WEBINAR: Practical Integration of VNA into a Mature Imaging Architecture

Webinar sponsored by GE Healthcare

 Practical Integration of VNA into a Mature Imaging Architecture

During this webinar, Andy Strickland, director of imaging informatics, describes the role of VNA (vendor neutral archives) in University of Washington Medical Center’s enterprise imaging environment. With the growth of imaging, more attention is being paid to revenue capture and payors are becoming more insistent on documentation. VNA can provide an archive to the enterprise that’s easy to use and provide the documentation required for claim generation.

The webinar took place April 25, 2017. The recorded version of this webinar is available by registering for the event.
