Description

Establishing a photodocumentation program is an essential component of a comprehensive enterprise imaging implementation. Bringing standardization and unified management is a challenge. Photodocumentation spans all medical specialties and has evolved around specialty specific technologies and processes. As with all medical documentation standardization and unification is essential to creating a comprehensive view of a patient's electronic health information and to support interoperability. This talk shares the experience at one large multi-hospital academic medical center. During this talk the presenters will discuss technology selection, workflow development, indexing, EMR integration, viewing and sharing, as well as security and privacy considerations. The development of specialty specific use cases and guidelines will be described. Current industry conversations on image acquisition, metadata and labeling standards will be reviewed.
