5 considerations when building an imaging ecosystem post COVID-19

Tuesday, June 15th, 2021 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT

COVID-19 has exposed significant patient care, communication and security challenges stemming from the inability of independent health systems to grant universal, secure access to their imaging data. In order to solve these challenges, healthcare providers must empower clinicians with technologies – such as cloud and AI – that can help promote interoperability, support informed clinical decisions, improve workflows and enhance productivity.

However, as cash-strapped health systems consider new investments in technology, they are grappling with one additional challenge: How to maximize value and minimize risk – while managing costs. Join experts from IBM Watson Health to learn 5 key considerations for healthcare providers looking to apply technology and data to help build a patient-centric, cost-effective imaging ecosystem.

Learning objectives

• How to foster a more patient-centric, financially sustainable imaging environment
• Understand the difference between ‘nice-to-have’ and ‘must-have’ technologies when it comes to building your imaging ecosystem
• Discuss ways to alleviate clinician frustration and encourage collaboration within the workflow
