The challenges of storing medical images has been one of the big stories of 2018 on Future Healthcare Today. With digital radiography and other types of digital imaging now a standard part of patient care, hospitals and healthcare organizations are struggling to find ways to manage these additional terabytes of data that are entering their data storage environments every day.
While it might be tempting to hide behind the spinning disks and wish that film was still a viable option, digital imaging is here to stay because of the tremendous benefits that it brings to clinicians in advancing patient care and improving health outcomes. The smart approach is to join Kim Garriott and Tony Turner on Tuesday, December 18 at 12 Noon ET on the Intel Builders webinar as they discuss strategies to improve medical image management.
