaches," she stated. All of the participating companies are SIIM corporate members as well as SIIM 2010 exhibiting companies. SIIM invites you to see a featured video clip on the SIIM 2010 annual meeting homepage,, where Andriole discusses the new sessions.

Each learning track provides session attendees with a chance to share their thoughts and expectations about the technologies that apply to their daily workflow and further explore solutions to their day-to-day challenges. Vendor tie-in discussions for specific sessions will allow all participants to contribute to the discussion, sharing their vision of innovations in medical imaging informatics.

Following are the SIIM 2010 Learning Tracks that feature vendor tie-in sessions, and a list of participating vendors:

New Tools in Data Management (Learning Track 3)
