Tabatabaie Talks Medical Image Exchange, Interoperability in Podcast
lifeIMAGE Founder and Executive Vice President Hamid Tabatabaie recently had the opportunity to sit down with SearchHealthIT to discuss the need for interoperability in medical image exchange.
“In the modern medical environment patients move around,” Hamid says during the podcast.
He goes onto say that because of healthcare reform, patients can now go beyond the boundaries of their traditional providers. However, for hospitals sharing images through a VNA, this can be an issue when trying to access images from outside of their network.
This is where enterprise medical image sharing technology can come into play to allow access to a patient’s imaging history, despite where the exams were performed.
