December Webinar- An Overview of HDIRS, a Regional Diagnostic Imaging Repository
Dec 12, 2018 12:00PM to Dec 12, 2018 01:00PM
This presentation will introduce you to the concept of a regional diagnostic imaging repository. We will look at some of the challenges associated with sharing outside imaging across multiple organizations as it relates to the patient identification and technical interoperability. The presentation will identify quantifiable benefits that have been achieved by providing sites access to external diagnostic imaging and report.
