Notwithstanding many reimbursement issues, what is being done now that can improve efficiency and patient satisfaction at the same time? Who is reimbursing for eConsults and why? Share your views, challenges and experiences with the group in an open discussion format after hearing from Aventis/MyDocOnline about both provider and payer programs.

3:00 pm – 5:00 pm “Enterprise Imaging: Trends and TCO”, Rich Pollack, VP and CIO, MD Anderson Cancer Center, and Jay Backstrom, First Consulting Group, Facilitators

Get a new perspective on the direction of this growing industry. From PACS to Enterprise-wide Imaging, and from Radiology to multiple clinical specialties, the challenges are growing too. But so is the value. Rich will share some success stories about Stentor and LanVision implementations and developing a road map for consolidated imaging services. Jay will give examples of user needs and benefits, cite case studies, and total cost of ownership examples. Imaging vendors are all causing a stir with HIS and CIS development or acquisition, and some building “digital hospitals”, timing is good for this update.
