SIIM 2015 - Imaging Informatics Focus on Enterprise Imaging Exchange

NexGenic was proud to exhibit and participate in this year’s 2015 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting. Conference activities included hackathons, white board sessions, roundtables and presentations covering the latest trends, methodologies, and standards being developed and deployed in diagnostic imaging.

Every year SIIMs is attended by the worlds leading imaging informatics professionals and it was great to discuss with the attendee’s our ImageInbox solution for sharing images "as easy as email." In particular because the primary theme of SIIM 2015 was adopting enterprise imaging technology and policies regarding how to interface images and related information across the healthcare continuum.

Image sharing is central to discussions regarding enterprise imaging and many prominent institutions have responded to these new demands by using ImageInbox to meet HHS Meaningful Use requirements for image sharing.  Adding further consequence are new criteria put forth recently by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), requiring Level I and II trauma centers to have a mechanism in place utilize outside radiographic images from referring providers.

We at NexGenic are already seeing that one of the upsides in this trend towards adopting enterprise imaging solutions that enable networked communication is that it can elevate the radiologists consultative role and the strategic importance of radiology collaboration as the doctor’s doctor. Identifying with referring physicians and participating in patient care planning and best practices.

If we didn’t get to talk at SIIMs 2015, please contact us about using ImageInbox to meet your organizational workflow and regulatory requirements for secure image sharing, all with no upfront cost or obligations.
