5 Strategies for Turning Medical Imaging into a Strategic Asset

Executive Insights on Innovation in Partnership with HIMSS, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, the MedStar Institute for Innovation, and Ambra Health

Ambra Health Strategies for Unlocking Imaging As a Data AssetToday, manual work abounds when dealing with medical imaging and patient data, and often it’s buried-on CDs and within siloed PACS, making it a liability rather than the key diagnostic asset it should be. At the same time, technology innovations like cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and deep learning are advancing rapidly and have shown they can boost physician productivity and patient satisfaction.

How do you balance it all and choose the right opportunities to innovate medical image management in a way that advances patient care?

This brief brings together healthcare industry thought leaders, practitioners, and technology innovators from New York-Presbyterian Hospital and the MedStar Center for Innovation to discuss how to leverage innovation to turn medical imaging into a strategic asset.

In this whitepaper, you’ll discover 5 of the key recommended strategies for imaging innovation:

  • Don’t just think cost reduction―think new revenue generation.
  • Focus on the white space
  • Use “data liquidity” to unlock image management innovation.
  • Align imaging innovation strategies around new patient expectations.
  • Use metrics to identify opportunities to innovate.
