The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) co-sponsored a workshop, "Images, Electronic Health Records, and Meaningful Use: A Vision for the Future." The workshop was held over two full days, January 10-11, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda in Bethesda, Maryland.
The goal of this workshop was to understand the value of access to images as part of the meaningful use of electronic medical records and to discuss future considerations for all stakeholders. By bringing together primary and specialist healthcare providers, vendors, payers, professional organizations, and government officials, the workshop provided an opportunity to highlight current use of imaging for informing care decisions, to detail issues in connectivity and interoperability, and to anticipate the benefits for health care of fully multimedia electronic health records that integrate images with alphanumeric and other forms of data.
The format of the workshop was a mixture of short presentations and panel discussions.
