Product code: SP-152

This one-day course is a must for healthcare IT professionals where are seeking to get a basic understanding of the healthcare imaging and IT standards and its context and impact in the healthcare enterprise. Each standard has its own domain and provides unique benefits to a certain part of the enterprise, impacting workflow and efficiency while enabling end users to integrate systems from multiple vendors. i.e. allowing best-of-breed solutions. When pursuing this multi-vendor open standards approach, one needs to make sure that the systems truly support open standards to make sure that they are interchangeable and can be replaced in the future without significant migration costs.
