While it’s been established that Meaningful Use applies to radiology, the topic still challenges radiologists as they prepare for compliance. Earlier this week we sponsored “The Evolution of Meaningful Use in Radiology” seminar in Dallas, Texas, featuring Keith J. Dreyer, D.O., Ph.D. , Associate Chairman, Medical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, Assistant Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School, and David S. Mendelson, M.D., FACR, Professor of Radiology, Chief of Clinical Informatics MSMC, Director of Radiology Information Systems, Pulmonary Radiology, The Mount Sinai Medical Center.
The goal of the session was to help attendees better understand the path to meaningful use, what compliance would look like at their facility and encourage the radiology department to get actively involved in the process.
Miranda Sullivan, St. Francis Hospital, Tulsa, Oklahoma, is responsible for Quality Control for Radiology and came to the seminar to be able to ensure her IT department, which is leading meaningful use compliance efforts, understands the implications for radiology .
Rob Brull, Corepoint Health, also attended the session and blogged about the importance of events like this focused on educating the radiology community and setting expectations for future meaningful use criteria.
