Minding the Gap: Enabling Collaboration to Improve Patient Care
Collaboration is a key driver of positive change in healthcare. When data and images flow smoothly across departments and specialties, it creates a more holistic view of the patient’s condition. However, collaboration isn’t always easy. Legacy systems and department-specific tools generate data that is hard for others to access, expensive to store and retrieve, and frequently force care providers to find workarounds.

“CIOs face a challenge in making medical imaging data accessible for collaboration primarily because it is often located in isolated systems or departments,” said John Hansen, Offering Management Executive at IBM Watson Health.

The good news? With the right enterprise imaging solution, you can bridge those persistent gaps, making collaboration a reality.

Read our latest whitepaper, “Minding the gap: enabling collaboration to improve patient care,” to explore how an enterprise imaging management system can reduce costs, improve patient care, and enhance patient satisfaction.
