SIIM Membership Survey Reveals Members Highly Value Annual Meeting

March 17, 2009 - The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) released results of its 2008/2009 membership survey, which revealed that SIIM members place high value on the education program and exhibits at the SIIM Annual Meeting.

The survey of almost 500 members indicated that the respondents have attended at least one SIIM Annual Meeting, and the annual meeting is ranked highest among SIIM programs. Current pre-registration numbers for SIIM 2009 are holding steady with an average of the past 3 years attendance (2006-2008). The SIIM Marketing Committee will present highlights of the survey for further discussion at the upcoming SIIM 2009 Annual Meeting in Charlotte, NC, June 4-7, 2009.

The survey of SIIM membership continues to shape the direction and development of educational and informational programs offered by SIIM, according to the organization. Respondents' top-rated educational topics included interoperability and integration, communicating results, bridging the IT and clinical perspectives, image-enabled electronic health record (EHR), troubleshooting PACS and implementation issues, advanced processing and visualization, and breast imaging informatics. The SIIM 2009 Annual Meeting has been updated and streamlined this year to spotlight these core focus areas in nine Learning Tracks, and to emphasize essentials such as implementing cost-effective solutions for attendees to take back and share with colleagues at their institutions.
