As the 2012 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) comes to a close, the U.S. imaging informatics industry is caught between two opposing waves: money being drawn out of the country's medical imaging spending pool on one side, and the regaining of interest for enterprise healthcare informatics on the other side. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that a year characterized by the lack of game changing breakthroughs in imaging equipment technology coincides with the year when the third-generation picture archiving and communication systems (PACSs) become an industry reality. By generalizing the reliance on vendor-neutral archives (VNAs) and cloud computing, as well as leveraging electronic medical record (EMR) integration and system interoperability, the new generation of imaging informatics solutions will allow providers to aim for higher levels of information exchange and analytics, communication and collaboration, decision support, and quality of care.

Why you should attend this webinar:

  • Recap key takeaways from the industry show floor
  • Gain insight on the latest and greatest products and technologies in medical imaging
  • Receive a reality check on the current state of emerging market trends

This briefing will benefit medical imaging and healthcare IT industry participants, including providers and stakeholders, by summarizing key industry developments and announcements made at the 98th Annual RSNA Meeting, while providing a snapshot of the current state of emerging trends in the U.S. medical imaging informatics industry.

"Medical imaging providers must once again adjust to a new round of imaging cuts in 2013," said Frost & Sullivan Principal Analyst Nadim Michel Daher.  "If vendors have to continue to slow down on technology and product innovation spending on the equipment front, clearly they cannot afford this same belt-tightening with informatics."
