Why Change Management Is Crucial for Maximizing the Potential of Health IT Investment

Change Management FlowchartMost organizations fail at innovation because they fail at change.

Truly effective healthcare software has the power to transform your business processes, workflow and workplace for the better. Many of these software procurements are driven by IT and have the necessary support of clinical executives.

However, the only way the true, transformative power of your new software can be realized is through employee adoption of the new technologies and processes. Committed, comprehensive buy-in from all affected stakeholders is mandatory if your software investments are to gain traction and deliver benefits to the organization, the users and patients alike.


Enterprise Imaging Inspirations: How to Explore, Invent and Transform Diagnostic Imaging [eBook]

It’s an exciting time to be in radiology. Advances in enterprise imaging, artificial intelligence, data and analytics have the potential to transform patient care. With the right infrastructure, imaging scans and datasets can be accessed on any device at any time. In addition, health systems face the ongoing challenge of finding greater efficiencies while delivering top-quality care, as reimbursements decline and costs rise.

Let’s take this opportunity to look at how all of these factors are transforming our profession and what it takes to thrive in this rapidly evolving environment. To help guide hospitals, radiologists, and health IT leaders, Change Healthcare is proud to announce our latest interactive eBook: Enterprise Imaging Inspirations: How to Explore, Invent and Transform Diagnostic Imaging.


Unlocking Efficiency Gains Through Cross-Site Reporting of Diagnostic Imaging in the UK

Diagnostic imaging team reviewing results on a tabletCurious about the health system in the UK? David Howard of Change Healthcare, argues that cross-site reporting is key to unlocking transformation within the NHS, but warns this is dependent upon the right technological infrastructure.

Sustainable NHS transformation will depend on unlocking quality and efficiency gains through the cross-site reporting of diagnostic imaging.

The cross-site reporting of diagnostic images, through which organisations can share resources and maximise capacity, is contingent upon developing the right technological infrastructure to support collaboration


Artificial Intelligence, Value-Based Care Took Center Stage at RSNA 2017

RSNA 2017The official theme of the 103rd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, held last week at Chicago’s McCormick Place, was “Explore. Invent. Transform.” The unofficial theme could have been either, “Make Artificial Intelligence Your Friend, Not Your Enemy” or “Radiologists Must Do More to Demonstrate the Value They Provide to Patients and Payers.”

Though clearly not as pithy and certainly wordier, the alternative themes are accurate none the less.

To the more than 48,000 attendees at RSNA this year, it was clear that artificial intelligence and value-based care were the dominate themes coursing through every exhibit hall, educational session, poster presentation, plenary address and branded lecture during the six-day event.


Let Enterprise Imaging Tell the Whole Patient Story

Radiologist reviewing a brain scanEvery picture tells a story. That may be true. But when it comes to diagnostic imaging, one picture tells one aspect of the story. Radiologists and radiology departments need enterprise imaging to get the entire story. And only by getting the whole story can they create more value for clinicians, patients, and payers.

As radiologists attend educational sessions and keynote speeches and walk the massive exhibit halls at RSNA 2017, they will be hearing a lot about enterprise imaging. The concept is simple, but putting it together and making it work is a little more complex, albeit worth the effort.
