This year’s competition brought out the best in a strong field. All entrants developed notably original breakthroughs in various aspects of medical imaging. And the winners never lost sight of the ultimate point of all the extra effort: improving patient care while increasing efficiencies and, wherever possible, cutting or at least containing costs. Now meet the best of the best. 

Enterprise imaging (EI) is one of the most important areas of focus in modern healthcare, especially in image-heavy specialties such as radiology and cardiology. A new webinar from the teams at  Health Exec and Change Healthcare, “Realizing the Value of Enterprise Imaging: 5 Key Strategies for Success,” examined the value of EI and why healthcare providers need to treat it so seriously. 

Aaron Green, Change Healthcare’s SVP and general manager of radiology and enterprise imaging, has watched the health IT industry go through a great deal of change over the years. Business trends have shifted, new vendors have come and gone, and groundbreaking technologies have evolved so quickly that researchers can hardly keep up.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is still gaining momentum in 2019 as researchers build bigger and better algorithms and vendors release new, state-of-the-art solutions. For healthcare providers, however, the world of AI can still be intimidating in a lot of ways; if you haven’t already started exploring the potential of AI, where do you begin? What’s the first step?
