Radiology services have significantly changed over the past several decades, moving from film-based to digital operations.  The transition has frequently occurred outside of normal Information Technology (IT) services, and may be at odds with established IT practices. The need for greater interoperability with other hospital information systems requires greater reliance on IT’s expertise.  Changes in healthcare policies from fee-for-service to value-based care require that radiology services be more intertwined with other hospital services.

This presentation will address aspects of IT’s expertise and how they can be applied within imaging system management.  Real-life examples will illustrate how adhering to IT practices can be valuable to the operation of systems such as PACS and imaging equipment. Examples of how enterprise imaging may impact radiology systems will be provided to illustrate how IT can best address enterprise needs, and how they are essential to value-based care and population health management.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Identification of IT practices that may impact radiology system operations
  • Discussion of the benefits of taking advantage of IT practices, and the need for policies and procedures governing radiology systems
  • Review of pertinent regulatory policies that may impact radiology system operation
  • How Value-based care and Population Health Management will impact radiology operations

Who Will Benefit:

  • Radiology Department
  • PACS Administrators
  • Imaging equipment supervisors
  • IT Management
