Enterprise imaging is a fundamental component of a modern health system, but it continues to evolve. As more vendors and healthcare organizations integrate a broader range of new and emerging technologies with imaging, providers need to be prepared for future, especially as these core systems become more linked with electronic health record platforms. In this special project, we look at the how smart systems are girding for the future.
Here's the low-down: Despite the massive leaps forward in knowledge since the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, the healthcare industry has yet to grapple with the big changes to people, processes and technology needed to truly capitalize on precision medicine.
From EHRs to interoperability to clinical decision support, healthcare as an industry does not have the technological infrastructure in place yet to advance precision med. But that's all about to change — and quickly.
This special project looks at what the healthcare industry must do to get to the point where care is more personalized than ever.
There remains a lot of hype about artificial intelligence in healthcare – the potential is very much there, but the reality is the industry is a while away from AI algorithms transforming everyday care. One reason for this is that most hospitals are still on a journey of updating their tools and processes for the digital age. Pagers and fax machines remain a common fixture in even the most digitally mature healthcare organizations.
But that's all changing, and it's happening faster than you can say "Hey, Siri."
This special project looks at the areas where AI, machine learning and cognitive computing are already driving major gains, highlighting case studies, thought leadership and best practices that can help healthcare move AI beyond science fiction for good.
Healthcare continued to be a lucrative target for hackers in 2017 with weaponized ransomware, misconfigured cloud storage buckets and phishing emails dominating the year. In 2018, these threats will continue and cybercriminals will likely get more creative despite better awareness among healthcare organizations at the executive level for the funding needed to protect themselves.
This collection highlights some of the biggest breaches across the industry – and points to some mistakes to avoid in the future.
