About this Program

Diagnostic Imaging Professionals are often interested in the IT systems associated with their duties and wish to learn more about them. Imaging Informatics is the specialty where clinical knowledge is used along with IT systems to produce useful information for the healthcare environment. Imaging Informatics is evolving well beyond traditional PACS/RIS Administration and this knowledge will help an Imaging Professional be more proficient in their job duties. 

These concepts are essential for proficiency in expected duties with PACS (now called MIMPS by FDA) but also work with other integrated digital systems like Voice Recognition Dictation, Structured Reports, Image Distribution, Health Information Exchange, and many more. This course will provide practical insight into these information systems that facilitate the Diagnostic Imaging departments and the healthcare environment.

A printable download will be available to each registrant before the webinar. This will allow you to follow along with the presentation and make notes as necessary.
