One key component of enterprise imaging is making data more accessible across the health system. The massive amount of patient data health systems collect can be a powerful driver for better patient outcomes. Provided, of course, that there are systems in place to collect and intelligently display data. Regardless of where the request originates or the data is captured, the process needs to be seamless.
For our latest eBook, Beyond Imaging: Key Components for a Holistic Enterprise Imaging Strategy, we asked experts in health IT and diagnostic imaging for their thoughts on improving patient outcomes through data management. Read on for highlights from their responses, and click the icon next to each quote to share.

It takes an entire health system working together to move beyond imaging into a new enterprise-wide paradigm–but the impact on patient outcomes is well worth the effort.
