Trends in Enterprise Imaging Solutions

Enterprise Imaging Solutions From Dicom Systems

Few industries can match the speed of the evolution in enterprise imaging solutions technology currently underway in medical imaging. Everything from modalities to data storage is advancing at a pace that is unprecedented in health care.

Indications are that enterprise imaging solutions will continue to unfold. Through cloud partnerships, we are exploring ways to enhance the patient experience while creating faster and more complete collaboration among all care providers in the enterprise, regardless of their physical location. As an added challenge, our cloud enterprise imaging solutions aim to have little or no migration challenges and minimal, if any, cost.

Dicom Systems is also immersed in the realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for enterprise imaging solutions. This is an emerging and expanding frontier, so much so that the AI “bubble” has grown to disquieting proportions, risking a similar fate as the dotcom bubble in the late 90’s and early 2000s. At this point, the progress of applied AI research – machine learning – shows that it is far from the super-intelligent status required to be of high value. Progress continues, however, and there are concrete steps forward to identify, codify, and assemble the building blocks of human intelligence.

We recognize that many physicians remain deeply suspicious of the impact enterprise imaging solutions using AI could potentially have on their future, so helping to train neural networks does not rank very high on their list of priorities. Eventually, AI capabilities will settle into a happy medium for all participants.

We will also see the continued evolution of Big Data for enterprise imaging solutions. Big Data is a tool that has grown unabated for many years.  Big Data is an opportunity to tap into mountains of information to help medical imaging enterprises become more valuable to patients and referrers and to streamline internal processes. Big Data does not seek to supplant clinicians or radiologists, but support them by providing efficient access to distilled, concise enterprise imaging solutions that might otherwise not be available for a variety of reasons.

The result of Big Data’s influence becomes information that can positively impact the crucial healthcare decisions being made on a daily basis.
