Podcast: Business Intelligence Tools in Radiology

June 5, 2012

Paul Chang, MD, explains how radiologists are using data analytics and business intelligence to improve efficiency and demonstrate their value in health care.

You can’t improve what you can’t measure, according to Paul Chang, MD, FSIIM, professor and vice chairman of radiology informatics at the University of Chicago School of Medicine, who is speaking at the SIIM 2012 conference in Orlando this week.

In this first part of a two-part podcast series, Chang details why and how radiologists are leveraging business intelligence tools to improve efficiency and quality. He also explains how radiology must look beyond the department and utilize enterprise-wide image management tools to really demonstrate the field’s value and relevance in health care.
