Today, most radiology departments with AI-enhanced imaging applications have less-than-ideal workflow integration. Standalone AI solutions that require physicians to swivel to a different screen or log in to separate systems force the physician to be the human data interoperability layer.
Enterprise AI platforms that deliver intersystem interoperability into physicians’ current workflows are an excellent initial step.
With their reputation as early adopters of new technology, radiologists are perhaps best-suited to guide a hospital in developing a long-term, enterprise-wide AI strategy. In addition, with a significant percentage of patient encounters involving imaging studies, radiologists are gaining real-world experience integrating AI into their workflows and demonstrating the utility of AI to clinicians in other specialties.
