Radiology Grand Rounds: Innovation Within Healthcare: National Policy and Local Considerations

Miami, FL US
September 16, 2019

There are major integration challenges across the spectrum of healthcare for the effective use of new devices, data, and precision-health approaches within existing health information technology systems. Achieving meaningful transformation requires organizational governance to guide the development of clinical programs and the next phase of research methodologies, and to align the objectives from a cooperative network of partners and stakeholders.  

Dr. Zeke Silva will discuss the impact of national policies, how they shape healthcare innovation and their integration with patient care. 


Target Audience

Physicians, hospital administrators and other interested healthcare professionals.
