Summary: SIIM 2013 sessions address the challenges with workflow management, present strategies for image-enabled HIE, for meeting meaningful use (MU) requirements, and improving communication with referring physicians, and will introduce SIIM Workflow Initiative in Medicine (SWIM™).
June 7, 2013 – Some of the
most attended sessions at the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2013 Annual Meeting (June 6-9, 2013,
Grapevine-Dallas, TX) will address the challenges with workflow
management, present strategies for image-enabled
HIE, for meeting meaningful
use (MU) requirements, and improving communication with referring
physicians, and will introduce SIIM Workflow Initiative in
Communications, Inc. is presenting live demonstrations of the
Powerscribe 360 suite, which is designed to help radiologists
create timely, actionable reports that improve clinical decision making and
streamline patient care by seamlessly incorporating speech recognition,
clinical language understanding, data integrations and the communication of
critical test results directly into the radiologists' workflow.
“Today radiologists are
facing spiraling costs, decreasing reimbursements, increased competition,
expanding compliance requirements and a pressing need to clearly demonstrate
our role in care coordination and improving patient outcomes," said Jana
Hansen, Diagnostic Imaging Systems and Ultrasound Manager, Mankato Clinic.
our radiologists address these issues by enabling them to work smarter, not
Radiologists can leverage the PowerScribe
360 platform to access MU tools that are integrated as Web Services APIs.
One such service is ElementMU, a
cloud-based MU service that integrates with existing imaging IT solutions and
is available as a monthly subscription to radiology practices of all sizes.
ElementMU, provided by ImagingElements,
includes technology that leverages denominator reduction opportunities in
Radiology that can dramatically reduce the workflow impact associated with
Meaningful Use data collection.
