Fierce launches new medical imaging site

Today, the FierceHealthcare group, which includes FierceHealthIT, launched a new weekly newsletter and an accompanying website: FierceMedicalImaging. "The proliferation of electronic medical records and health information exchanges has created new opportunities for providers to collaborate and improve patient care," writes FierceHealthcare Publisher Wendy Johnson. "But these advances have also created complex IT challenges, particularly when it comes to accessing medical images--arguably one of the most important components of a patient's medical record."

On our new site and in our weekly newsletter, we'll report on the strategies that healthcare providers are implementing to overcome their IT challenges and maximize their opportunities. We'll also arm readers with the latest, need-to-know news and information about business solutions, regulatory challenges, research innovation and keep you up-to-date on the latest trends in this very complex and rapidly growing area of healthcare. Website
