As imaging emerges from the confines of radiology and cardiology and becomes part of a larger strategy, what does this mean for healthcare IT leaders? Experts Joseph Marion, Brandon Taggart and Chris Magyar shared their thoughts in a recent panel discussion.
Once considered a ‘nice to have,’ enterprise imaging is becoming a must-have for healthcare organizations. The problem? The expectations are high, and the resources available to craft a solid strategy are not, says Monique Rasband of KLAS.
It’s time to take imaging out of the silos and integrate it with the overall strategy, says Adam Gale. And that starts with obtaining buy-in from multiple departments, as well as EHR vendors.
Most organizations realize the potential of enterprise imaging, but until they move it out of radiology and treat it as a real priority, that potential will remain in the dark, says Adam Gale.
