Join AGFA HealthCare for a HIMSS18 Lunch and Learn

The exponential growth and consequent fragmentation of medical image information is a pandemic and largely unsolved problem across  most  health  systems,  resulting  in sub-optimal patient care, inefficiency and cybersecurity risk. Our discussion will detail real-life experiences across a variety of diverse health care institutions on building a strategy to mitigate these problems and derive measureable value by addressing them through Enterprise Imaging IT.


This panel of experienced leaders in enterprise data management and transformation discuss tangible tactics to simplify and transform IT support of clinical collaboration and operational efficiencies.

  • Learn how organizations are expanding the Imaging Value Chain, and what results can be expected from the effort.

Sharing of information along a continuum of care is typically delayed or requires heroic efforts, if accomplished at all, to the detriment of quality care delivery.
