SIIM is just under two weeks away, and looking at the program guide on their homepage, it’s going to be fantastic meeting. With an abundance of thought-provoking topics, I’m anticipating that there will be a host of presentations that will play key roles in shaping the way we think about medical imaging.
Having reached out to people on Twitter to see what interests our followers most, I received a response saying that they would like to see how the radiology community is adapting to change within the industry. I can’t help but think that this feeling is widespread, given the constant evolution and the affect of items such as policy implementation (for example, healthcare reform and the implementation of meaningful use), to industry initiatives such as Imaging 3.0.
Regardless of how you feel about such changes, they are ever-present and will no doubt be the topic of many conversations at the show. Hopefully, I’ll be able to report back on the thoughts of the radiology community following the conference.
Another Twitter response was in regards to innovation. Personally, I’m excited about this as well. Technological advancements are playing a key role in the industry’s evolution. From facilitating organizational growth to driving radiologists’ individual performance, to clinical decision support to improve patient care, radiology solutions are very much a player driving industry change.
On that note, we will have a couple of product announcements at SIIM that I think will turn some heads and make our customers smile. I can’t give away any secrets at this point, so you’ll have to check in with us during SIIM. If you want updates as soon they’re available, be sure to follow us on twitter @Intelerad or follow us on LinkedIn.
If you’d like to meet with Intelerad at SIIM, we can be found at booth 511. Our sales team will be on-hand to provide answers to any questions you may have, and we’ll have a product specialist on-site in case you’d like to receive a demo.
If you’re attending SIIM, let us know in the comments which SIIM 2013 sessions you are looking forward to most.
