HIMSS and SIIM Align to Advance Enterprise Imaging Strategies
While healthcare organizations are making great strides to manage patient data within an electronic health record, imaging data from across the continuum of care is often widely unmanaged, or even, missing from the patient’s electronic health history.
HIMSS and the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) have aligned to form the HIMSS-SIIM Enterprise Imaging Workgroup with enterprise imaging thought leaders to tackle these challenges. This experienced group of health IT professionals understand that incorporating enterprise imaging results within the patient’s electronic health record offers many potential benefits, but the process adds challenges as well.
