IT Matters – A banner year for health IT education

by Sean Ruck, Contributing Editor | June 05, 2015
From the May 2015 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

During his presentation, Dennison will explore how some of the components of the picture archiving and the communications components that make up PACS are starting to be picked up by other applications, with for example, EMR systems taking some of those roles over. With those changes to the actual systems also comes a change to some of the long-standing processes within the hospital, with radiologists no longer the gatekeepers of all the related information.

Attendees will learn why the change is occurring and how to best prepare for the future. Immediately following the opening presentation, a town hall-style discussion will take place where attendees will learn more about the future of PACS during the presentation, “Surviving (and Thriving) in a World without PACS.”

While Dennison’s talks will help to set the mood for the show, in all, there are more than 60 educational offerings and events to choose from during the show, meaning IT professionals should find topics of interest no matter what they’re looking to learn about. Another event to mark on your calendar (or in your smart phone) is the NYC Medical Imaging Informatics Symposium happening in New York in September. Hirschorn has put together the symposium for the last five years and already has a number of well-respected presenters lined up, the likes of which included Dr. Eliot Siegel and Dr. Keith Dreyer. Hirschorn has worked with other luminaries in the field to present the latest in imaging informatics, helping to keep participants educated and able to handle the fast-moving changes in health IT today.
