“An enterprise imaging strategy is an essential component of the healthcare digital transformation journey. An enterprise imaging service provides a centralized foundation for all phases of image management for every image-producing specialty. Access to all medical images enhances clinical decision making and care coordination.
Operational efficiencies can be achieved through infrastructure and application consolidation and the creation of focused support capabilities with increased depth of skill. Through centralization, standardized image exchange functions can be extended to all providers. Telehealth services can be more tightly integrated into the electronic medical record. Mobile platforms are leveraged for image viewing and sharing by patients and providers, while financial and clinical risks are minimized through increased cybersecurity awareness.”
