ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology


Image Exchange: Where We Are and Where We Are Going and Teleradiology - Challenges and Opportunities


May 18, 2016 3:30pm ‐ May 18, 2016 5:00pm

Description

The purpose of the combined informatics presentation on teleradiology and image sharing is to provide information on valuable tools in radiology. Easy secure availability of historical exams through image exchange is of paramount importance to delivering high quality service to our patients. The exchange of CDs remains the predominant means with many associated problems. However, internet based solutions are emerging. The session will highlight how image sharing expedite the exchange of imaging exams, enhance workflow as well as challenges encountered. The discussion will include network based exchange and exchange under patient control through Personal Health Records (PHR). The teleradiology portion of the session will provide an overview of the current experiences, future opportunities and challenges in the teleradiology field. This course will also review the underlying technologies, infrastructure and processes required to enable the efficient interpretation of diagnostic imaging studies remotely and in real-time. Speakers will also touch base on clinical scalability and business sustainability issues affecting teleradioology operations. This will be followed by an in-depth discussion on the need for strong quality assurance programs to support teleradiology services. Finally, speakers will share their insights on the role of teleradiologists in helping with mentoring and education, providing anytime/anywhere subspecialty services, fostering department governance and compliance, and enabling an effective critical communication process.
