PACS 2007 to Emphasize IT Integration
The 7th Annual PACS Conference, “Informatics: The Foundation of the Digital Healthcare Enterprise,” to be held March 20-23, 2007, in San Antonio, TX, will focus on how to implement and integrate the multitude of clinical information systems (data and images) into a cohesive and seamless digital healthcare enterprise for institutions with minimal information technology (IT) and medical informatics support.
The conference will feature two separate learning tracks to provide an interactive forum for: planning and developing an RFP and implementing RIS, PACS, CPOE, EHR and communicating in a digital environment; and the technology, workflow and medical informatics requirements for instituting the digital environment in clinical specialties other than radiology and in critical care areas of the healthcare facility.
PACS 2007 is presented by the Department of Imaging Services at the University of Rochester Medical Center. For more details, please visit www. urmc.rochester.edu/pacs2007.
