May 22, 2009 - The debate "Who Actually Owns Imaging?" will heat up at SIIM 2009, held June 4-7, in Charlotte, N.C.
SIIM welcomes attendees to join this intense panel debate, as vendors, CIOs and IT explore a controversial topic. Panelists will examine the challenges that cardiology and pathology/laboratory medicine face as they seek to make their digital images a part of the electronic medical record, particularly, the difficulties resulting from the absence of an equivalent RIS for these other specialties will be explored.
The objectives of the debate are as follows:
- Summarize the challenges that Cardiology and Pathology/Laboratory Medicine face as they seek to make their digital images a part of the electronic medical record, in particular, the difficulties resulting from the absence of the equivalent of an RIS for these other specialties.
- Describe the interface of Cardiology and Radiology; how that can be either successful or become a turf battle that neither specialty truly “wins”.
- Define the challenges facing radiology because of the many other specialists who would just as soon perform and interpret imaging studies, why these come about, and the pain of preventing them.
- Evaluate the requirements and challenges when enterprise IT “owns” the PACS.
