S5E11 - Open Community Meetups
Release Date: 03/14/2022
In this episode, hosts Mohannad, Prasanth, and Jason interview Teri Sippel Schmidt and Dr. Raym Geis about the Clinical Data Informatics initiative at SIIM. At its heart Clinical Data Informatics focuses on the use of tools such as Machine Learning algorithms, systems engineering, and medical imaging in sophisticated ways to derive insights and drive decision making for both clinical and business cases. Our guests introduce the series of videos developed in collaboration with SIIM. The discussion looks at the unique intersection of these disciplines and the need for a deep and broad...info_outline S05E16 PIIRT Miniseries - Standards and Interoperability
In this episode, hosts Mohannad and Prasanth interview Brad Genereaux about his chapter on Standards and Interoperability in the new edition of PII. Going beyond the #alphabetsoup of the important standards that govern the imaging informatics world, the discussion covers a brief history of the development of standards, such as DICOM, HL7, IHE, and looks at how they shape the landscape of the Imaging Enterprise. Indeed, awareness of these standards is even essential in deciding whether to adopt them, particularly when looking through the lens of deployment, maintenance and support, and eventual...info_outline S05E15 PIIRT Miniseries - Downtime Procedures
In this episode, hosts @mohannadhussain and Prasanth chat with @sylviadevlin about downtime procedures. Whether planned or unplanned, there are many steps that can be taken to mitigate these (mostly) unavoidable events. While most agree that effective planning, monitoring, and communication/follow-up are key to successful execution, the nuances of how to optimize these can be challenging for even an experienced CIIP. System fortification for maximum uptime and seamless failover, detailed scripts for individual systems and processes, and templates for end-user communication are just a few of...info_outline S05E99 Season 5 Wrap-up
