In this episode, hosts Mohannad and Prasanth interview Brad Genereaux about his chapter on Standards and Interoperability in the new edition of PII. Going beyond the #alphabetsoup of the important standards that govern the imaging informatics world, the discussion covers a brief history of the development of standards, such as DICOM, HL7, IHE, and looks at how they shape the landscape of the Imaging Enterprise. Indeed, awareness of these standards is even essential in deciding whether to adopt them, particularly when looking through the lens of deployment, maintenance and support, and eventual upgrade paths for the enterprise. In addition to developing richly integrated enterprises, standards play a crucial role in ensuring data portability. Brad highlights the working groups and their interactions with the community to maintain and improve these standards.
Brad Genereaux is Medical Imaging and Smart Hospitals Alliance Manager at NVIDIA, and has a keen focus on accelerating artificial intelligence, visualization, and virtualization in healthcare. As a passionate and engaged healthcare and medical imaging leader, Brad evangelizes the ubiquitous adoption and integration of seamless healthcare and medical imaging workflows at scale. Brad is deeply involved with the community in building and implementing standards like DICOM, HL7, and IHE to make this happen.
