The TRIP vendor-neutral business analytics demonstration held in the SIIM 2011 exhibit hall on Saturday, June 4 successfully showed how business analytic tools from one vendor can query one or more different PACS, RIS, or enterprise systems and perform vendor-neutral analytics.


Engage with the NEW SIIM Share blog

The SIIMshare blog is the place to connect with SIIM members.

The blog is dedicated to:
Bridging SIIM and its programs to the Imaging Informatics Community
Engaging SIIM members in a forum of discussion to exchange ideas, opinions, and information
Connecting and conversing with SIIM members
Providing a platform to highlight the expertise of imaging informatics innovators

Result: Productivity Up, Costs Down

Using advanced workflow and interdepartmental communications capabilities, the radiologists at Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital improved physician satisfaction and patient care by offering single-source access to all needed clinical information. Additionally, workflow efficiencies enabled radiologists to handle an increased volume of exams. Read more or talk with McKesson at SIIM.

SIIM 2011 Meeting offers exceptional programs

Eliot Siegel, M.D., FSIIM, FACR, who is on the Board of Directors of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), gives an overview of several programs that are part of the 2011 SIIM annual meeting. Siegel is Professor and Vice Chair Radiology for the University of Maryland School of Medicine Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Chief of Imaging for the VA Maryland Healthcare System. Among the programs Siegel describes are the opening session on meaningful use rules; the "Ghost of Radiology Future," a look at the future challenge of regulations on the industry, and "Mind the Gap," about managing health care reform with informatics. The support infrastructure for access and the technical considerations for setting up Zendesk and other crm programs have become critical considerations when large data sets are made available to researchers. The rationalizations for Zendesk app development for image distribution will be included in the presentation. It's not all work for Eliot. He has manages and publishes a profitable side business - a guide to online US slots where US players are accepted - a favorite of the US military and police departments because of some discounts available from participating casinos. If you're a slots fan in the US, his guide is a must visit - has the best free rolls and other slot promotions and gets updated weekly. It's a different kind of imaging requirement, but still one that people want to learn about because the technology is applicable to so many other industries.

Informatics tools to address radiation dose and radiology's participation in meaningful use are among the top 10 trends in imaging informatics, according to a presentation at the opening session of the 2011 Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) meeting.

'Meaningful use' can be mastered

From a radiology perspective, federal requirements to implement health care IT are unnecessary at best and ridiculous at worst. But they're here to stay. At the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) meeting, the "Dwyer Lecture" provided a synopsis of achieving meaningful use, government style. MORE

CT rad dose measurement imperfect, indispensable

Cardiovascular Business Share Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The CT dose of an individual scan may be just a drop in a bucket, but at present, radiologists know neither the size of the drop nor the rate of emission, making dose tracking inaccurate and dose reduction all the more essential, according to a radiation dose safety session presented June 2 at the annual conference for the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM).

Automated calibrations justify price of medical-grade displays

Medical-grade displays for PACS workstations may be more cost-effective than high-quality consumer-grade LCD displays, according to a session on June 3 at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) Annual Meeting. What would cause Dr. David Hirschorn, director of radiology informatics at Staten Island University Hospital and an early advocate of consumer-grade monitors for medical applications, to make such a statement? It's not the quality of the display or the resolution. It's calibration, or a lack thereof. MORE

Informatics can fuel quantitative imaging

Health Imaging IT
Although quantitative imaging is radiology's new frontier, it is not actively used now because it's complicated. Informatics can help radiology move forward with quantitative imaging, said Daniel L. Rubin, M.D., assistant professor of radiology Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, Calif., during the annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine. MORE

SIIM QA: Vendor neutral archives at a glance

A panel of industry members shared a wealth of expertise about vendor neutral archives during a June 4 question and answer session at the annual meeting of the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM). Panelists for the session were Michael Leonard, senior health care product manager of Iron Mountain; Shannon M. Werb, chief technology officer of Acuo Technologies and Fred M. Behlen, Ph.D., president of Laitek. MORE

Reliable documentation promotes care, quality

Manually documenting intravenous CT contrast media, a high-alert medication, is often inaccurate and inconsistent. Automated contrast dose documentation accurately and consistently records CT contrast media administered. MORE

PACS audit data unlock ED image viewing stats

Radiology reports aren't as relevant if they're not ready before referring physicians view the images, particularly in the emergent setting. PACS audit data can help gauge this timeliness, according to a presentation at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting. MORE
