This webinar will be hosted by Jörg Studzinski (Director at the Research and Advisory Services department within HIMSS Analytics in Europe) who will be joining us to give a close look into the Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM).

The Webinar will provide an introduction to the Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM). Participants will learn how they can leverage the DIAM, developed by HIMSS Analytics and the European Society of Radiology, to improve their Imaging-IT environment. DIAM supports clinical and managerial users of medical imaging technology with their strategic, operational and procurement decisions. The model is designed to identify potential gaps in infrastructure and workflow, monitors technological progress, enables benchmarking with peer organisations and provides a roadmap for future investments.
