CV Thought Leadership, an extension of the LUMEDX Success in CVIS Thought Leaders Webinar series, is dedicated to discussing the challenges that heart and vascular centers face today. In his interview, Dr. Skelton articulates where cardiovascular information technology has been, where it's going - and why.

"One of the major trends that we're seeing in cardiology - and it's a trend that we all need to embrace - is the idea that both images and non-imaging data have to move from place to place fluidly, without a lot of constraints. In the EHR era, that's going to be increasingly important," says Dr. Skelton. "We're facing a more interconnected healthcare world, and our ability to exchange data has to improve."
