For more than 20 years, RSNA has hosted public demonstrations of innovations in imaging informatics at its annual meetings. These events provide an opportunity to communicate with the radiology community about developments in informatics and their potential impact on radiologic care, generally focusing on how interoperability standards enable their implementation. For radiology systems vendors they have provided an opportunity to show the progress they have made in implementing these innovations.
At the RSNA 2014 Annual Meeting, we again plan to showcase developments in standards-based interoperability that enhance the quality, efficiency and safety of care in radiology.
Elements of the Demonstration
The demonstration will be based on the following key developments in radiology informatics:
This year RSNA planning significant changes in our approach to maximize the communications value of the demonstration to the radiologic community. We are planning:
Tightly focused demonstrations in a central booth designed to evoke clinical care settings.
A distributed demonstration at vendor booths using a scavenger hunt as an incentive to attendee participation.
The demonstration will simulate a range of advanced clinical capabilities including:
Invitation to Participate
Commercial vendors and research organizations are invited to participate in the demonstration. Participation is free, and participants will be selected on their ability to perform specific technical roles (IHE profiles, actors and transactions) and willingness to make available personnel and resources to prepare and staff their applications.
Preference will be given to participants who, where relevant, have successfully tested their roles at IHE Connectathons and submitted Integration Statements attesting to their systems’ capabilities to the IHE Product Registry.
Participants in the demonstration must fulfill the following commitments:
RSNA invites expressions of interest from vendors and research institutions to participate in the demonstration providing systems with the following capabilities:
